I think people enjoy attacking it as well of defending it. I am an artist not a historian. I know Tarantino is dealing as much with the history of film as with a period in American history. To put Tarantino in a box and say he has to strictly adhere to history is to take the art away from film. Regardless, a movie two hours in length will not satisfy history, ever! I agree Eric, it has spurred many great reactions and it's interesting to note when they are on point or not.

Totally agree. The film is a work of fiction, purposefully absurd and anachronistic. Trying to hold it up to history is ridiculous. Saying there was no black resistance in the film is equally comedic as Candyland is ultimately blown to smithereens.
And Tarantino as a racist??? Oy veh.
