If there’s any American story that deserves telling more, and is explored less, than slavery, I don’t know it.
It’s still a raw, hot topic and filmmakers, like many other segments of the population, aren’t willing to touch it.
And along came Quentin Tarantino and Jamie Foxx. Tarantino aims to give a story of slavery the Inglorious Basterds treatment.
That means lots of gore and unabashed vengeance.
The story follows Django, a slave acquired by a bounty hunter. Together they crisscross the South, killing people. One does it for money, the other for vengeance. The movie opens Christmas Day.
