Today we’re running five essays on Tarantino’s latest film, Django Unchained. The intention of running so many was not to give Django a disproportionate amount of coverage, but to reflect the controversy and conversation the film has sparked: I’ve overheard 80-year-old men in Speedos talking about it at my swim club, and a thread on my own Facebook page got so heated that I almost quit social media entirely. The scope of these essays spans love, hate, and ambivalence, and I hope they give a kaleidoscopic view of a film whose controversy exhibits just how much more thinking and talking and writing needs to be done.
