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.”


INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS
2009, Swank, 153 min, Germany/USA, Dir: Quentin Tarantino

This WWII-set box office hit stars Brad Pitt as Lt. Aldo Raine, who leads the Basterds, a paramilitary squad that terrorizes the Nazis with quick strikes in enemy territory. The fighters team up with a French theater owner and devise a plot to kill Hitler at a screening of a new propaganda film. Christoph Waltz earned a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his turn as duplicitous SS officer Hans Landa. “Quentin Tarantino’s INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS is a big, bold, audacious war movie that will annoy some, startle others and demonstrate once again that he’s the real thing, a director of quixotic delights.” – Roger Ebert.


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.
