ADL Statement on Quentin Tarantino's 'Inglourious Basterds'
New York, NY, August 18, 2009 ... The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) today issued the following statement on "Inglourious Basterds," the new film written and directed by Quentin Tarantino and set in Nazi-occupied France during World War II.
"Inglourious Basterds" is an allegory about good and evil and the no-holds barred efforts to defeat the evil personified by Hitler, his henchmen and his Nazi regime. If only it were true!
Employing drama, comedy and romance with the quintessential Quentin Tarantino touch, the film is entertaining and thought-provoking . Christoph Waltz's portrayal of Col. Hans Landa, "the Jew Hunter," is chilling; Brad Pitt's Lt. Aldo Raine signifies the determination and brashness of Americans to get a job done.
