My interview with Quentin Tarantino about his new movie, "Inglourious Basterds," is now up on the Atlantic website, though I suggest you read it after you subscribe to the magazine. I don't want to give away too much about my time with Tarantino, but I will share this one, representative quote: "Holocaust movies always have Jews as victims," he told me, by way of explaining why he made the movie he made. "We've seen that story before. I want to see something different. Let's see Germans that are scared of Jews. Let's not have everything build up to a big misery, let's actually take the fun of action-movie cinema and apply it to this situation."
