Peaceful Stoner’s review published on Letterboxd:
The first twenty minutes of this film, are one of the most tense, chilling and heart pounding acts ever in cinema. God, that was awesome. Christopher Waltz, you Beauty. He is perfect as the Ever Smiling, ruthless racist monster, Hans Landa.
Brad Pitt with his American accent and style just swept me off my feet. Many might say that Waltz's performance overshadowed Pitt's. But I liked him equally well. No one could have given such a magnetic appeal to Lt.Aldo The Apache Raine other then Pitt.
The supporting cast of Eli Roth (The Bear Jew), Michael Fassbender, Diane Kruger, all play their roles perfectly well.
This film fumes with so much anger and tension in each and every frame which is so captivating and enthralling. The dialogues are so powerful and iconic that they stay in your mind for days. The very way each scene is set up and filmed is spellbinding. And do I have to say about the conversations and the silences in this movie. They reach another new level of awesomeness when compared to any other Tarantino Movie.
Quentin Tarantino. Well what can I say about this guy?
When Aldo Raine tells Utivitch
You know somethin', Utivich? I think this just might be my masterpiece.
I think, Tarantino was implying about the film he has made. What audacity, confidence and guts would a director have to place such a dialogue as the last one in his movie.
He is a BAND APART.
He is a Glourious Basterd.
This might just be the Epitome of his film making.
He re-wrote world history with this movie. He has all the attributes and the potential to re-write film-making history( IMO he already has).
