6. Inglourious Basterds
Quentin Tarantino at his finest…that is “violence for violence sake.” But it’s brilliantly done and such a unique film. You’ll be crying, laughing, and cringing all the way through. Another film set in WWII, only this time in Nazi-occupied France. The Jewish-American guerrillas, or “Basterds,” execute a plan to assassinate Nazi leaders.
“I’ve done my share of bootlegging. Up ‘ere, if you engage in what the federal government calls ‘illegal activity,’ but what we call ‘just a man tryin’ to make a livin’ for his family sellin’ moonshine liquor,’ it behooves oneself to keep his wits. Long story short, we hear a story too good to be true…it ain’t.”
