Our people's history was bad enough, Slavery doesn't need embellishing
And the bold is not a "source"

Also Mandingo fighting was used in the novel Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison

I'm not saying its a source ppl are acting giving QT too much credit on certain things in the movie.

He didnt think of all this on his own .
Much of of QTs work is based on borrowing and spinning

Alias what harm do you think the movie did

You think slave owners would draw the line at Mandingo Fighting? Like that would be taking things to far? Slaveowners?...

And IA Jones... during that scene u saw more of the owners than the men fighting and it was the most disgusting thing about it...their faces and reactions.

The film portrays a partisan named Rodolfo collaborating with the Nazis, contradicting Italian versions of the massacre, which record it as an unprovoked war crime.

"We had asked for a meeting with Spike Lee several times to discuss the inaccuracies and said we were willing to talk but we never heard back," Giovanni Cipollini, ANPI vice president, said.

"His film is made up of half truths which have nothing to do with what really happened - and to add insult to injury we have not even been invited to the premier."

The film is based on a book written by James McBride, the black American Second World War veteran. At the ceremony in Sant Anna on Tuesday he said: "I am sorry if I have offended the partisans.

"I am a historical writer and just wanted to give life to the victims. As a black American I have utmost respect for the partisans but I wanted to show that in war everything is possible.

"I want to stress that the book is fiction, I write historical novels not books on history."


______


So the writer wanted to show that in war, anything is possible, so he made up a plot point. Spike Lee adapted that into his film, regardless of it being accurate or not.

Sounds just like QT. In slavery, anything is possible.

I don't expect a QT movie to be accurate or authentic.
I don't expect movies in general to be such.
Hell not even novels are.

I understand that some ppl are uncomfortable with the movie and that's fine.


IA RT.
I understood its purpose .

We were these ppls work and plays things they did with us what they wanted.

That was the point of the fighters

I listened to the dick Gregory.  I really think some people will not understand what the hell Dick Gregory is saying and how it plays a part in history and how Quentin T presented his movie.  Black people are their own worse enemy. 
 
Spike is jealous based on the budget and buzz.  He can't criticize content if he did not read the script or see the movie.

He was indeed, a sidekick throughout 75% of this movie.

Ftr, I thought Django was a 7 out of 10 movie and I stated I didn't see why people thought it was a masterpiece. I didn't love it at all. Had plenty of problems with it.

But some of the things being said in this thread (and others) against it don't make much sense to me.
