Inglourious Basterds: Possibly Not Boring?


Variety's Todd McCarthy takes a bold stance on Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds, already shrugged off by most who saw this morning's Cannes screening: "Inglourious Basterds is a violent fairy tale, an increasingly entertaining fantasia ... [It] only fully finds its tonal footing about halfway through, after which it's off to the races. By turns surprising, nutty, windy, audacious and a bit caught up in its own cleverness, the picture is a completely distinctive piece of American pop art." [Variety]
