Above, is one of my favorite scenes in the movie. In it, Django has just hunted down some of the men who had abused him and his wife when he used to be a slave, and he is having flashbacks before killing them. When I first saw this scene, the music really hit me right in the feels. It made me want to root for Django in his pursuit of Hildi. The song playing is "Freedom" by Anthony Hamilton and Elayna Boynton. The tambourine in the background is reminiscent of slave chains, and it really helps make the scene feel real. The song, combined with the cracking of the slave driver's whip, sucks the viewer in with its realism. This is an appeal to one's ethos, because the realism adds credibility. By doing so, it forces the viewer to become emotionally invested in the film. Giannetti also explains that music can suggest ethnicity, or different types of people (214). The slave chain-esque tambourine is a great example of this.
Now for how I rate this scene. I honestly have to give it three tickets. It does such a great job alongside Django's flashbacks, and his cries for "freedom," that it completely deserves it. In the context of the film, it really makes the viewer care about Django and Hildi's relationship.
Have a good one ladies and gents,
