Quentin Tarantino and ‘Inglourious Basterds’

Renee Bright

What do you get when you mix conversations about burgers in Europe, debates about Madonna’s “Like a Virgin,” plus lots of violence? A Tarantino movie. 

We’re talking about Quentin Tarantino’s life and work on “RadioWest” this week. He’s been making utterly unique films for decades — movies shot through with sprawling, magnetic dialogue; sometimes shocking violence; and, very often, Samuel L. Jackson. These days, Tarantino’s style is much imitated but never replicated. In advance of the Salt Lake Film Society’s screening of his war epic “Inglourious Basterds” we’ll talk about one of the most important filmmakers working today. Please join us this Friday at noon.

The Salt Lake Film Society is screening “Inglourious Basterds” in 35mm on Thursday, June 29, at 7 p.m. at Salt Lake’s Broadway Theatre. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Doug and University of Utah professor and screenwriter, Hubbel Palmer. You can find the details here. Admission to all "In the Can" screenings is $15, but complimentary for students thanks to Magic Space. Email info@saltlakefilmsociety.org for more details.
