Undoubtedly the best Quentin Tarantino film since ‘Pulp Fiction’. Tarantino has twisted the facts and made a gripping tale of Second World War with his own stamp of history. It begins with a chapter of German occupied France and mass murder of a young Shosanna’s Jewish family. She escaped to Paris and becomes a cinema operator. Parallel to her story runs story featuring syndicate of Jewish soldiers known to their enemies as ‘the basterds’. Both plots met compelling climax at cinema house where two plans are ticking to end war and the rule of The Third Reich. But here is a smart man who can turns the table. Could he or could he not!!!

Though having some fine performances including Brad Pitt and young Melanie Laurent, the man to watch here is awesome Christoph Waltz. As suave, sophisticated cold blooded SS Colonel Hans Landa he’s absolutely brilliant here ends as the last year’s best villain. Surely deserves Oscar trophy as Best Supporting actor. Tarantino this time back with fine screenplay and creates a film which remains in memory for long. Though there’s little action but it retains surprising twist; what you expected from QT. The background score is reminds me both great composers Ennio Morricone and Nino Rota’s scores. Though having two and half hours length, it’s a film which you love to see again for QT and Waltz. One of the best of last year’s Hollywood.
