TheDailyBeast: Best Movies of 2012

2 of 12

10. ‘Django Unchained’

Quentin Tarantino has become a master of historical wish-fulfillment fantasies, and this time, it’s not the Nazis getting their comeuppance, but brutal, racist slave-owners in the antebellum South. A German bounty hunter by the name of Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz) recruits Django (Jamie Foxx), a slave, to help him find the Brittle Brothers and collect the large bounty on them. In return, Schultz agrees to assist Django in freeing his wife, Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), from the clutches of a vicious slavemaster, Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio), who gets his jollies hosting Mandingo fights. While it runs about 20 minutes too long, this spaghetti-western/black comedy is a splendidly acted, effortlessly cool barrel of laughs that warrants repeat viewings.
