We have to thank Quentin Tarantino for giving to humanity through cinema the gift of vindication and the re-writing of history to help us make amends and forget our mistakes.
He is a story teller, and his movies have that splash of cruel reality, creating a self-made hero, who is here not to save us, but to fulfill his own agenda.
And hidden in incredible amounts of fake blood is the blood of the innocent that trough history have never received that sweet revenge. (whoever said revenge is a dish best served cold was wrong. A huge part of us will jump to the first chance of pay back, admit it.)
The soft history of a slave, and I say soft because even when we saw some over the top beatings and horrible human behavior, things were much worse, besides, this was not a period, themed specific movie, we have Lincoln or Argo for that, Django Unchained is an action dramedy set to portrait… well some people during the time of slavery!
An overall pleasant viewing with a few flaws, because nothing is perfect:
Why do we need the bad acting of Tarantino? he looked fat, with a horrible Australian accent and all I can say is thanks for blowing himself up.
Why hire the same actor for 2 different roles and kill him… I don’t get that!
Why would you dress anyone as Austin Powers?
Slavery is so wrong, and that part was very clear… the movie however … wasn’t! it was nice! Classic Tarantino.
P.S: Great casting!
