Reply to ""Django Unchained""

I saw the movie about two weeks ago and I must say, it lived up to the Quentin Tarantino brand; excessive graphic violence, luridly sadistic with individuals driven by the need to inflict extreme violence and death on their victims and his person obsession with the "N" word.  This is the expected under laying bedrock of his movies (e.g., Pulp Fiction, Inglourious Basterds, Kill Bill, Reservoir Dogs, et al). The film is in two parts: the first half is a mock Western; the second is a mock-revenge uber melodrama about slavery and rescuing of Django’s separated wife.

 

Tarantino didn't disappoint those who love his penchant for gory disturbing violence and his concupiscent love of the "N" word (probably to the glee of many American Negroes who love the word just as much as he does). But I was surprised to see Samuel Jackson play the part of a virulent and almost demonic master house slave (the term "uncle Tom" is an oxymoron). Love the man's acting but this particular role he accepted really shocked me….
