Review by Brother Reed

Can a movie change the world? Quentin Tarantino says “yes” with Inglourious Basterds, a triumphant piece of pure, grade-A cinema. This latest achievement is pumped full of thrills, uneasy chuckles and agonizing suspense. Literate, brazen and unconventional, it’s the film Tarantino has been working on for the better part of a decade and the wait has paid off. Like all his movies, Basterds is – at least in part – about film itself, as the writer/director is notorious for homages to his favorite genres. To say too much would be to ruin the story for those who haven’t heard, but suffice to say that one movie quite literally alters the course of history. READ FULL REVIEW
