Blunt Reviews Presents: Django Unchained (2013)

django unchained

I know the film is excessive and self indulgent, but I love it. Tarantino is an interesting yet ill disciplined director, but he makes up for this with his fantastic screenplay writing. It’s not for the faint hearted as we see violence pushed to new extremes in this slavery era spaghetti western, but the visual style that Tarantino adopts is to be expected. The cast is superb, with Christoph Waltz quite rightfully winning an Oscar, but the understated hero of the film is Leonardo DiCaprio. It’s loud, excessive, outrageous comedy and violence from start to finish, but it’s bloody brilliant.

One thought on “Blunt Reviews Presents: Django Unchained (2013)

  1. No other Tarantino film that I’ve seen in a theater went by as fast as this one. In 1994, Pulp Fiction was a bore to me until Marvin got his head blow off. But Django was pure entertainment. It really did feel like it was under two hours. His characters are very well drawn out and unforgettable. This is something I’ve come to expect from Tarantino and he delivered again in this one.
