Quentin Tarantino is one of the most beloved directors of our time. There is always great fuzz around his movies and once there are rumors of a new film, fans lose their mind over excitement for it. From the Reservoir dogs to Pulp Fiction he has been awarded Oscars and many other awards for filmmaking. This is well earned by the director who celebrates his success to accurate and incredibly influential filmmaking. His films have a characteristic that they are often presented in chapters which aren‘t necessarily in the right order. He jumps from one scene to another. Another characteristic is the character making, there are without exception characters that are loved by the viewer. And the actors often get rewarded for their presentations of those characters. The latest one being Cristoph Waltz both for his interpretation of the SS-front man Col. Hans Landa in Inglorious Bastards, and his lovable but firm character Dr. King Schultz in Django Unchained.
With those two films being Tarantino‘s latest he has announced that he will complete a trilogy of projects involving history recreation with humorous overtones. That makes the classic Tarantino fan very excited. His idea of a special troop made by American Jews tearing German high up commanders apart is a very fresh and entertaining way of making a war film. That fresh, new, humorous way of looking at the war is the reason for the film’s success. And also in that film, just as the next Tarantino film, we get great character making and great acting to back those characters up. Mostly it‘s the new perspective of history which is exactly what the audience wanted.
Tarantino‘s latest project, Django Unchained, was a huge success. He presents the time of slavery in America fantastically through the eyes of one slave who is going to save his wife from slavery. The brilliant characters are fantastically interpreted by the great collection of actors in the film. That says it all about Django‘s acting. The story is all the better. It‘s about a young handsome black slave who the viewer is made to love for his straightforwardness. He is fighting for such a noble cause against so much evil that you sympathize greatly with him. The love of his life is sent away from him by cruel owners and is now working at a big plantation called Candyland. Candyland is owned by a cruel, rich gentleman who is big in the Mandingo fighting sport. Mandingo fighting is two slaves fighting to the death. And then there is the dentist and bounty hunter so brilliantly interpreted by Christoph Waltz. He truly makes the journey entertaining.
I think I can speak for all Tarantino fans when I say that I‘m already waiting for the next film about some historical event. It is guaranteed that there will be great character making and acting and as always we expect the storyline to be exciting and fresh. With Tarantino‘s record he might be becoming one of the most cult directors of our time. I can see that in the future he will be presented as a breakthrough director in the film industry with his brutal fighting scenes involved with all the humor. And the fact the each film he makes seems to be better than the one before is incredible. How long he can last with this standard is yet to find out but I for one will enjoy the ride.
