Django Unchained
Quentin Tarantino
Jamie Fox, Leonardo DiCaprio, Christoph Waltz

Quentin Tarantino’s latest revenge saga, this “Southern” merges the director’s favorite genre, the spaghetti western, with the bloody history of the pre-Civil War South, its heroes a freed slave and German bounty hunter (Oscar winners Jamie Fox and Christoph Waltz) on the trail of a gang of killers and a charmingly evil plantation owner (an over-the-top Leonardo DiCaprio). With his trademark blend of comically sharp, badass dialogue and righteous yet gruesome violence, Tarantino breathes new life into the Western, gathering a motley group of iconic “guest stars” (Don Johnson, Jonah Hill, Samuel Jackson) as well as a great soundtrack (James Brown, Johnny Cash) to accompany the bloody action. As with the genre mash-ups Inglourious Basterds and Kill Bill, Django—the “D” is silent—is a riotous mixture of exploitation movie madness and bravura filmmaking, with a killer cast along for the ride.
