Duration: 147 min
Featuring one of the most gripping opening scenes in recent memory and a breakout performance from Christoph Waltz as SS Colonel Hans ‘Jew Hunter’ Landa, Tarantino’s epic alternative history of the Second World War is bold, bloody and wildly entertaining. Set in Nazi-occupied France, the film tracks the converging fates of a marauding gang of American soldiers led by Lt. Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt), and Shosanna (Melanie Durant), a vengeful Jewish orphan living under an alias in Paris.
“Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds is a big, bold, audacious war movie that will annoy some, startle others and demonstrate once again that he’s the real thing, a director of quixotic delights.” – Roger Ebert
