Get on the Trailer: Django Unchained

Trailer Review: Django Unchained
Quentin Tarantino
Leonardo DiCaprio, Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Kerry Washington

Nothing conjures up the brutality of slavery like that of blood sprayed upon unpicked cotton. A faustian bargain is struck between a freed slave named Django and a bounty hunter named Dr. King Schultz. In exchange for eyeballing a fugitive for Shultz, Django gets his freedom and a reunion with his wife, Broomhilda Von Shaft; her name likely makes her an ancestor of John Shaft, an icon of the Blaxploitation genre which greatly influenced the film’s director, Quentin Tarantino.

Along the way, Django is transformed from a victim of injustice into an agent of righteous vengeance. As with Inglourious Basterds, Tarantino’s latest offering is a brutal story that never occurred, if only wishing made it so.
