Aro Recommended Inglourious Basterds


aka: Inglorious Bastards
USA 2009, 153 minutes
Dir. Quentin Tarantino
Genres: Action/Adventure / War

Topics: Gung-ho.


Aroview: A cocky, revisionist war epic channeling spaghetti westerns and the Dirty Dozen, Quentin Tarantino’s long-time pet project is perhaps his most restrained yet, charting a renegade Jewish-American resistance hellbent on murdering and disfiguring Nazi war criminals.

Alternating between Brad Pitt’s Nazi-hunting green berets and a Jewish cinema owner (Laurent) plotting to blow up her theatre with Hitler inside, the film’s concept is nothing if not mischievous fun, further inflated by at least one flamboyant, eye-catching performance. Although exceptionally talky and overlong, Tarantino’s self-indulgences are also for once kept on the down-low, with cinema references tied distinctively to German propaganda film and Weimar-era expressionism – all set amongst lavishly art directed surroundings.
