There are few filmmakers you can count on for a unique vision at the cinema these days. As a result, I sometimes have a hard time preparing myself when such an occasion occurs, and while you can never quite prepare for a Quentin Tarantino movie, there are aspects of Django Unchained that certainly caught me off guard. Is it good? Yes! Is it great? Yes! Is it funny? Yes! Is it violent? Terrifyingly so. Not since Michael Madsen sliced off a police officer's ear in Reservoir Dogs, and poured gasoline on the open wound, have I felt such an emotional response to violence in a Tarantino film. Torturing Nazis in Inglourious Bastereds is one thing, but watching two slaves battle to the death and the canine torture of another is tough to sit through. Tarantino's films are known for their gratuitous violence, and there is no lack of gratuitous violence in Django Unchained, »
