Here’s the trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s forthcoming film, Django Unchained:
I am fantastically excited about this movie! I love most of Tarantino’s work. Deathproof was only so-so, but Pulp Fiction and the Kill Bills are two of my favorite films (remember that Kill Bill was meant to be a single release). I am also very intrigued to see what Tarantino does with the uncomfortable topic which was the subject of my dissertation: what is the appropriate African American response to racism? As the trailer says, the obvious answer would seem to be “vengeance,” but Tarantino is a master of misdirection, so we’ll have to wait and see about the film’s final verdict. It comes out on December 25 just like The Great Gatsby, so I might have to spend all day in the theater.
