Tarantino releases the film, Inglourious Basterds. It receives eight Oscar nominations including best director and best original screenplay. The World War II tale follows a group of eight Jewish soldiers led by Aldo Raine, played by Brad Pitt, as they embark on a mission to assassinate Adolf Hitler. The film also stars Eli Roth, Christoph Waltz, Michael Fassbender, and Mélanie Laurent.
I enjoy the war-mission subgenre but I want to forward it, make it bigger, broader, more artistic… I got to write a war film and a love letter to cinema.
