If you read only one movie review of Django Unchained, this is it. Thom Hartmann is my first source for politics and “Renaissance Thinking About the Issues of Our Day.” He doesn’t disappoint here.
I plan to see Django tomorrow. I have not heard one negative review from my contacts. They all say, “you have to see it!”
UPDATE 12/19/12…Due to the Newtown CT tragedy, Django and other movies have been pulled or cancelled from airing.
Tarantinto…“I was always amazed so many Western films could get away with not dealing with slavery at all,” Tarantino said. “Hollywood didn’t want to deal with it because it was too ugly and too messy. But how can you ignore such a huge part of American history when telling a story in that time period? It made no sense.”
