Spoiler alert: This news story reveals the details of the plot of Django Unchained.

Django Unchained
Production year: 2012
Directors: Quentin Tarantino
Cast: Christoph Waltz, Jamie Foxx, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Kerry Washington, Kurt Russell, Leonardo DiCaprio, Samuel L Jackson

Quentin Tarantino has revealed the synopsis for his much discussed forthcoming film Django Unchained, billed as a western set in the deep south in the period just prior to the American civil war.

The plot rundown expands on the backstory revealed in numerous leaks from bloggers claiming to have read Tarantino's screenplay last year, most of whom gave a positive verdict. It confirms that the film will begin with German-born bounty hunter Dr King Schultz (Christoph Waltz) freeing the title character and helping to train him in combat so that he can return to the plantation where his wife is incarcerated in the hope of liberating her.

The synopsis reads: "Set in the South two years before the Civil War, Django Unchained stars Academy award-winner Jamie Foxx as Django, a slave whose brutal history with his former owners lands him face-to-face with German-born bounty hunter Dr King Schultz (Academy award-winner Christoph Waltz). Schultz is on the trail of the murderous Brittle brothers, and only Django can lead him to his bounty. The unorthodox Schultz acquires Django with a promise to free him upon the capture of the Brittles – dead or alive.

"Success leads Schultz to free Django, though the two men choose not to go their separate ways. Instead, Schultz seeks out the South's most wanted criminals with Django by his side. Honing vital hunting skills, Django remains focused on one goal: finding and rescuing Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), the wife he lost to the slave trade long ago.

"Django and Schultz's search ultimately leads them to Calvin Candie (Academy award-nominee Leonardo DiCaprio), the proprietor of "Candyland," an infamous plantation where slaves are groomed by trainer Ace Woody (Kurt Russell) to battle each other for sport. Exploring the compound under false pretenses, Django and Schultz arouse the suspicion of Stephen (Academy award-nominee Samuel L Jackson), Candie's trusted house slave. Their moves are marked, and a treacherous organisation closes in on them. If Django and Schultz are to escape with Broomhilda, they must choose between independence and solidarity, between sacrifice and survival …"

Django Unchained began filming in California in January before shifting to Wyoming and Louisiana. The cast also features Don Johnson as another plantation owner, Spencer "Big Daddy" Bennett, The Wire's Michael K Williams, Walton Goggins of the TV series Justified and rapper RZA. The film's title is a riff on the 1966 Sergio Corbucci spaghetti western Django, though it is not known how much of the storyline will be borrowed from its predecessor.

I thought this was an ingenious piece of story-telling:

But the cartoon violence of Kill Bill Vol 1 was a bit of a turn-off for me, I'm afraid:

But really it's 1970s Chambara violence. Chambara is a unique form of film set in the harsh realm of Feudal Japan, usually Edo period 1603-1867. These films are inspired by the heroic exploits of majestic Samurai, the lonely and tragic path of the masterless Ronin, and the deceptive and mysterious deeds of the ghost-like Ninja. Spurting geysers of blood manifest the consuming revenge, blind fury, hearts of fire, and reckless honour of the fearless Edo swordfighters.

What is the most discomfiting play-acting performance by Tarantin? Prolly 'Destiny Turn on the Radio' because he has a lot screentime and also, Bobcat Goldthwait nonwithstanding, also viewer must suffer from James 'Jim' Belushi, the Anti-Borga agent of Obo.

maybe QT should spend less time watching his own
flicks, and more time studying the Australian accent -

"Whenever I hear directors say they don’t watch their movies or they
can’t watch their movies because all they see are the flaws and it’s
just too painful, I feel soooo sorry for those people," he said. "How
can you get up in the morning? How can you do what you do if you think
your stuff is so shitty? If it was too painful to watch my movies, I
wouldn’t make another one! I would just give up at some point! I just
feel bad for them. I feel like their lives aren’t as enriched as they
could be.

"I watch my movies all the time, and I’m always — at home you have a
whole lot of movie channels, and they show the films uncut and you
just kind of hit the guide on your button and see all the movies
playing for the next three hours going down the line. And you go down
it and whenever I see one of my movies is playing, I’ll turn it on.
Maybe I’ll watch it for a little bit, maybe I’m going through the
scroll to see what else is on, but I always watch it, whenever it
happens to come up. And sometimes I watch it for a bit and then I’m
done, and sometimes I watch the whole thing. I hadn’t seen Kill Bill:
Vol. 1 I think in a couple of years. I’d seen Kill Bill: Vol 2. I’d
screened it just for myself on film in the last year. But Kill Bill:
Vol. 1 I hadn’t. And I just noticed in 15 minutes it was going to be
coming on, like Showtime 2, and I thought, Well, you know, I’ll watch
it again and I’ll watch it through the opening credits, through the
"Bang Bang You Shot Me Down" opening credits, and that will be it.
Goddamn if I didn’t watch that whole motherfucking thing to the
fucking end! And I mean right to the very end. The last credits. And,
uh, I felt very, very gratified."

Kill Bill says lots of things ... but prehaps one of the moast improtant things said is that ... if yer a one-eyed swordsman or swordswoman, then you really must take pains to protect yer one good eye

whatever satisfaction derived from that is not worth suffering through his Australian accented acting

or maybe der stiftkopf was commenting generally on his dislike of the film ... yes, the film was probably too anti-slavery for one such as der stiftkopf
