Inglourious is Glorious

Inglourious Basterds is one of those films that comes along and makes you rethink modern cinema as we know it. It’s a safe bet you’ve never seen anything quite like it, taking references from so many areas in film. The writing of the film is very complex with amazing dialogue (and a stupefying performance by Christoph Waltz as the “Jew Hunter” Col. Hans Landa). Tarantino calls this his “Spaghetti Western” with “World War II iconography” paying homage to the “macaroni combat” sub-genre as well as French New Wave Cinema. Trying to wrap my head around that makes me dizzy, but nonetheless it’s a must see. Killing Nazis never gets old and the end theater scene is now up there as one of my favorite scenes of all time.
