Trailers from Hell: Brian Trenchard-Smith on Tarantino's Spaghetti Southern 'Django Unchained'

Bullets Don’t Argue! week kicks off at Trailers from Hell, with director Brian Trenchard-Smith introducing Quentin Tarantino’s Spaghetti Southern “Django Unchained,” which won the Oscars for Best Supporting Actor (Christoph Waltz) and Best Original Screenplay.

Tarantino continues his revisionist history of the
world with this kinetic revenge saga which is on track to become the
highest-grossing western ever made. While working on a book about Italian
director Sergio Corbucci (The Great Silence, Django), Tarantino was inspired to
embark on a spaghetti-western influenced project of his own, which he regarded
as more of a “southern”. His usual bravura cinematics and eclectic
musical choices are on display in abundance, resulting in one more operatic,
pop-culture infused instant classic.
