Quentin Tarantino is not known for deep intense intricate psychological dramas. He’s much more straightforward – usually, in his films some sort of injustice happens, and revenge follows. Simple, clear, well-constructed. Watching “Django Unchained”, I often got the feeling, just for a minute or two, that it’s not a Tarantino movie. This doesn’t mean it doesn’t bear the stylistic characteristics, but there are some surprisingly delicate moments sprinkled in the gore. On the other hand, the story and characters are enhanced by great acting performances. The movie doesn’t teach you history, nor does it leave you thinking for days about hidden meanings. I liked it a lot, despite not being a fan of violent bloody movies, because it is really good. “Django Unchained” is, essentially, the proof that Quentin Tarantino still has resources for further evolution as a filmmaker, combined with pure acting talent, everything marinated in tomato sauce. Hardly a waste of tomato sauce.
It’s high-quality entertainment.
It may seem not serious enough to some, others may simply dislike Tarantino’s style, but any faults are subjective and quite irrelevant.
Would I see it again? – Yes
My Rating (1 to 10): 9.5
Don’t pronounce the “D”. “The “D” is silent, hillbilly.” I just had to slip this quote from the movie into the posting 😀
