Oh, that Quentin Tarantino, he knows subtlety like I know romantic comedies, and I know romantic comedies like no one’s business. Check out the latest poster for QT’s “Inglourious Basterds”, which features a gun-toting Brad Pitt standing on a pile of dead Nazi bodies. I think they’re trying to say something with this poster, but I can’t just put my finger on it…
In Nazi-occupied France during World War II, a group of Jewish-American soldiers known as “The Basterds” are chosen specifically to spread fear throughout the Third Reich by scalping and brutally killing Nazis. The Basterds soon cross paths with a French-Jewish teenage girl who runs a movie theater in Paris which is targeted by the soldiers.
