Movie Clippings: ‘Django’ an unsettling experience for many blacks – latimes.com


Clipped from ‘Django’ an unsettling experience for many blacks | latimes.com

Tracey White’s initial impression of “Django Unchained,” Quentin Tarantino‘s new slave-era shoot-’em-up extravaganza, could be summed up in three words: smart, funny and ugly. Sitting through a recent screening in Beverly Hills, the L.A. costume designer was mostly absorbed and found herself laughing aloud at particularly outrageous moments.

But White, who is black, said her feelings evolved significantly. Two days after reflecting on the matter of slavery and Tarantino’s treatment, she pronounced the movie mostly ugly.

“He [Tarantino] gets a good product out of it in terms of wit and a visual look,” said White. “But when it was over I found myself wondering, ‘What is he trying to do?’ I enjoyed the movie when I was in there, but I still have a problem with Tarantino when he deals with our race.”
