“He gave me my movie back”

There’s a bit on Inglourious Basterds on Variety today where Quentin talks a little about some of his feelings and expectations towards this week’s world premiere of his WW2 epic. Not only does he reemphasize how central the Landa character was for the fate of this project, he also puts Cannes in its rightful place as a festival where auteurs can come with their works and receive both the recognition and the critical evaluation they long for after putting their blood, sweat and tears into their movies. Click here to read the piece. Inglourious Basterds premieres Wednesday at the 62nd Cannes Film Festival in France. We expect the most interesting advance reviews no later than thursday. Unfortunately this website does not have an official reporter on location this time, we apologize (blame the financial crisis). [picture source]
