This paper analyzes the Quentin Tarantino feature Django Unchained (2012) and treats it as the result of the evolution of the Western as an initial genre of American cinema. This “spaghetti Western,” which is ironic, full of famous quotes, and devoid of nostalgia, reflects a changing conceptualization of political correctness. The end of white man hegemony is realized in the film as a rejection of the usual ethical inversion in favor of the oppressed. The romantic project of educating one’s Other is completed, and the West can retreat. The struggle for suprem- acy unfolds again, but victory is meant for the hero whose name translates to“I awake” from the Romani language.
