Spike Lee’s Dissing of ‘Django Unchained’ Earns Both Ire and Indifference

This is the one film I got to see over the holidays. It is very much a blaxploitation film – a black story told by white people. That said, I loved it, and the interesting difference from historical blaxploitation is that the audience is mixed. Given America’s problem talking about slavery openly, that could be significant.
