Behind Nation's Pride

Sep. 11, 2009by: Mike Sampson

If you still haven't seen INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS, you might not have that much more time to see it in the theaters so I recommend you head out this weekend and check it out. If that was the purpose of the video below (me reminded people to go see INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS), then I suppose it worked. If the purpose was to be funny, cheeky or somehow entertaining, I think it failed.

The basic setup is that it's an EPK-style piece for the Nazi propaganda film "Nation's Pride" that features heavily in the later acts of BASTERDS. Except for a film like BASTERDS, which relies heavily on authenticity, this clip is about as authentic as a three-dollar bill. I mean Daniel Bruhl, who plays "Nation's" star Frederick Zoller, is doing his interview in a windbreaker and blue oxford shirt. I mean maybe that's the point that it's so bad it's parodying modern EPKs but if that's the point, I think the point was missed. That said, if you've ever wanted to see Eli Roth try out his German accent, check it out below:

Extra Tidbit: If you haven't seen BASTERDS don't let this skew your opinion of the film.

Jesus, lighten up! This was hilarious! And did you say IB, in which Hitler dies, relies heavily on authenticity?

I thought it was goofy and silly, which I am postive was the point, thus, I liked it.

Probably would have been better if they didn't half ass their effort to make a mockumentary.
