SUNDAY, INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS
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.
