    I shall save what would doubtlessly be a long conversation of some agreements and some compromises between our opinion, in exhange for what I tell everyone who asks what I think of this film, that it’s not about the Basterds.
    In some ways (but only in the loose theory I’m about to present) I had a District 9 feeling from it. If that film split into two, each would be great for their own reasons just the same that if Basterds split, we’d have two great tales (an expansion on the sheer brutality of the Basterds as an expliotation film and the revenge tale of the theatre, as you mentioned, as a tight thriller).

    In some ways (really, only in the loose theory I’m about to present) I had a District 9 feeling from it. If D9 split into two films, each would be great for their own reasons. I feel the same if Basterds split. We’d have two great tales (an expansion on the sheer brutality of the Basterds as an expliotation film and the revenge tale of the theatre, as you mentioned, as a tight thriller).
