And You Thought It Was Safe(?)


Django Unchained (2012)

Our review of Quentin Tarantino’s 8th feature, a $100 million Revenge Western set in the 1858 American South that has nothing, really, to do with the 1966 Franco Nero film with which it shares half a title. But don’t let that stop you. It didn’t me.

I appreciate the handling of Django Unchained and slavery. Quentin Tarantino may actually do more for America with this movie by highlighting what a sick “evil as any other in the history of mankind” institution slavery was in his Grindhouse-esque “Southern” than just about a century and a half of tapdancing around the issue have done. I particularly like Samuel L. Jackson’s character for nicely illustrating how some people can become enslaved to the institution and lose themselves. One reviewer nicely said, “He had come to love Big Brother.” It’s just extra-punch worthy because Leo’s character is a semi-moron manchild.

Excellent review and I loved the hat. I agree with everything you said–which doesn’t leave me much room to discuss specifics, sadly.
