    The Prodigy

    The Prodigy plays on the fact that reincarnation is possible, as the soul of a serial killer is re-born into the body of a newborn baby boy. Many times horror films involving children run the risk of inadvertently turning the scary into something laughable, so kudos should be given here for keeping things relatively creepy for much of the film. The real struggles here are with the plot, specifically the actions of the parents of this “possessed” eight year old…

    Tarantino's love of old time Hollywood is on full display in this flashback to 1969. Three stories unfold amidst an extremely detailed and realistic depiction of life back in the late 60s, and it's a treat to watch such great actors as DiCaprio and Pitt romp in Quentin's playground.

    As the plot bubbles to full boil, just allow yourself to be immersed in this world as Tarantino crafts scene after scene with spot on dialogue amidst this visual spectacle. Its another great film by a great filmmaker.
