  • Jamie Foxx and Leonardo DiCaprio in Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained
Quentin Tarantino has two projects coming this fall. Musician and producer RZA makes his film-directing debut with the Russell Crowe actioner The Man With the Iron Fists, opening November 2; Tarantino produced a script by Hostel mastermind Eli Roth. Then on Christmas Day, Tarantino unveils his own Django Unchained, in which a freed slave (Jamie Foxx) sets out to rescue his wife (Kerry Washington) from a southern plantation owner (Leonardo DiCaprio). Inspired by the 1966 spaghetti western Django, the movie promises to be another social hand grenade along the lines of Inglourious Basterds.

If you feel the need to brush up on your Tarantino, take note of Sandy Fries's course on the filmmaker, which kicks off Tuesday, September 11, at College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn and continues weekly through early December. "In the film classes I teach he’s the filmmaker who gets the most visceral positive response from my students," writes Fries. "They like Kubrick, they like Scorsese, but they go nuts about Tarantino." Films to be screened and discussed include Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, and Kill Bill.
