Finally saw Ingloriuos Basterds. Fantastic to see it after all the years in the making. What it mostly does is makes you realize how little other directors use cinema as a medium to its full potential. Tarantino is so in love with cinema, and you notice it with every shot. It’s a visceral pleasure to see him shooting his heroine in a close-up or switching to a tilting bird’s eye perspective shot. All the explicit and implicit references to German 20’s cinema, the way Shosana’s face burns on the cinema screen, the whole movie is, almost more than his other movies, a fantastic celebration of what we love about film.
