Django Unchained star Jamie Foxx speaks out in defense of the acclaimed filmmaker and his treatment of the sensitive slavery subject matter.
The Oscar-winning actor told the Los Angeles Times, ‘Quentin has an affinity for writing horrible things and then making you laugh.
‘He’s making entertainment. Hopefully, it makes you go ask questions and you Google it.’
Emphasising the film’s fictional genre, Foxx made it clear that the movie’s ultimate goal was not to be a history lesson for the audience:
‘If you want to learn something from a movie, go watch a documentary.’
