We in the killin' Nazi business. And cousin, Business is a-boomin'.
Yesterday Boyhalf and I took a little movie trip to see the new kickass Tarantino epic, Inglourious Basterds. I love Tarantino, as a previous student of film i have studied his work in some depth and have a greater appreciation for it but even when i first saw Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs i knew i was seeing something special. I really believe this movie could be the new cult film in five or ten years. I also studied History for a year, focusing on Hitler's rise to power so this film was right up my alley (just don't expect it to be what you read in the books).
Everything about this movie works, i already previously blogged about my anticipation of the outfits and they didn't dissapoint, especially Julie Dreyfuss' as Francesca Mondino, Goebbels' interpretor, that leopard print hat and shawl were total winners as were both Von Hammersmark and Shosanna's outfits at the Premiere in the movie. I was totally swept up in it.
I think it's a shame a lot of people have been bitching the movie out for being so dialogue heavy, guess some people just expected to see a gory war movie and not a Tarantino film. I love his attention to detail and the way he builds a scene up, the German three finger thing (if you see it you'll understand) was pure attention t detail and i wish they hadn't explained it as it was one of those things to make you think.
Oh and Eli Roth's Bear Jew wins everything. And Brad Pitt's accent.
