Setka, Stella. 2015. in Jewish Film & New Media: An International Journal, 3 (2): 141-169.

A critical analysis of Tarantino’s ‘Inglorious Bastards’ and the film’s exploration of the concept of collective memory. Setka defends the source from being oversimplified as a revenge fantasy and instead justifies the use of multiple different narratives as a stylistic choice to shed light on overlooked narratives of the conflict, as well as humour as a parody of Hollywood’s war narrative tropes.
