The Django Tango is an animated dating scene set to the audio of Quentin Tarantino being interviewed by Channel 4’s Krishnan Guru-Murthy. The interview, broadcast ahead of the release of Django, gained widespread attention and notably provoked an uncharacteristically hostile reaction from Tarantino as he was questioned about his use of violence in his films. The ebb and flow of their conversation reminded me of a dance, one which is often carried out between the interviewer and interviewee. Tarantino’s vocals almost naturally seemed to assume the role of a cantankerous woman.
