The "d" in "Django Unchained" might be silent, but Quentin Tarantino's newest film is anything but. The two-hour-and-45-minute homage to Spaghetti Western's brutally depicts conditions for slaves in pre-Civil War America. The incredibly violent film is R-rated for good reason: "Django Unchained" includes whippings, brandings, beatings, dog attacks and even threatened castration, all directed at slaves.
"We all intellectually 'know' the brutality and inhumanity of slavery," Tarantino reportedly said at a screening of "Django Unchained" in the U.K. on Thursday. "But after you do the research it's no longer intellectual any more, no longer just historical record –- you feel it in your bones. It makes you angry, and want to do something ... I'm here to tell you, that however bad things get in the movie, a lot worse sh-t actually happened."
