DVD: Inglourious Basterds

Quentin Tarantino'sSecond World Warmovie is far moreenjoyable than his lastwoeful effort, DeathProof, but there's stillno sign that he's willingto put his ego to theservice of a full realised,satisfying film. Essentially,he's so in love withhis grandstandingmonologues anddialogues that he letshalf a dozen of them playout at interminablelength, with preciouslittle connective tissue –such as plot or roundedcharacters – betweenthem.
