Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds
A Manipulation of MetacinemaUnknown - 2012
This provocative and unique anthology analyzes Quentin Tarantino's controversial Inglourious Basterds in the contexts of cinema, cultural, gender, and historical studies. The film and its ideology is dissected by a range of scholars and writers who take on the director's manipulation of metacinema, Nazisploitation, ethnic stereotyping, gender roles, allohistoricism, geopolitics, philosophy, language, and memory. In this collection, the eroticism of the club-swinging and avenging Bear Jew, the dashed heroism of the role-playing French and German females, the patriotic fools and pawns, the amora.
