After the Newtown massacre, will moviegoers turn out for Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, essentially two hours and 45 minutes of continual gun violence?
Of course they will. What are you, crazy? Though if you look at the display ad for the movie in this week’s issue, you’ll see that the blood spray from the original poster art has been removed. That’s the kind of sensitivity I’ve come to expect from Tarantino and Columbia Pictures.
Also this week, we recommend Rust and Bone, the latest from French director Jacques Audiard (A Prophet), and Jean Gentil, about a Haitian teacher who travels to the Dominican Republic in search of work and winds up fending for himself in the wilderness.
