Django

I’m tempted to write about how important  Br’er Rabbit revenge fantasies and minstrel used by and for enslaved Southerners was to lightening the centuries long ton of a psychic mind fuk that slavery was and remains. How of course Django is incapable of doing for us what Spielberg did for his folks with Munich (his atonement for shufflin ass Schindler’s List), but I’d rather write and direct our Munich.

Criticism sharpens and clarifies and is absolutely necessary, but I have also known it to stand in the place of creative action on my part. So my thoroughly enjoying Django—-almost as much as I enjoyed Death Proof—-does not mean I don’t see what’s wrong with it, and that I’m not reading these thoughtful reads of it, it just means I’d like my protest to be my work, a dream I’ve too long deferred while I produced criticism.
