Now that Quentin Tarantino’s epic slavery western has been out for a week you’ve probably not only seen a couple of times — for an R-rated western it’s doing surprisingly well — but you’re also probably giving the soundtrack a spin. And now, you can enjoy the soundtrack complete with a track-by-track commentary by Tarantino himself.
It’s no secret that Tarantino doesn’t treat the musical component of his films lightly and it’s great to hear the director talk in-depth about his musical choices as well as some of his favorite music moments of the film, with one of them being the use of Luis Bacalov’s “La Corsa (2nd Version)” (from Sergio Corbucci's original "Django") during Django’s stand-off with the overseers.
Running at nearly an hour and a half you can either stream the special or download it from iTunes. Listen to the soundtrack commentary below and check out “Django Unchained” in theaters now. And if you want to dive in even deeper, check out our breakdown of where all the songs from the soundtrack come from and the complete list of every song in the movie. [JoBlo via The Hollywood News]
