Box Office
James Rocchi quote iconJust in time to add gore and thunder to the end-of-year march of bloodless, whimpering, would-be Oscar contenders, Django Unchained, writer-director Quentin Tarantino's latest film, is in many ways also his best film, combining his maniacal style of mashed-up fragments from the cultural canon with a seriousness of intent that turns Django into a discussion of both pop and politics.
20
Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconWhat Tarantino has is an appreciation for gut-level exploitation film appeal, combined with an artist's desire to transform that gut element with something higher, better, more daring.

Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconIs Django Unchained too much? Damn straight. It wouldn't be Tarantino otherwise.
