“Inglourious Basterds”: A Review

inglourious_basterds_422‘History will not repeat itself for Quentin Tarantino,’ says the Hollywood Reporter. ‘While his 
”Pulp Fiction” arrived late at the Festival de Cannes and swept away the
 Palme d’Or in 1994, his World War II action movie “Inglourious Basterds”
 merely continues the string of disappointments in this year’s Competition. The
 film is by no means terrible — its running time of two hours and 32 minutes 
races by — but those things we think of as being Tarantino-esque, the long
 stretches of wickedly funny dialogue, the humor in the violence, and outsized 
characters strutting across the screen, are largely missing.’
