The Bear Jew
The infamous Bear Jew (Eli Roth) puts the fabled Nazi loyalty to the test, earning a standing ovation for it. The anticipation builds as that slow tapping of the Bear’s bat in the dark tunnel gets progressively louder, leading to the well-warranted kill shot. Tarantino holds nothing back as the full sight and sound of the Bear Jew’s homerun hit is exposed in a gritty display of entertaining murder.
Tarantino can accomplish an unforgettable hit with great dialogue as well as quarts of blood. In one last effort to leave the world with head held high, True Romance’s Clifford Worley (Dennis Hopper) gives his assassins the “real,” and seemingly insulting, story of their Sicilian ancestry, much to the amusement of mafia consigliere Vincenzo Coccotti (Christopher Walken). Coccotti is so enthralled by the balls on his captor, the audience and Worley have a glimmer of hope that he may have talked his way out of his own death…to no avail.
