This is Tarantino's political anti South, anti white propaganda film.....and this from a Tarantino fan. He has Christoph play the identical character from Inglorious Bastards and even uses the same trick of speaking a different language so that the group around him will not understand the plan. Why repeat the same scene and charter.
This is basically southern slave owners substituted for Natzis. Natzis, however, focused on the animation of the Jews and domination of other countries. While I have limited knowledge of southern slavery, I doubt this is how most slave owners treated their 'property."

Make no mistake about it this is a Quintan Teratino movie. If you have never seen a QT Movie (i.e. Pulp Fiction, Natural Born Killers, Reservoir Dogs...etc) prepare yourself. I do not suggest bringing any children under the age of 18y/o. Why would you though? It's a QT movie. Did I mention, THIS IS A QT MOVIE!!!

Typical Tarrantino film. Lots of blood, long and funny to some but stupid to others! Will not see it again. Didn't hold a candle to Pulp Fiction and can't imagine it being nominated for any award!

Funny, great acting, a spaghetti western,with a few surprises. A Western which takes in pre Civil War South, where the bad guys get their due. The audience loved it and applauded at the end.

Yes it's violent, but this is Tarentino at his best. The constant sense of outrage at the behaviors of the period driven characters is perfectly tempered by the absurdity of their beliefs and actions. The emotional whipsaw of hilarity; then violence and sometimes violence AS hilarity was nothing short of genius. Remember how conflicted we all felt watching the unhinged; unapologetic violence of Pulp Fiction while laughing so hard it left us dazed and confused? Well Django is an all-out thrill ride that demands you pay attention to the incredible injustice that was and in all to many instances, still is rampant. Anyone upset by the 100+ utterances of the "N" word-trust me; it's use is more than balanced by the sheer ignorance and ineptitude written into the character portrayal of the slave owners and those who supported the institution. This is the most fun I've had at a movie all year. What a way to end or start the year. See this movie; early and often! Thanks Quentin.
