Django Unchained

Django Unchained ★★★★

Django Unchained is Tarantino's superhero film, and it's just goofy and gleefully violent enough for it to work.

The blood is colorful and outrageous, the tonal shifts are crazy and all over the place, and the style is almost too much to bare.

Yet, the messy quality works for the ambitious and entertaining joyride that this film is. Sure, it's long and (at times) full of itself, but we're talking about Tarantino here.

The performances are all fantastic, with Waltz and Dicaprio being standouts. Their back and forth is just wonderful to listen to, as is the rest of Tarantino's snappy script.

The cinematography is beautiful, the music is great and the sense of place is oddly in the forefront, with Tarantino really having some fun with locations.

All in all, Django Unchained is a messy but outrageous ride; definitely one of Tarantino's more entertaining movies in his filmography.
