Do you know who Sergio Corbucci is?

I’ll be honest, a week ago I did not know.

After watching Django & Django: Sergio Corbucci Unchained (2022), I am glad to say I know the name.

Django & Django: Sergio Corbucci Unchained is a passion project of legendary American filmmaker Quentin Tarantino. He wanted to write a book about both Sergio Corbucci and Sergio Leone but fell back on a documentary format to illustrate the world of Spaghetti Westerns. And there is no better painted of a cinematic picture than Tarantino.

The two-time Oscar winner is the perfect narrator for this tapestry. Tarantino is educated on the subject, and it is obvious right from the get-go. Thankfully, his knowledge surrounding does not come off as someone who memorized a study guide. It does not sound like a play-by-play sports announcer reading off a card random stats to make themselves sound illuminated.

Tarantino speaks about Corbucci and Italian Spaghetti Westerns like a child speaking about the greatest movie they have just ever seen. Frankly, Tarantino sounds like I did in high school after I watched any movie that I thought reshaped the world around me. The only difference is that Tarantino is educated in every crevice of this genre and industry.

Django & Django: Sergio Corbucci Unchained is a documentary about a robust filmmaker made with immense love and affection. Quentin Tarantino is infectious with his energy when he is talking about Sergio Corbucci. His energy is magnetic when he connects the dots between the impact of Corbucci, the archetype Sergio Lione, and the emerging American fascination with westerns.

It doesn’t matter if you know nothing or everything that Tarantino or the interviewees are referencing. Coming out of this Django & Django: Sergio Corbucci Unchained, you’ll want to check out Italian spaghetti westerns and see with Corbucci was so profound at making.
