After taking on the Nazis in Inglourious Basterds, director Quentin Tarantino set his sights on slavery in the South and came up with an exhilarating, appalling and incessantly entertaining spaghetti western-style movie. Although the film combi nes an intriguing story with dazzling dialogue, it’s the casting that stands out. Dr King Schultz (Christoph Waltz ),a German dentist turned bounty hunter, frees Django (Jamie Foxx, pictured), a slave who’s hellbent on rescuing his wife from the Mississippi plantation owned by the sadistic Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio). Sa muel L Jackson is outstanding as Candie’s house slave.
