Sean of The Daily Rotation wrote, "Since Quentin Tarantino has now been making films for just over 20 years now, his penchant for controversy has waned over the years. I don’t know if that’s a product of people becoming more familiar with Tarantino as a filmmaker (and getting used to his films being very violent) or the fact that media as a whole has grown so much, and that violence being depicted in it has become more of the norm. Are we more desensitized toward violence now than we were 20 years ago? Probably. But Quentin Tarantino can’t be blamed for that, especially in a country that has waged two wars in the past 11 years."
