Django Unchained is a saucy spaghetti western.

Honestly, it is difficult to determine whether Quentin Tarantino is making a bold artistic statement with his latest film, Django Unchained, or simply trying to see what he can get away with in Hollywood. This film takes place during America’s most shameful time period and there are moments when Tarantino addresses the gravity of the situation with great importance, but then there are other times you wonder what he is thinking. For the most part, the film is a success because Tarantino accomplishes everything he set out do, but I would not consider this film his best work by a longshot. Although, Jamie Foxx and Christoph Waltz have a great chemistry together and Leonardo DiCaprio rises to the occasion as an egotistical and diabolical slave owner, Tarantino’s “so-called” style gets in the way of the film when it comes to the ultra-violence because it really becomes distracting, and in my opinion hurts the film from meeting its full potential.
