breaking bad

Inglourious Basterds

Todd Alcott's unfolding overview of Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds (link to latest excerpt) is worth a read. I think he correctly identifies the ambivalence and moral challenge which is coded into the film. It is surprising to me how the reviews by professionals I read in newspapers and so-on seem not to get that aspect of modern film and TV, while amateur/online reviewers do.
