7MATE, 9PM ★★★★

The facts sur­round­ing the Ger­man oc­cu­pa­tion of France dur­ing World War II get pulped into fic­tion by mav­er­ick film­maker Quentin Tarantino. The story cen­tres on a team of Jewish-Amer­i­can com­man­dos who be­come in­volved in a bizarre at­tempt to as­sas­si­nate Hitler in a Paris cinema. Tarantino’s trade­marked, highly stylised use of blood, guts and vi­o­lence still burst to the fore on oc­ca­sion. How­ever, there is no es­cap­ing that In­glou­ri­ous Bas­terds prefers yakety- yak to all- out at­tack. This block­buster 150- minute pro­duc­tion is Tarantino just shy of his very best: ir­rev­er­ent, ir­ra­tional and ir­re­sistibly en­ter­tain­ing. Stars Brad Pitt, Christoph Waltz, Diane Kruger.
