We’ve Seen Inglourious ********!
QT’s WWII epic debuts in Cannes, and…
We’ve Seen Inglourious ********!
.
Empire has just seen Quentin Tarantino’s eagerly-awaited WWII flick, Inglourious ********, and it’s rather brilliant. Every bit as idiosyncratic as the spelling of its title, it’s a wonderfully-acted movie that subverts expectation at every turn. And it may represent the most confident, audacious writing and directing of QT’s career.
.
Forget what you think you know is such a cliché, but here it more than applies. Tarantino has made a career out of subverting expectations – this is the man who made a heist flick without a heist, after all – but he’s outdone himself with ********. It’s an action movie that has barely any action. The ******** themselves, including Brad Pitt’s Lt. Aldo Raine, are off-screen for long periods of time. And it takes wild liberties with history.
.
But that’s all set up by the opening title card (the film is divided into five chapters), ‘Once Upon A Time In… Nazi-Occupied France’. Not only does that allow Tarantino to use Spaghetti Western-esque musical cues and swipe the odd shot and convention from the likes of Sergio Leone, but it frees him up to take those liberties. This is a fairytale world, in which American soldiers can ghost behind enemy lines, scalp hundreds of Nazis and never get caught. And in which… no, we won’t go there. Not yet. But the ending is so thrillingly audacious that this reporter laughed out loud when it happened. Even when, having read the script, I knew it was coming.
.
The performances are superb across-the-board. Pitt is hilarious throughout, lending his lines that air of cocky movie-star insouciance that was a touchstone of his turns in the Ocean’s movies. But the standouts for me were Michael Fassbender, who deserves to become a star on the basis of his turn as British officer Lt. Archie Hicox, and Christoph Waltz, as the movie’s villain, Col. Hans Landa, aka The Jew Hunter.
.
A complex creation, refined, calculating and yet utterly monstrous when the time comes, Landa was the role that Tarantino struggled to fill, so much so that he might have had to pass on making the movie had he not filled it. But in Waltz, he’s found gold. He may look like an evil Rob Brydon, but the Austrian actor is fantastic: oleaginous, chilling and often devilishly charming. He may be a shoo-in for a Best Supporting Oscar nom, and even though it’s mighty early yet, he could become the first actor to win for a Tarantino film.
.
There are flaws, of course – what film doesn’t have flaws? But they may be exaggerated depending on your feelings about Tarantino. Some of his Grindhouse flourishes – large captions stamped on screen, the usual flirting with structure and chronology, offbeat musical cues (a David Bowie track shows up at one point) and the sudden introduction of a hip narrator (Samuel L. Jackson) – may irk some, but this movie-movie approach has been Tarantino’s forte since Uma Thurman drew a box on the screen in Pulp Fiction.
.
It’s certainly very talky, and there’s no doubt that Tarantino is in love with the sound of his characters’ voices, but QT dialogue is so much better than most other screenwriters that it’s hard to quibble. If all scenes in movies are about control, Tarantino understands that perhaps better than anybody, and some of the scenes here – the opening exchange between Landa and a French dairy farmer, and the Reservoir Dogs-esque scene in French bar, La Louisiane – are masterclasses in how to switch control from character to character. Indeed, both scenes are as tense as anything Tarantino has ever done in his career.
.
Remember, though: this is not the official Empire review, simply a reaction to this morning’s screening. Empire’s official verdict may differ from mine, so bear that in mind.

GREAT HAIR BRAD. FABULOUS SHOES! It seems just effortless for him.

OMG! Brad looks so gorgeous and charming! This colour looks great on him! I’m so exited for the premiere this evening! I’m sure our couple will look breathtaking as always this year too!

The movie looks very promising! A fabulous director with a very strong cast! Can’t wait for the release this summer!

off for now!

Brad i sooooo hot! Everything looks great on him!

Cannes 2009: Inglourious ******** First Reaction
.
I was frogmarched into Inglourious ******** expecting the worst. I’d enjoyed what I’d seen of the script, but that first trailer terrified me more than a wet shave from Mr Blonde listening to K-Billy’s Super Sounds of the ’70s.
.
Quentin Tarantino had started shooting this thing in October ’08, and it showed. The footage looked cheap, rushed, shot on locations they’d stumbled upon in the woods.
.
I had been led into the Lumiere against my will. I haven’t loved a QT flick since Jackie Brown, and here I was, expected to sit through two hours and forty minutes of what appeared to be a hobby movie, featuring Eli Roth barking orders in a whiny voice at a bunch of TV actors?
.
Well, I was wrong to be cynical. Completely and totally.
.
Not only did I love every minute, if the French projectionist wanted to cue it up and roll it again from the start, I would have sat through the whole film again, with the biggest grin on my face.
.
This is Quentin’s best film since Jackie Brown. It might even be his best film since Pulp Fiction.
.
From the opening image of a French farmer chopping wood from a distance, you’re thrown face first into a war movie that looks and feels like a spaghetti western.
.
From there we’re led into a ten-minute sequence that’s the equal to anything Tarantino has shot, scripted and scored.
.
Hans Landa steps into the frame, grabs the film roughly by the arm and dominates it for the full duration.
.
Make no mistake, this is Landa’s film. He is the Blonde Jules of the movie; the stand-out character that will be on everyone’s lips when they’re walking out of the screen.
.
It would be a star-making performance if it wasn’t for the fact that Christoph Waltz is already a star in his native Austria. When he’s on form, Tarantino sure knows how to pluck an actor.
.
Which is why it’s such a shame that Eli Roth is a Basterd. He’s the only weak link I could spot, and I was searching for flaws like a projectionist examining a film reel.
.
Tellingly, his character’s big scene in the script has been cut from the finished flick. Why, we’ll never know, but let’s just say it’s a relief whenever he’s offscreen.
.
But that minor quibble can’t take away from a film that’s this incredible. It contains Tarantino dialogue at its best – the subtitle gags, and nods to the Cannes audience betray the film’s origins; surely this is the first film shot specifically for a film festival – but that’s not all.
.
QT’s magpie eye has never been sharper, swooping down on Italian cinema and plucking the very best shots, framing and music to create a deserving homage to the spaghetti westerns of my youth.
.
But ******** is packed with images and moments that could only have come from Quentin’s manic mind. I can’t tell you about my favourite frames, for fear of ruining the conclusion, but look out for a red dress moment at one point, and some laughing smoke at another and you’ll see two reasons why I loved it so much.
.
Check our video review later for my score, but don’t expect a three.

Tarantino & Co. in Cannes
.
CANNES, France (AFP) – Brad Pitt and the rest of the cast of Quentin Tarantino’s latest film “Inglourious ********” are in Cannes for the premiere Wednesday, but haven’t yet seen the movie.
.
“None of us have seen the film,” Pitt said at a news conference ahead of its red-carpet release.
.
The blood-and-guts Second World War story of Jewish-American soldiers on a mission to murder Nazis won a warm response from critics at a preview.
.
And both press and bystanders all but mobbed Pitt, Tarantino and Diane Kruger for autographs and pictures as they swept in to the festival to meet the media.
.
The long-awaited film from the cult US director of “Reservoir Dogs”, “Pulp Fiction” and “Kill Bill” is among 20 movies competing for the top Cannes award, the Palme d’Or.
.
Like Spanish director Pedro Almodovar, whose “Broken Embraces” is one of the top contenders for the trophy, a sub-plot of the movie is cinema itself.

Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious ******** has screened to the international press at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival. It will be a few hours before we have full reviews, but here is the early Twitter buzz:
.
FirstShowing : Inglourious ******** was frickin’ awesome! This is the WW2 movie we’ve all been waiting to see!! Lots of talking scenes, but still great! Diff than I was expecting, but I think Tarantino is back in action, hell yea!! The action is kind of minimal, but that’s Tarantino for you, lots of talking, but great story, I loved it!
.
Alison Willmore (abridged): INGLOURIOUS ********: Soooooooooooooooo Muuuuuuuuuuuuuuuch Taaaaaaaaaalkiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiing!
.
empiremagazine: Glorious ********, as it turns out… very, very good, subverting expectations at every corner. Should make Michael Fassbender a star – C It’s utterly unpredictable. When it looks like going one way, it twists the other, & the ending… so audacious it provokes giddy laughter. Christoph Waltz, as Jew Hunter Hans Landa, is a revelation. Shoo-in for Best Supporting Nom. Looks like evil Rob Brydon too. All performances are uniformly grand. Pitt’s hilarious. And the film has two or three scenes that rival anything in QT’s career for tension.
.
BBCEntsTeam: Surely Tarantino’s best film since Pulp Fiction. Goody!! Brad Pitt is superb… It’s flabby in parts… And (spoiler?) Tarantino has produced an alternative ending to WWII
.
Nadianeo : Inglourious ******** was almost 3 hours long but a good watch-lotsa typical Tarantino moves
.
monggaard [Strange] film, Inglourious ********. [In a good way]. Tarantino pulls no punches. Revenge, Jewish style.
.
joakimt: “Inglourus ********” as expected. Quite funny and violent, and far from Tarantinos best workNo sustained applause for “Inglourious ********”. No boos either.
.
Hyams: INGLORIOUS ********: a light comedy about killing Nazis. My low expectations were met. \\
.
owfilm: Just came out of Cannes screening… Inglorious ******** – Absolute F**CKING quality! “It gets a bit silly for ten minutes at the end and the brit characters are a bit ****”.
.
djmecca: just saw Inglorious ******** in Cannes. […} the movie works and is the best competing film Ive seen at the fest so far.
.
Jesseblanco: INGLOURIOUS ******** ( Cannes ), steadfast and strong, a linguistic’s dream, not historically acurate in a GREAT way.
.
gkilday ******** turns out it’s the grindhouse version of “Valkyrie”
.

Good Actor, not the best and I don’t really care for him much. He acts like he knows he’s something now.
