My first Tarantino movie. Not sure how to react. The beginning was breathtaking, the middle section was uninteresting, and then I began to wonder whether I was wasting my time. The ending was so amusing that it made me laugh out loud, though. And the end credits music had me in stitches. Couldn’t get any more absurd.
