Review: Django Unchained Is a Love Story That Ranks Among Tarantino’s Best

•, By Angela Watercutter

In the two decades that Tarantino has been making films, he’s had Mexican stand-offs, slick-talking gangsters, revenge plots and ultra-violence in spades. But with the possible exception of True Romance, love stories have never really been Tarantino’s thing. With Django Unchained, though, he has all the stand-offs and revenge you’ve come to expect, but still manages to turn the story into a romantic tear-jerker. Who knew he had it in him?

But let’s back up. The R-rated Django Unchained, which opens Tuesday, is still a tried-and-true Tarantino flick. Set in the South in the 1850s, the director’s version of a Spaghetti Western opens with Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz, who is clearly looking to one-up his Oscar-winning performance in Inglourious Basterds) bloodily “negotiating” the purchase of a slave named Django (fellow Oscar winner Jamie Foxx) from a pair of bumbling traders because the young man can help him find a trio of brothers with bounties on their heads.
