Quentin Tarantino's film, Django Unchained has as much to do with the history and culture of American descendants of African slaves as Dumbo has to do with the plight of Weimar Jewry.

Quentin Tarantino is one of the rare directors whose work is identifiable without his name attached, whether it's his flair for dialogue, his inspired use of music, his love for film and its genres, or his passion for blood-splattering violence. All of these are on display in his latest film, Django Unchained.

I didn't need to see Jewish people tortured in Inglorious Basterds to know I wanted the Nazis to pay. Tarantino seemed to know that too, so we didn't see any Jewish characters tortured. So why in Django Unchained did Tarantino depict black men being tortured in such graphic, gory, and yes, gratuitous ways?
