Sergio Corbucci’s ground-breaking DJANGO is one of the greatest and most influential Westerns ever.
Seminal, yet banned for decades, its aesthetics of visual cruelty transcended the genre and shaped today’s film-making language. Its major influence is declared by Quentin Tarantino - among many Hollywood directors - and seen in his all films .
Django, played by the legendary Franco Nero, is the mysterious lone gunslinger who, dragging a coffinbehind him, arrives in a bleak, mud-drenched town where he’ll face two ruthless gangs of sadistic killers.
Presented uncut, from new 4K-restored elements, this definitive version is pristinely faithful to the original filmmakers’ vision; as attested by RuggeroDeodato (of ‘Cannibal Holocaust’ fame) who shot several scenes of ‘DJANGO’ as the then-Assistant to Corbucci.
+ BONUS FEATURE: DJANGO & DJANGO80 min with QUENTIN TARANTINO
A riveting feature-length testimonial by Quentin Tarantino complements this edition: showing many clips, he explains how Sergio Corbucci’s ‘Django’ permeates his own films from ‘Reservoir Dogs’ to his resounding tribute ‘Django Unchained’.
And whimsically Tarantino tells how, in his ‘Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood’, his fictional actor, played by Leonardo DiCaprio,
ends up working for the real Sergio Corbucci.
