I went to see Django Unchained last night and it was the most insanely extravagant, overwhelmingly violent and outrageously entertaining Tarantino film I’ve ever seen. However, he successfully balances the blood-spattering violence and sharp dialogues with the controversial historical topic of American slavery and shows the absolute horrors of the pre-abolition period.
Is ‘Django Unchained’ over the top? Of course it is! It wouldn’t be Tarantino otherwise.
Still not convinced? Jamie Foxx, Kerry Washington and particularly Samuel L Jacksons and Christoph Waltz are just absolutely brilliant!
Oh yeah, and Leonardo DiCaprio.
Shall I repeat that?
Yes, you’ve read that correctly.
If that doesn’t convince you, I don’t know what will! ( Seriously, the man could read a dictionary on screen and it would still be Oscar-worthy 😉 )
