Tarantino's Django Unchained Set To Be A Big Title In 2013

Subscribe Quentin Tarantino

Quentin Tarantino certainly doesn’t do things halfway. Weeks after its premiere, Tarantino’s Django Unchained is still making headlines.

Some praise it for its wit and humour in treating a difficult subject. Others (a lot of others) with director Spike Lee at the helm criticize the film for insulting the memory of black slaves by reducing the topic of slavery to something as trivial as a spaghetti western. In the end, those criticisms only meant that more people flocked to the theatres to see the controversial flick. The occasional racial slur featured in the film only added fuel to the fire, though, as Patch.com’s Brett Martin put it – it’s a a Quentin Tarantino movie – you have to expect it.

The unfortunate timing of Django’s release also meant that it got mixed in the media frenzy following the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown. For a while, Django Unchained became one of the titles that critics of media violence cited over and over again. One thing seems certain though – with gore and blood galore, sharp dialogue and a star-studded cast, the film definitely isn’t forgettable, and all of the additional buzz around the violence it looks like Tarantino’s most recent success will keep generating hype and sales well into the new year.
