Tarantino and Iñárritu Tackle the Western

Two of the most divisive movies of 2015 happen to be Westerns, and they happen to be directed by a pair of the most skilled and polarizing auteurs in the film industry. We're talking about The Revenant, of course, and The Hateful Eight. One received a boatload of Academy Award nominations; the other one is being vilified as racist, misogynist, and just not that good. But are those critical assessments justified?

Andrew and Steve get together once again to chat about both films, and the legacies of their directors, on the latest episode of the In Reel Deep Podcast.
