Re: Django Unchained--Tarintino's new project
People talk about his films, sure, but I don't think he would be considered "controversial"; maybe circa Reservoir Dogs, but his style has become thoroughly mainstream by now. He directed an episode of CSI, for Christ's sake.
I tend to agree with you (even though I posted the Elba link). I would have thought someone like Lars Von Trier is more controversial these days.
