Django Unchained Review - Alternative Magazine Online

It speaks volumes that the film’s most accomplished and taut scene takes place around a dinner table. Like Inglourious Basterds’ bar scene, Tarantino creates unbearable tension as much with what isn’t said as with what is. The pieces start to fall slowly into place and you know it isn’t going to end pretty. Jamie Foxx does a decent job but he is certainly no Clint Eastwood – he looks the part but he never truly embodies the role. Luckily, his isn’t the most important character despite the film’s title – his long silences facilitate career-best performances from the supporting cast. With a soundtrack that includes some bold contemporary choices that nonetheless always marry the onscreen action perfectly, Django Unchained is a three-hour movie that plays out in the space of an exhilarated heartbeat. It’s not quite the film Inglourious Basterds was before it – and it can be rather uneven at times – but Tarantino fans will lap it up. (Cinema, Django Unchained) 8/10
