This review is from: Django Newly Re-mastered in HD ALL REGIONS [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
The recent theatrical release of Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained",
gave me the impulse to buy the original "Django" film.
I watched this on a 46" inch LCD screen, and I do not share the negative
experience reported by other reviewers.
I think that the image was sharp, but not sparkling.
But this may have to do with the chosen color palette of the film.
Similarities with Tarantino's film start with the name of the anti-hero,
and end with the haunting theme song.
This Django is not a redeemer. He is a grim, mirthless cynical man.
There's a comic book quality in much of the film:
In its drab, yellowish grey world little color stands out:
The blazing blue eyes of Django, the red scarves and hoods of the
white supremacists, the peacock colors of the whores, and the red of blood.
Luis Bacalov's music is effective, but it doesn't drive the plot-
in the way Ennio Morricone's music does for Sergio Leone's spaghetti westerns.
Please note that there are no English SDH in the interview with Franco Nero
and the Alex Cox presentation of the film.
