With that being said, seeing the story unfold and seeing him take the stage again was incredibly uplifting. He just seems like he is the coolest fucking guy in the world and all the attention that this documentary bring him is incredibly justified. I urge all of you to not only watch Searching For Sugar Man, but to also listen to both of Rodriguez' albums, because he is a talent that should not go unknown and it is story that should not go untold.
    My bf and I were both enthralled with the ending. Thanks for the recommendation!

    Also, the fact that none of you douchebags put Kill Bill 1 up there is horrible. That movie was fucking brilliant.
    Had I had listed a top five, Kill Bill would have been right behind django at number 5.

    I also really like death proof so that'd be my honorable mention.

    The last bit in Death Proof is wonderful. It's the rest of the movie with the bloated coked out Tarantino dialogue that made it hard to watch, which also made it hard to enjoy Inglourious Basterds. I assume Django is more of the same.

    But for me, it was a just a pothead making an exploitation shoot-em-up spaghetti western about the darkest stain on our nation's history. Rather than being offensive, it was silly.
    So you think it trivialized the plight of the slaves? Or you just don't think that a movie should be allowed to have both slavery and humor?

    Essentially, yes. I'm not concern trolling Django like a lot of people on the right have been doing, but at the end of the day, this was the American holocaust. It trivializes the historical horror of the event by turning it into a Sergio Leone-meets-Shaft flick. I realize QT skated around similar issues in his last movie, but even there he didn't go so far as to set it in fucking Auschwitz or something.

    This movie didn't make me as angry about everything as it clearly did you. But I also don't see all the hype. I thought Hurt Locker was much better, Zero really did NOTHING with the characters, which always bothers me. I only really enjoyed the last 10 minutes.

    So the South is Auschwitz?

    No, it's okay, Mirior, I get it. Nazis are funny but slave masters aren't. Because Jews are kinda white so your guilt doesn't kick in.

    It's not a documentary. It creates a black hero out if it. It talks about a sore subject in a pomo way.

    Actually, i hated it not for the depiction of violence, how long it was, or the use of the n-word. I just thought it was a shit movie, with no substance.

    Candyland, not the whole South.

    Look I didn't feel great about Basterds, either. I'm only drawing a distinction to point out that Django goes much further than Basterds did in turning the particulars of an awful historical event into fodder for a revenge flick. I mean, no one in that movie throws a can of Zyklon B at a Nazi or conducts medical experiments as part of an elaborate revenge fantasy.

    I thought I was very well made. The Master was better. Haven't see Zero Dark yet. More than a speghetti western to say the least.

    Its like everyone talking shit on cloud atlas. Ok sure it wasn't great, but to put something like that together is a major fucking accomplishment.

    Ive tried to write a screenplay and make a film before. Even short, one camera, three actor films are hard to make somewhat not completely shitty.

    I mean I don't care if you didn't like the film or not we all have our own taste but it was very good filmmaking and writing and acting and everything.

    I don't recall Candyland being particularly funny so I don't see how it was treating it trivially. I think slave traders getting shot is fucking hilarious. I would watch a loop of racist assholes being murdered in hilarious fashions all day long if there was a channel for it. And I think your primary problem with both those movies is that you don't know any Jews and you don't know any blacks either.

    Yet this was the movies charm whether you liked it or not. The foreign press obviously liked it very much

    Well, sure, Vigo. But at a certain level, you expect the formalistic aspects of quality cinema to be competent if not excellent. That's why I'm moving on to ideology; my point isn't that QT shoots his films poorly or that Jamie Foxx couldn't carry his role.

    Something can be trivialized even if it's not being played for yuks, Randy.

    So you found it historically degrading and wish someone would make the Schindlers List of American slavery? Understandable, but Django simply isn't that film nor is QT that kind of filmmaker.

    I don't think we need a Schindler's List of American slavery. And I'm not asking Tarantino to make a different kind of film to satisfy me. I am pointing out what I found troublesome about the film that he did make. That is all.

    It's probably futile to argue this, but one man's exploitation is another man's empowerment. If you believe Tarantino's only reasons for making Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained are to pad his bank account and glorify himself - which would require you to ignore the fact that he put his own salary on the line in order to get the latter made, among other things - then you'll be prone to believe that he's trivializing atrocity. If you understand that a fundamental motivation for exploitation cinema/cinema in general/art in general is to give voice to those who don't always have one in reality, you'll understand that while the film may be a humorous fantasy, it's not for lack of respect to the severity of history. The fantasy kills are presented as ultra-graphic and stylized and often hilarious, but the violence that mirrors actual slave practices is the opposite.

    Personally, I wouldn't rank Django or Basterds higher than his top/first four (and I will always count Kill Bill as a single work, though I do find the second half slightly more glorious than the first). But if those two are #5 and 6, that's a quality fucking filmography.

    In particular I would like to hear how Django is offensive and Blazing Saddles is not.

    And neither are.
