I could tell you that Quentin Tarantino is a provocateur, but you already know that. I could tell you that he uses the "n" word too liberally and with a little too much zest, you know that too. I could tell you his latest film "Django Unchained" is causing controversy for those reasons, once again, you probably know this. I could go through all the reasons some of the choices he makes are wrong, or morally, socially, and historically reprehensible but then I'd be telling you something you already believe, or that you don't believe at all.
This was a great show. I got to interview Dayton Duncan of Florentine Films, Ken Burns' production company. Mr. Duncan and Ken Burns have collaborated on many films, their newest, The Dust Bowl premiered on PBS November 17th and 18th. We also heard from Daniel Fluitt of the The Thrift Store Cowboys, a wonderful West Texas band that you can find on Spotify or iTunes.
This is the first in an ongoing series of movie reviews from my child hood. If it makes you feel old to know that I'm 29 then I am sorry. If you have any films that you think would fit here write me and let me know at email@example.com and remember to tune in to 24 Frames every Thursday at 8pm on Channel 5.
