I return briefly to Inglourious Basterds to illustrate further the genius that permeates even the smallest details of Tarantino's work.
There's an insignificant scene showcasing Tarantino's literary prowess:
Brigdet Von Hammersmark (Diane Kruger): There have been two recent developments regarding Operation Kino. One, the venue has been changed from the Ritz to a much smaller venue.
Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt): Enormous changes at the last minute? That's not very "Germatic."
It's a malapropism line played for laughs, but buried within is a reference to Jewish-American short story writer Grace Paley (who recently died) and her famous book, Enormous Changes At The Last Minute, hence the added meaning of not being very "Germatic." Ha-ha!Brilliant stuff, Quentin.
