Inglourious Basterds (2009) was described by its creator, Quentin Tarantino, as “a spaghetti western but with World War II iconography.” It is a fantasy about a group of Jewish American soldiers “The Basterds”) who travel around occupied France hunting down, killing, and scalping Nazis. The film opened to an enthusiastic box-office and mixed critical reviews.
After talking to friends who had seen the film, I decided not to view it. The violence level in this film is far beyond my tolerance. Instead, I will point you to some reviews around the web:
Roger Ebert (Chicago Sun Times)
Manohla Dargis (New York Times)
Kenneth Turan (Los Angeles Times)
