Tarantino’s pseudo-western is a film brimming with so much confidence that it almost swaggers across the screen. Jamie Foxx turns in a good performance but Cristoph Waltz steals the whole picture from him. As much as he chilled you in “Inglorious Basterds”, he will charm you in Django. Add into the mix firing-on-all-cylinders performances by Leonardo DiCaprio and an actually-getting-to-act Samuel L Jackson and you have a heady cocktail of gory, occasionally cartoonish ultra violence and sly, laugh out loud comedy, including a whole sequence which could have been lifted straight from Mel Brooks’ “Blazing Saddles”.
Breezy, brutal, ballsy and brilliant!
