"Django Unchained": un réservoir d'émotions postmodernes

Published in Nouvel observateur. 2013, N.p.
Abstract The filmic style of Quentin Tarantino is a dazzling example a postmodern aesthetics full of allusions to the western and spaghetti western genres, and to some TV series in the 1950's and 1960's. The popular culture in film, video, TV, and music of Tarantino is breath-taking, as the rhythm of action in his last movie, Django unchained (2012). Love, hatred, revenge, humor, cunning, cruelty, passions and blood, and stereotyped characters: spectators are bombarded with emotions that vanish quickly in this sparkling fiction telling the story of the slave Django two years before the Secession war in the USA.
