FILM REVIEW – Django Unchained

By Marty Mulrooney

Django Unchained

Django Unchained is a Western directed by Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction, Inglourious Basterds). Set in America’s pre-Civil War Deep South – positioning the film as more of a ‘Southern’ – the film stars Jamie Foxx (Ray) as Django Freeman, a freed black slave who sets out to rescue his enslaved wife (Kerry Washington) from a cruel and deranged plantation owner named Calvin J. Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio). Teaming up with German bounty hunter and ex-dentist Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz), Django embarks upon an epic journey frequently punctuated by Tarantinos’ trademark cartoon violence and dark humour.
