It seems that anybody who ever works with director Quentin Tarantino is always full of praise for him and Leonardo DiCaprio is no different. Leonardo appears in the Quentin Tarantino movie Django Unchained and he has admitted that he is a huge fan of the director.
During a recent interview with Flicks and Bits, DiCaprio explained, “I love how he breaks all the rules. You can just imagine him as that clerk in the video store watching pulp films over and over again, saying, ‘Someday, I’m going to do an amalgamation of all these things that I love.’ And Quentin Tarantino, if anyone tried to duplicate what he does, I think they would be sued for copyright infringement, because he’s so got his own specific style (laughs).”
He added, “When you see a Tarantino movie, you know you’re going to be incredibly entertained and there’s going to be things and elements that not only character wise and story wise, but music wise, that are going to be completely shocking. It will take you a second to adjust to, but like in this film, bringing hip-hop into a pre-Civil War period piece, it’s so audacious but it works. He’s amazing.”
As well as Leonardo DiCaprio, Django Unchained also stars Jamie Foxx, Samuel L Jackson and Kerry Washington and was released in the US on Christmas Day, before then being released in the UK on January 18, 2013.
