23. Inglourious Basterds
Fueled by its creator’s unwavering belief in the power of film (more specifically, in his own films), Inglourious Basterds is the most gleefully irreverent depiction of the Third Reich. Brad Pitt plays Nazi-killing Lt. Aldo Raine in Quentin Tarantino’s alternate-history take on World War II. This film introduced the world at large to Christoph Waltz. It also showed us that, in this one-of-a-kind auteur?s world, movies are so powerful that they can literally kill Hitler.
