Countdown to Django Unchained: Early reviews
Move over the Avengers, piss of Dark Knight and vamoose you Hobbit critters, there is only one film that matters this year and that is - Tarantino's Django Unchained.
"Quentin Tarantino's brilliant and brutal revenge western is a wildly exciting return to form: a thrilling adventure in genre and style climaxing in a bizarre and nightmarish scenario in a slave plantation in 1858. The movie is managed with Tarantino's superb provocation and audacity, with a whiplash of cruelty and swagger of scorn. It is superbly acted by Christoph Waltz, Jamie Foxx, Kerry Washington, Leonardo DiCaprio and, particularly, Samuel L Jackson, who creates a masterpiece with his chilling character Stephen, the grey, stooping servant-elder to DiCaprio's unspeakable slave-owner Calvin Candie." The Guardian
"Tarantino's most distrubing movie." Mike Ryan, Huffington Post
