YET ANOTHER FUCKING MOVIE ABOUT THE FUCKING NAZIS!!!!!! | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

YET ANOTHER FUCKING MOVIE ABOUT THE FUCKING NAZIS!!!!!!

The Basterds, as Pitt’s gang refer to themselves, are introduced like vintage bad-ass cowboys despite the alarmingly incongruous Jewish looks. They ambush German patrols in forests, and proceed to scalp them in lurid close-up. Pitt’s leader revels in this comic and macabre campaign, toying with captives before carving swastikas into their foreheads. While German captives gabble for their lives, Pitt’s calm, Southern drawl is almost comically ruthless.

The fairytale tone of Tarantino’s picture is strikingly obvious from the opening line: “Once upon a time . . . in Nazi-occupied France”. The chief villain, a Gestapo officer charged with hunting down Jews, is as familiar and frightening as the Rat Catcher in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Christoph Waltz plays him with a fabulously silky menace, as he sniffs around the Paris cinema in which Joseph Goebbels is about to present his new propaganda masterpiece.
