i used to think he was cynical in this appropriation...most people who hate him do, but now I think he was just an immature film maker showing off

basterds is a complex, moral work...as much as any made in the last decade...django isn't quite that, but it is more fun and exhilarating (as it deals with america's great wound, instead of europe's)

there was a palpable charge in the theatre at the end...hence my babbling
