Django is a fun, hilarious albeit brutal tale

By PATRICK HALL
Special to The Wilson Post

Theres no sugar-coating anything in Quentin Tarantinos new film Django Unchained, nor should there be, and the movie is downright awesome, hilarious and so brutally honest that it is impossible to ignore when looking for the best movie of 2012.

In 1858, German bounty-hunter Dr. King Shultz (Christoph Waltz) encounters the slave Django (Jamie Foxx) and sets him free to help find three outlaws to collect the bounty. Along the way, Django and Shultz turn to freeing Djangos wife Broomhilda from the brutal Mississippi plantation owner Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio).

Right from the get-go we get no apologies from Tarantino on the manner of this revenge-film, similar to his 2009 film Inglourious Basterds. Like that film, Django is one in which the oppressed are given the chance to pay back their oppressors.

For Django it means, Kill white folks and pay you for it? Whats not to like? The film spares no expense on its brutality with the deaths of countless slavers, plantation owners, overseers and more. To be honest, it didnt bother me in the least.
