‘Inglourious Basterds’ has its glorious moments

If only Quentin Tarantino the director weren’t so completely in love with Q.T. the writer, “Inglourious Basterds” might have been a great movie rather than just a good movie with moments of greatness. Scenes of his wildly revisionist World War II saga have a wonderfully palpable tension, but then he undermines them by allowing them to go on too long.

Everything that’s thrilling and maddening about his films co-exists and co-mingles here: the visual dexterity and the interminable dialogue, the homage to cinema and the self-glorifying drive to redefine it, the compelling bursts of energy and the numbingly draggy sections.
