Inglorious Bastards (Review)

Inglorious Bastards Directed by Enzo Castellari When Tarantino opened the retrospective 'The Italian King of B's' at the 2004 Venice Biennale with Joe Dante, he publicly declared his love for Italian B-cinema of the 60s and 70s, helping to shine a spotlight on many forgotten gems of Italian genre/exploitation cinema including The Inglorious Bastards. Also known under the alternate titles of Hell's Heroes, The Deadly Mission, and G. I. Bro, Enzo G. Castellari's Bastards may have been a cash in on The Dirty Dozen, but its a successful one. A film with a concept so rich that one would understand it's influence on Tarantino, it's a fast paced knock-off reeking of untapped potential, just waiting for someone to remake it. While the film's obvious low budget prevented it from becoming a North American success, it still found a significant cult following (mostly in Europe) and is reputedly one of Quentin's favorite films.
