The film: “Django Unchained”
Good, bad or ugly?
A stark portrayal of an ugly time
Lots of debate about this film.
Bill O’Reilly hates it.
Liberals hate it.
So there must be something very good about it.
What’s good about it?
No one can walk away from Django without viscerally understanding that all those fine mansions, fancy ladies, and gracious manners were fronts for concentration camps run by legally-enabled sadists.
That’s a win given that these places are currently tourist destinations people visit in droves to rhapsodize about the “romantic” Old South.
Tarantino has spit in that soup in a way viewers of this movie will never be able to recover from.
