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.
