Even his other movies similarly might rub people the wrong way, but I never questioned that his intention was to do anything besides make an exhileratingly cool movie.
I'm not sure I felt Django was quite so innocent compared to the others. I don't know if I can really point my finger on it, but parts of it definitely felt more ill intentioned and hateful to me. Not that there's necessarily too much wrong with that, but I can definitely understand an actor being put off or worried by the content moreso than "but I'm supposed to be the star!".
Who is it hateful and ill mentioned towards? Slavery owners?
