Review: Inglourious BasterdsAugust 24, 2009
Just a quick one – What an attention whore Tarantino is! Not content with making a ripping good (if a little overlong) WW2 picture, he’s gotta throw the historical revisionism in there!
I won’t say what that revisionism is, but in my heart I know it’s there because it wouldn’t be brilliant Tarantino if it hadn’t.
AND MORE (INVISO-TEXT): As to the “Jewish Revenge Fantasy” angle – how wouldn’t that work if the Basterds hadn’t killed Hitler, but some fictional Nazi group instead? It will be intersting if T. goes all in for the rest of his filmmaking career with his own mythology. Not that anybody hasn’t done so before, but this would be the first time for a major director to do so…
