Gary and I went to see Django Unchained today. We both enjoyed it but if you don’t like violence and gore I would advise you to avoid this film. It’s a typical Tarantino film in that there is a lot of violence, mostly, but not all of it is quite stylised. It is extremely graphic on the horrors of slavery; the most horrific moment is when it shows a runaway slave being torn to pieces by a pack of dogs.
I was glad I wore my hat because I just pulled the brim down over my eyes so I couldn’t see that bit. It was too much even for me! Leonardo Di Caprio is a right bastard in it! And if anything, Samuel L. Jackson is worse! I though Jamie Fox’s performance in the title role was almost too understated but that’s just my opinion.
A good film but not for the faint hearted.
