There’s nothing that compares to Tarantino’s combination of blood, guts, gore, and great dialogue! This is his seventh film as both writer and director and it’s a brutal revenge western with violence so over the top it’s comedic.
We follow Django (Jamie Foxx), a slave turned bounty hunter, under the guidance of Dr King Schultz (Christoph Waltz of Inglorious Basterds fame).. The Dr’s new accomplice gets a taste of freedom for the first time but soon learns that until he finds and frees his wife Broomhilda (Kerry Washington) he will never be truly unchained. So they set out to find and rescue her, a slave at the Candie Land plantation in Mississippi, owned by the racist, skin-crawling sadist Calvin Candie (unforgettably played by Leonardo DiCaprio). Tarantino has fun with this dark period of US history, exploring strong and complex characters and showcasing nerve-wracking scenes of brutality.. It’s a good movie!
