Diane Kruger’s “Inglourious” reunion with Brad Pitt

August 19, 2009

Diane Kruger and Brad Pitt starred together in the 2004 movie “Troy,” and they reunite on screen in the movie “Inglourious Basterds” opening on Friday. But the reunion comes with a bloody twist, a moment more akin to a Freddy Krueger movie than a Diane Kruger’s flick, when Pitt’s U.S. Army lieutenant character sticks his finger in a fresh bullet wound in her leg.brad-pitt-and-diane-kruger

It’s squeamish stuff, in line with the movie itself, which is high on over-the-top violence and the sometimes gruesome irony that is inherent in much of Tarantino’s work. But Kruger isn’t sore about the painful scene, and she has nothing but good things to say about Pitt and Tarantino.

“When you work with Brad, it’s a lot of fun,” Kruger told Reuters. “He’s a great playmate and you can really bounce off him.”

As for Tarantino, the actress said that she and most actors are big fans of the director. 

“All his movies are performance-driven and he writes incredibly well for women,” she said. “I loved Pam Grier in ‘Jackie Brown.’

It is a masterpiece!

Depicting the Nazis accordingly for their viciousness against the Jews and what most of us would have liked to have occurred against Hitler and his henchmen is in its proper perspectiveness.

The cinematography and color was awesome. Brad played a character and a half … the film took turns no one would ever think of and David Bowie’s song was so great … as well as the rest of the soundtrack. The characters were terrific and the acting was excellent.

Tarantino’s work is an absolute masterpiece. He indeed did invent a new shade of red! Really a stunning movie.

Guess it helps that my father fought at Normandy on D-Day through the Battle of the Scheldt in Holland and Belgium to Berlin and I have directed my own film about WWII. GETTYMOVIE is the Getty/Hitler trilogy.

It’s unique directors like Tarantino that inspire one to push the envelope.
