  1. Django Unchained

    Saw Django Unchained yesterday. Hard to watch in some places. Haven't thought it through as much as I'd like, but I'm coming around to the idea that Tarantino has successfully satirized the perceived racial dichotomy of the USA in the way that he satirized portrayed-violence in Inglourious Basterds. I'm not sure I agree with some critics that the movie is "about" the US' slaving past. To me, it seemed more concerned with violence as entertainment(similar to Inglourious Basterds) and how we consider ourselves within races and racial roles today. The line that really stuck out to me is towards the middle of the movie, in a conversation between Django and Monsieur Candie. Candie mentions that Django's German friend looks sick watching a horrible act of violence, and Django replies, "I'm more accustomed to Americans than he is." Anyone else seen it? I'd be interested in hearing someone else thoughts. Do you think the film went too far with the gratuity and vulgarity? Do you think we're supposed to be entertained by it? Do you think anything less would even be remarked upon?
