(hbO, astro Ch 411 / hd Ch 431, 10pm) The inim­itable di­rec­tor Quentin Tarantino ( Pulp Fic­tion, In­glou­ri­ousbas­terds, Kill­bil­lVol1and2) shines in his yet an­other mas­ter­piece which was de­scribed by The­Guardian’s film critic Peter brad­shaw as “un­whole­some, de­plorable and de­li­cious as a for­bid­den cig­a­rette”. It is about freed slave django (Jamie Foxx) who, un­der the tute­lage of dr King Schultz, a Ger­man den­tist and bounty hunter, learns the traits of be­com­ing a bad-a$$ bounty hunter him­self. With Schultz’s help, django tracks down his wife broomhilda (Kerry Wash­ing­ton) who is still en­slaved to an un­scrupu­lous plan­ta­tion owner. The movie re­ceived five Os­car nom­i­na­tions, in­clud­ing best Pic­ture, Cine­matog­ra­phy, and best Sound edit­ing, and won for Orig­i­nal Screen­play and Sup­port­ing ac­tor.
