Today we can say a very happy birthday to director and actor Eli Roth. He is best known for directing Hostel and Cabin Fever, but also appeared alongside Brad Pitt in Quentin Tarantino's WWII adventure Inglorious Basterds. He is one of the Basterds, tasked with taking down Adolf Hitler.
The film stars Pitt, Roth, Michael Fassbender, Melanie Laurent, Diane Kruger and the fantastically menacing Christoph Waltz (in an Oscar winning role). The film could do with a trim but also contains some of Tarantino's finest work (the opening interrogation scene is wonderfully crafted and written).
