An undercover state cop who has infiltrated an Irish gang and a mole in the police force working for the same mob race to track down and identify each other before being exposed to the enemy, after both sides realize their outfit has a rat.
Former dentist, Dr. King Schultz, buys the freedom of a slave, Django, and trains him with the intent to make him his deputy bounty hunter. Instead, he is led to the site of Django's wife who is under the hands of Calvin Candie, a ruthless plantation owner. Written by
Sid Haig was a strong contender for the role of "Mr. Stonesipher", so much so that casting director Victoria Thomas informed Haig's agent, "It's a lock". Quentin Tarantino himself scheduled, and later canceled at the last minute, two auditions for Haig. Two months later the role quietly went to David Steen instead. Tarantino being known for his extremely dry humor, this "prank" is presumably rooted in Haig turning down the role of Marcellus Wallace in Pulp Fiction (1994) 17 years previously. See more »
While Schultz was talking to Big Daddy on his cart, right after he introduced his horse, Fritz, we can see 6 people walking toward them near the gate. When the scene cuts to focus on Django, only 3 people are shown where there were 6. Then when it switches back to both Django and Schultz, there are again 6 people there. See more »

Normally, the logo for The Weinstein Company is silent. In this film, it is accompanied with the theme music for Miramax from the early 90s, in a nod to Tarantino's first 2 films. See more »

At first I didn't want to see this movie because of some political remarks made by Jamie Foxx and Samuel Jackson, two of my previously favorite actors, but Quintin Tarentino is a great director, so I broke down and saw it. Glad I did. This was absolutely one of the best movies of the year. Although Jamie Foxx has top billing, this film would not have been anywhere as good without Christoph Waltz. He stole every scene he was in. Brilliant acting and great comedic delivery. Leo was great too. Lots of blood, something expected in most of Quintins movies, but a great story. Also expect to hear the N word about 2000 times. Cristoph Waltz should get the Oscar for his performance. Should get nominated for best picture. This is absolutely a must see.
