INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS
2009, Swank, 153 min, Germany/USA, Dir: Quentin Tarantino

This WWII-set box office hit stars Brad Pitt as Lt. Aldo Raine, who leads the Basterds, a paramilitary squad that terrorizes the Nazis with quick strikes in enemy territory. The fighters team up with a French theater owner and devise a plot to kill Hitler at a screening of a new propaganda film. Christoph Waltz earned a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his turn as duplicitous SS officer Hans Landa. “Quentin Tarantino’s INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS is a big, bold, audacious war movie that will annoy some, startle others and demonstrate once again that he’s the real thing, a director of quixotic delights.” – Roger Ebert.


PULP FICTION
1994, Park Circus/Miramax, 153 min, USA, Dir: Quentin Tarantino

Quentin Tarantino’s dazzling, nitro-fueled homage to 1930s crime fiction, Elvis Presley flicks, Los Angeles diners, Jean-Luc Godard, Jean-Pierre Melville and much more was easily the most audacious and exciting American film of the 1990s. The movie’s brilliant, against-type casting includes John Travolta (in a career-reviving performance), Samuel L. Jackson, Uma Thurman, Bruce Willis, Harvey Keitel, Eric Stoltz, Maria de Medeiros, Tim Roth, Amanda Plummer, Christopher Walken and Ving Rhames. Nominated for seven Oscars and winner for Best Screenplay. Winner of LAFCA Awards for Best Picture, Actor (Travolta) and Screenplay (Tarantino and Roger Avary).
