Movie Review #335: Django Unchained

When you can’t stop watching, you know it’s a masterpiece

It’s violent, gruesome, intelligent, and goddamn entertaining. You won’t even mind the 165-minute screen time because it’s just so remarkably well-done. I don’t even remember the last time I enjoyed a film this much as Quentin Tarentino simply did his magic and produced what is probably his best film to date.

If you’re conservative, you don’t even want to know how violent the film gets, and frankly it’s this quality of Tarentino’s works that makes it so enjoyable. Yes, you WILL love the violence, but only because you’re given a reason for it. That just shows how Quentin can manipulate the feelings of moviegoers. He makes sure that you root for Django (Jamie Foxx) and Dr. Schultz (Christoph Waltz) and the same time you’ll want express your anger towards DiCaprio and Samuel L. Jackson for being such maniacal and unforgiving bastards. All four of them were fantastic and worthy of praise, with the first two providing my favorite performances of the year.
