Christoph Waltz On ‘Django Unchained’

Django Unchained proves that Christoph Waltz’s amazing performance as a Nazi in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds was no fluke. He is every bit as vivid, and sly in a completely different way, in Tarantino’s latest film about slavery, violence and pre-Civil War America. To say that Waltz plays Dr. King Schultz, a bounty hunter who buys and frees the slave played by Jamie Foxx, then helps him find his wife, doesn’t begin to hint at the way the character develops, or how Waltz, perfectly in sync with Tarantino once again, subtly makes his character a moral compass as well as a fast-shooting Western sidekick, sometimes funny and sometimes eloquent.
