Once Upon A Time In Nazi Occupied France...
|Brad Pitt takes no prisoners in Quentin Tarantino's high-octane WWII revenge fantasy Inglourious Basterds. As war rages in Europe, a Nazi-scalping squad of American soldiers, known to their enemy as "The Basterds," is on a daring mission to take down the leaders of the Third Reich.|
"Basterds isn't so revolutionary or so finely crafted as Pulp Fiction was, but it crackles with the same energy and imagination and chutzpah. Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
"...fans think they're in for a Hollywood-style war movie starring Brad Pitt. What they're really getting is the cagiest, craziest, grandest European film of the year. Richard Corliss, Time Magazine
Editor's NoteA group of hardened Nazi killers stalk their prey in Nazi-occupied France as a Jewish cinema owner plots to take down top-ranking SS officers during the official premiere of a high-profile German propaganda film. As far as Lt. Aldo Raine -- aka "Aldo the Apache" (Brad Pitt) -- is concerned, the only good Nazi is a dead Nazi. Raine's mission is to strike fear into the heart of Adolf Hitler by brutally murdering as many goose-steppers as possible, or die trying. In order to accomplish that goal, Lt. Raine recruits a ruthless team of cold-blooded killers known as "The Basterds" which includes baseball-bat-wielding Bostonian Sgt. Donnie Donowitz (aka "The Bear Jew," Eli Roth) and steely psychopath Sgt. Hugo Stiglitz (Til Schweiger), among others. When the Basterds' secret rendezvous with turncoat German actress Bridget von Hammersmark (Diane Kruger) goes awry, they learn that the Nazis will be staging the French premiere of "The Nation's Pride," a rousing propaganda film based on the exploits of German hero Fredrick Zoller (Daniel Brühl), at a modest theater owned by Jewish cinephile Shoshanna Dreyfus (Mélanie Laurent), posing as a Gentile after the brutal murder of her family by the ruthless Col. Hans Landa (Christoph Waltz). As the Basterds hatch an explosive plan to take out as many Nazis as possible at the premiere, they remain completely oblivious to the fact that Shoshanna, too, longs to bring the Third Reich to its knees, and that she's willing to sacrifice her beloved theater in the process.

|Movies rewrite history all the time, but it takes a particular kind of chutzpah to do what Quentin Tarantino has done with his fascinating, frustrating masterpiece Inglourious Basterds (purposefully spelled wrong, for added cool cred). Interweaving several stories, including a plot to kill Hitler, the man responsible for Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown has created his own, wholly unique view of WWII, casting aside well-established historical facts, along with genre rules and narrative conventions. Many may be anticipating a hyper-violent, post-modern Dirty Dozen. Instead, we get an insane destruction of the war film itself....read the full review|
