DJANGO UNCHAINED
2012, Swank, 165 min, USA, Dir: Quentin Tarantino

Set in the South two years before the Civil War, DJANGO UNCHAINED stars Jamie Foxx as Django, a slave whose brutal history with his former owners lands him face-to-face with German-born bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz). Schultz is on the trail of the murderous Brittle brothers, and only Django can lead him to his bounty. Schultz acquires Django with a promise to free him upon the capture of the Brittles, and though success leads Schultz to free Django, the two continue to work together. Through it all, Django remains focused on one goal: rescuing the wife (Kerry Washington) he lost to the slave trade – a quest that leads to Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio), the proprietor of the infamous plantation “Candyland.”


ONCE UPON A TIME IN… HOLLYWOOD
2019, Columbia Pictures, 161 min, USA/UK/China, Dir: Quentin Tarantino

Quentin Tarantino’s ONCE UPON A TIME IN… HOLLYWOOD visits 1969 Los Angeles, where everything is changing, as TV star Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his longtime stunt double, Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt), make their way around an industry they hardly recognize anymore. The ninth film from the writer-director features a large ensemble cast and multiple storylines in a tribute to the final moments of Hollywood’s golden age. With Margot Robbie. Nominated for 10 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor (DiCaprio), Best Supporting Actor (Pitt), Best Director, Best Original Screenplay (Tarantino), and Best Cinematography (Robert Richardson). “All the actors, in roles large and small, bring their A games to the film. Two hours and 40 minutes can feel long for some. I wouldn’t change a frame. … You can feel Tarantino’s mad love for movies in all their disreputable dazzle and subversive art in every shot.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone.


INCEPTION

Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio) is the absolute best in the dangerous art of extraction: stealing valuable secrets from deep within the subconscious during the dream state when the mind is at its most vulnerable. Cobb’s rare ability has made him a coveted player in this treacherous new world of corporate espionage, but it has also made him an international fugitive. Now Cobb is being offered one last job that could give him his life back if he and his team can accomplish the near-impossible - not to steal an idea but to plant one. It would be the perfect crime … but the team faces a dangerous enemy that seems to predict their every move. Christopher Nolan’s meticulously constructed sci-fi thriller won four Oscars and features an all-star cast including Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Ellen Page, Tom Hardy and Michael Caine.
