Inglourious Basterds (2009)

USA/Germany 153m, Colour
Director: Quentin Tarantino; Cast: Brad Pitt, Christoph Waltz, Michael Fassbender, Eli Roth, Diane Krüger, Daniel Brühl, Til Schweiger, Mélanie Laurent

inglourious-basterdsTarantino’s spaghetti-western-inspired revisionist history of WWII is a bizarre and engaging tale which poses the question, would you have assassinated Hitler given the opportunity? Based on the outcome of Inglourious Basterds, there seems little doubt in Tarantino’s mind. While this film is sure to frustrate and perhaps enrage some viewers, for its brutal and unapologetic alternate reality, which features revenge as a central theme – it should leave most in utter disbelief at the events which are shocking, yet not out of the realm of reality (Klaus Ming January 2010).

    I saw this within the past couple of weeks as well. I liked it, especially Christoph Waltz. The main impression it left with me was wanting to see more films with Christoph Waltz.

    The Inglorious Bastards made by Enzo Castellari in 78 is really worth a look. Hidden in a sea of diffrent names, 4 that i can remember,genra marketing, and very low vhs release numbers for the last 20 years its finally around as a easy to find home release thanks to the mass appeal of the 2009 version. I picked up a bare bones copy of it for 12 bucks a few weeks back and i loved every second of it. It’s a shame that it was lost for so long. The box talk on the back tags it as the inspiration for the 09 version, but its so so much more than a footnote.
