Why am I posting this seemingly mundane picture taken at the Cannes Film Fest, when its nothing more than another character poster for Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds? Well, I could justify this action by stating my high level of respect for actor Michael Fassbender, as a result of his incredible performance in Steve McQueen’s stunning Hunger and not-as-incredible but still quite strong turn in the underrated British thriller Eden Lake. I could also say that I’m giving Tarantino the figurative hand-clap for casting Fassbender in the first place and giving the guy his own poster.
But then, it’d be much easier to say this: it’s for Inglourious Basterds, people! A film I’m all about seeing. Case closed.
