Film Review: 'DJango Unchained'
Film Director Quentin
Tarantino wild wild west film ''Django Unchained'' depicts some surrealism-a grittty semblance of a historical time. Tarantino carefully fictionalizes the film using nonfiction connotations. Not the first to do so, but many entertainment artists don't even get close to telling history like history was and is. 'Django Unchained' is well cast. The stellar performance of Samuel L. Jackson's character reeks a stunning portrayal of the ugliness of internalized racism perpetuated by the superb characterization of Leonard DiCaprio's charismatically-sweet ignorant attitude. Both actors embody their roles exceptionally. When comparing and contrasting the film's themes and poignant scenes that hold this film together, most surmise that slavery is the major component, but the main themes of the film are power, honor, courage, heroism and slavery and ignorance are underlying themes that shape the tone and
setting of this film. And yes people really did act (Europeans)
and had to live (Blacks) like this pre and post civil war, yet it's Jaime
Foxx's character that is the major protagonist going up against all the
forces in this film. Great analogies are used as the film plays up some of
the ignorance of the time period, hence the hooded sheets scene of the
men on the horses getting together to raid, yet not a clue as to who or
what they're standing for or against-or the horrific scene where the
dogs decapitate a man as the onlookers foam and revel as if at sporting event and the most
profound play up of blatant ignorance is depicted in DiCaprio's self-proclamation of heroism in the infamous The Three Musketeers
novel, authored by Alexandre Dumas, a French-African man born to a black slave.
The film also contrasts well the major correlation of outside (field) working
slaves and the indoor (house) working slaves, thereby historically confirming the complete degradation and genocide of African-race people and their offspring. The subtle symbolism used in the film are small moments to behold as the director entwines clever nuances helping us to grasp the depth of this westernized film with valuable historical content.
I have a passion for creating, producing and writing. While I have been grooming myself for quite some time to write for print, television and multimedia industries, I did complete the Radio and Television Program at Long Beach City College and my Journalism program at UCLA Extension. I am journalist, producer, writer, property manager and teacher aide. For thrills, frills and fun, I mystery shop professionally for businesses, and Toastmasters, Inc. is a public speaking organization that I am a member of.
