Unchained just looks really flat and washed, with the edges almost constantly out of focus.

However it looks Tarantino wanted it that way. Probably to emulate the look of the exploitation flicks of the 70s he rabidly devoured.

Shouldn't the film have had washed colours and heavy grain then? That is what I associate with B-Spaghetti Westerns, not blurred edges and a lack of depth.

Shaft type movies, not spaghetti westerns.

So he wanted to make a Spaghetti Western that looked like a piece of cheap blaxploitation? I don't get it... Well I do get it, but I don't like it.

Well, to be fair, Django Unchained is essentially a love letter to spaghetti westerns and blaxploitation. But I don't think there's anything wrong with the image at all. It looks very crisp and detailed to me, with gorgeous colors and a nice tight grain field.
