DVD & Blu-ray review: Django Unchained (18)
Quentin Tarantino, DVD/Blu-ray (165mins)
Friday 17 May 2013
“His name is Django, he's a free man, and he can ride what he pleases...” Tarantino, like Spielberg and Billy Wilder before him, is in the business of entertainment and this lurid, frequently funny pre-Civil War Western is wildly entertaining. Christoph Waltz bagged the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor, but he's a leading man as the empathetic bounty hunter Dr King Schultz.
The physician, after slaying a trio of infamous murderers, sets about helping freed slave Django (Jamie Foxx) liberate his enslaved wife (Kerry Washington) from Leonardo DiCaprio's sadistic plantation owner. Stirring cinema from a singular talent.
