87% Django Unchained (2012) It is perhaps a weakness of Tarantino's film, though surely consistent with the spaghetti western genre, that a great gulf separates the good guys from the bad. No room is left for the ugly, the ambiguous, the in-between.‐ The New York Review of Books

96% 12 Years a Slave (2013) But the best sequences in 12 Years a Slave are not history lessons. They are, instead, visually ambiguous and open-ended, presumably owing something to McQueen's art-school background in Britain. . .‐ The New York Review of Books
