Ragtime and the Inglourious Basterds

The following quote is very topical in the world of showbiz… (Somehow though we think it should be taken with a Tarantino-sized pinch of salt – most of the kids in the show won’t be able to watch this movie for a good few years!)

Article/interview from Observer Magazine (Sunday 9th August) about Tarantino’s new movie, Inglourious Basterds….

This plotline is the Dirty Dozen remade as torture flick with a nod, I kid you not, to those old-fashioned, stiff upper-lip British war films of the 60s. “I sat down to write a bunch-of-guys-on-a-mission movie,” says Tarantino, “and that happens, but it’s closer to, say, the film of EL Doctorow’s Ragtime than it is to The Devil’s Brigade.”

  1. I saw Ragtime on Sat 8th and haven’t stopped talking about it since. I was blown away! I loved the imaginative use of the hall and the slick use of props. The performances were incredible – particularly from Hannah Scott, Rebecca Clark and Sean Quinn. I look forward to seeing them in the Westend in years to come . . .such mature performances! I have been recommending this show to all I know. Good luck with the rest of the run and thank-you!
