German bounty hunter frees a black slave to show him the trade of being a manhunter and to help him find his missing wife. More fulfilling then Inglorius Basterds but takes it's time just the same.

A Mash of German Legend, Spaghetti Westerns, Modern Music, Samurai Flicks and Historical References.
When I saw Quentin Tarantino’s cameo appearance in Takashi Miike’s “Sukiyaki Western Django” (please see the original uncut of Miike’s movie before you judge it), I had a small hunch that the acclaimed director was about to go into something with the ‘western’ flavor (or so he states ‘southern’), and guess what, I wasn‘t far from wrong.

A German Bounty Hunter/Dentist played by Christopher Waltz (who we last saw in Inglorious Basterds) tries to buy Django (Jamie Foxx) from a slaver. The reason?

Django broke free of those chains, if only Tarantino could get back on his though.
