1. ‘Inglourious Basterds’
Quentin Tarantino has never really explained the misspelling in his 2009 war film. One of his highest grossing films, “Inglourious Basterds” stars Brad Pitt, Christoph Waltz and Mélanie Laurent in a revisionist history wherein an American strike force kills Hitler. Tarantino spent just over a decade writing the script for the film, wrestling with the ending. The film was nominated for eight Academy Awards. “Inglourious Basterds” is not a film that could have been made before the Six Days War, or even during the 1990s. While completely revising history, the film reflects a modern Jewish will to fight, at odds with early portrayal of Holocaust victims.
