New Image of Leonardo DiCaprio in Django Unchained

Django UnchainedBecause  Quentin Tarantino can literally get any film he writes made, you know he will take advantage of this power and create something like you have never seen before. That’s why you should be looking forward to Django Unchained.


After all, all his films are grounded in originality. It’s what makes Tarantino great. Like Woody Allen or Wes Anderson, or Jonathan Demme, you can watch one scene and guess who the director is.  With Allen it’s the prose and natural intellectual dialogue, filled with comedic and tragic neurosis. Anderson’s films have that look of a picture book from childhood, and yet they feel so human. And Jonathan Demme has mastered the look-in-lens camera angle that made Hannibal Lector and Tom Hank’s Andrew Beckett so tangible. It’s like the characters in Demme’s films are talking directly at you. With Tarentino, it’s the patience of his dialog. He is one of the few writer directors in history that can make a five minute conversation or three minute monologue the most exciting thing in his movie. It’s like the action is secondary in his films. That is a truly unique gift be possess. Hell, it’s why Christoph Waltz won the Oscar. His monologue at the dairy farm at the beginning of Inglourious Basterds was legendary, bone chilling and fantastic. Acting students from around the world  will memorize those lines for the rest of time. The tension he creates with simple dialogue is extraordinary.  No one can do that like Quentin Tarantino.


Hopefully we get a few new original monologues from Django Unchained. But come on, who are we kidding? This is Tarantino. I believe he will give us something great here. I can’t wait to see this film.


Official Django Unchained Synopsis

Set in the South two years before the Civil War, “Django Unchained” stars Academy Award®-winner Jamie Foxx as Django, a slave whose brutal history with his former owners lands him face-to-face with German-born bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Academy Award®-winner Christoph Waltz). Schultz is on the trail of the murderous Brittle brothers, and only Django can lead him to his bounty. The unorthodox Schultz acquires Django with a promise to free him upon the capture of the Brittles – dead or alive.

Success leads Schultz to free Django, though the two men choose not to go their separate ways. Instead, Schultz seeks out the South’s most wanted criminals with Django by his side. Honing vital hunting skills, Django remains focused on one goal: finding and rescuing Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), the wife he lost to the slave trade long ago.

Django and Schultz’s search ultimately leads them to Calvin Candie (Academy Award®-nominee Leonardo DiCaprio), the proprietor of “Candyland,” an infamous plantation where slaves are groomed by trainer Ace Woody (Kurt Russell) to battle each other for sport. Exploring the compound under false pretenses, Django and Schultz arouse the suspicion of Stephen (Academy Award®-nominee Samuel L. Jackson), Candie’s trusted house slave. Their moves are marked, and a treacherous organization closes in on them. If Django and Schultz are to escape with Broomhilda, they must choose between independence and solidarity, between sacrifice and survival…
