It's an absolutely brilliant film in that regard. Maybe Tarantino's best...
Politically though? Spike, for once, has a point.
Don't think so? Imagine he does the same Spaghetti Western with the Jewish holocaust as the backdrop.
Yea, good point Mic. Im still going back and forth on it. On one hand QT wants to just make a fun spaghetti western good time. Which is fine.......But on the other hand he makes it dark and gritty setting it in a controversial, ugly time period. I honestly did think he overused the N word.....but i guess hes trying to push buttons and remain true to the time period. Maybe he was deliberately trying to make the audience feel uncomfortable? It definitely made me squirm a few times.
