Saw this for a second time and have to say it’s just as good as I remembered it. Loved it. Actually considering seeing it again with my mom.
Tarantino is a genius. Django depicts some hard to swallow, but historically accurate situations for slaves (Mandingo fighting, dogs on slaves, metal devices and shackles around the slaves, the hotbox,etc.) that are usually not shown in movies and are definitely not known by people of this day. In fact, I give Tarantino kudos for making much of the audience in the suburban white theater uncomfortable, because let’s face it… slavery was not a comfortable situation and too many avoid the subject before learning the total intensity of how bad it was. Before I say too much and make this into a rant I’ll have to apologize for, I’ll stop. I can’t explain enough why this movie is so great. Entertaining, BADASS, hilarious, and historically in context.
