The Art of the Montage: Inglourious Basterds

IGpOSTEROver at Graffiti with Punctuation I wrote a piece The Art of the Montage: Inglourious Basterds, focusing on the sequence that opens Chapter Five: Revenge of the Giant Face in the film.

Shosanna Dreyfus’ (Mélanie Laurent) ambush at the film premiere of Stolz der Nation (A Nation’s Pride) is the apex of the historical revenge fantasy of Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds. The mission of the Basterds is where Tarantino gets to play out his World War II homage to The Dirty DozenWhere Eagles Dare and The Guns of Navarone, but Shosanna’s arc is the emotional, fury of vengeance at the heart of the film.

Check out the article and let me know what you think or leave a comment with your interpretation of the montage.  If you prefer to Tweet, shout me out @MrCamW.
