In Nazi-occupied France, a squad of American soldiers plans a fateful face-off to take out leaders of the Third Reich in Quentin Tarantino’s World War II revenge fantasy.
“Inglourious Basterds” is playing in 35mm as part of the Somerville Theatre’s “F**k the Nazis!” film series. This series came together because of a few different things: The fact that in the new “Indiana Jones” movie, which we are opening after this series, Indy is still fighting the Nazis, even though the new one takes place mostly in 1969. Nazis are perhaps the ultimate bad guys in movies, and have been for as long as their flaccid little ethos has been around. But then you look at the news and see all these doofus neo-Nazis popping up now around the country, and even in Boston, and you realize there’s still a bunch of braindead human turds who believe in that crap. It’s more prominent now than it has been in generations, and there is a scary corresponding rise in antisemitism following it.
These movies range from serious classic dramas to the utterly ridiculous, from the romance of “Casablanca” to the zombies of “Dead Snow.” And, yeah, Jake and Elwood are there too, pushing those Illinois Nazis right off that bridge.
