Django Unchained

Django Unchained ★★★★

Stylistically, and aesthetically, it's masterfully Tarantino. It has the best soundtrack of any of his films, and the soundtrack really brings the whole piece together. The cast is fantastic, and works together, perfectly.

Two criticisms: lack of developed women characters. Had such a great chance to expand on Broomhilda's backstory, and didn't. Also chose to not expand on her character at all, and used her as simply a plot point.

Other criticism is that the ending felt rushed. It was a long movie, and it felt like there was so much buildup and they just crammed the ending into a really short amount of time. It would have been nice to have the ending expanded on and some of the lesser important middle bit trimmed in length.

Great character performances all around, but it would have been nice to see more confrontation of racism, and Django getting to kill more racists.
