Tarantino's war masterpiece.

I have no shame in saying that this is one of my favorite films of all time. No other film has kept me captivated on the edge of witty dialogue for that long, nor have I been entranced with such mesmerizing performances and carefully executed camera work. This satire speaks to you, makes you laugh, whimper, smile sadistically with joy or just be plain mesmerized. Standout are Christoph Waltz and Brad Pitt, who equally share comedic and serious moments in ways that I've never seen possible in the cinema. Waltz is a revelation and his SS officer will go down as one of the best villains in cinema history. Full of plot twists, Tarantino tropes, his trademark violence and pop culture reference, this is a film buffs dream and Tarantino has proved to us he can really change history.
