Critics reviews

Tarantino has moved, in the space of about thirty seconds, from being a devil-may-care prankster to an adolescent moralist. . . . Watching this film in close proximity to Lars von Trier’s Antichrist (2009), I had a certain revelation that sadism in cinema, the sadism of physical violence, is back – back with (as they say) a vengeance.

You can take PULP FICTION and KILL BILL, but please leave Christoph Waltz talking to the French dairy farmer, the guessing games at La Louisiane, Daniel Brühl’s awkward courtship of Mélanie Laurent. That is, leave INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS. It’s juvenile, wrongheaded, self-aggrandizing, stupid, completely spot-on, probably Quentin Tarantino’s masterpiece, maybe the only moral film anyone has made about “the war” since THE BIG RED ONE.
