I have not yet seen the movie. However having seen other Tarantino films - he strives for a realism that you won't find in most other productions. I think that bothers a lot of people. But here's the thing, if a movie doesn't get your heart racing, get you thinking, nothing was really accomplished. Tarantino knows this. Hence the popularity of his films.
I have walked out of every Quentin Tarentino movie when I counted the N word ten times in each with the exception of Jackie Brown. The word makes me cringe. I do like the premise of the movie and was leaning towards not seeing it after hearing the N word was used over a hundred times, however I respect Michael Eric Dyson. Having read all of his books, and having head and seen him speak on may occasions, I have not disagreed with anything he has ever said on any subject, and if he thinks the movie is a must-see, then I think I will see it this weekend.
I just watched Red Hook Summer, Spike's lastest film. And nigger is used a bit in that movie as well by characters. I'm also pretty positive that the word is used in many of his other movies. (Spike's) So is the problem really that the n-word is used or that a white guy is using the n-word. If that's the case then Spike is a hypocrite.
This is an excellent movie!!! It is absolutely a classic!!!
