9 – Inglourious Basterds (2009)


This bold reimagining of how the allies won World War II is rife with Tarantino’s most enjoyable conventions: a plot unfolding via a series of vignettes, dialogue that spits and kicks, an ensemble cast. Christoph Waltz gives a standout performance as the “Jew Hunter” who conducts his terrible business with amiable ease. Tarantino does not shy away from writing repellant Fascist characters in his usual witty style but the titular avenging Basterds mean moral ambiguity is never a question.

Like: Nothing else.

Core truth: Nazis are bad.
