Instead of the Nazis winning World War II in the final version, a different ending gave them their just deserts.

The film Inglourious Basterds shows the director’s love for movies and movie theaters by opening with a classic Western-style score and inserting film footage of key locations, including a theater. The characters are savage fighters dropping behind Nazi lines to represent the Dirty Dozen, with further nods to cinema throughout.

It’s easy to put anyone into a box and label them, which is what Tarantino has done with his characters. From the very beginning, the film’s major protagonists have represented the Good vs. the Bad, the True vs. the Fake, the System vs. Chaos – all named after some popular pop vernacular like “Hero”, “Nazi”, and “Girl.” Many of these characters are funny and drawn broadly but with love to really make it seem as if they feel bigger than any fictional character you’ve seen before.

You can’t deny that Jack Vettriano has inspired a lot of work in the field of painting. The artist specializes in creating dark, noir-themed paintings featuring women who are smoking cigarettes.

After Shosanna persuades a German film maker and Nazi war hero, Joseph Goebbels, to hold the movie premier of his new World War 2 war film in her theater, Tarantino begins filming a documentary with many rule disregarded battles.

With no definite theme, Inglorious Basterds is like no other movie. It doesn’t care if the film is boring or not— in fact there are parts of it that might actually be over-the-top entertaining and a little confusing for viewers.

After attending a screening of “Inglourious Basterds” at Cannes Film Festival, I waited to give my opinions. Being an avid film critic, I knew Tarantino had made a significant film, but I wanted it to settle into its place in the cinema and then see it again. It was worth the wait.

Immediately after Tarantino screened “Pulp Fiction” at Cannes, QT asked me what I thought. “It’s either the best movie of the year or the worst movie,” I said. I hardly knew what the hell had happened to me.

People don’t just like Tarantino films, it’s not enough to see them once.

“Inglourious Basterds” is the best Tarantino film. Hell, it’s one of the best films of the century. The cast is superb: Laurent, Kruger, Fassbender, Waltz, (Eli) Roth, and Pitt as the infinitely memorable Lt. Aldo Raine in all of his forehead carving and schlocky Italian.
