And we have to say the movie Django is subversive. Django is a rebel. Django questions the system. Django has learned to think and examine his freedom. He has learned the ways of the established powers and of the law. Django stands as a man for freedom. Love is a subversive power in the movie Django. Django refused to be dehumanized. The value for family is a higher value than the value for the Establishment. Question Authority.
I saw the Movie Django. I liked it. It is really a love story, a story of American Slavery, and a story about the bounty hunter industry in the USA. Django and his wife are sold off in different directions by a cruel slaver. The smooth talking German man that buys him/releases him/uses him comes to see Django as a mythical figure Sigfied who will do anything and fight through anything to reach his Broomhilde. And it is Django's Quest that take them to the final Plantation and their most dangerous mission where the German man of the European Enlightenment dies.
I suppose it is also a story of man's inhumanity to man. The cruelty of Leonardo Dicaprio is so over the top and evil in it's intelligence. Django struggles to win his wife back, his love of his life. And just when it seems that he has won, the fatal flaw of the German friend comes out and Django loses everything again. But Django is a changed man. Django has become educated as well as dangerous. So Django finds a way to rise mythically out of the fires of hell and return to the plantation to mete out justice.
The Value for Family and for People are higher values than the value for the Establishment. This touches on Natural Rights. Rights from God or a Higher Power. The Laws of Men and Law-Makers are not always Just. History repeats this lesson Over and Over.
