The script has some interesting differences from the final film. Some scenes are shorten or removed. Others play very differently because of some minor changes in dialogue or staging.
What comes through clearly, both in print and in film, is Tarantino's gift for wholly artificially, but enthralling dialogue, and his incisive feel for character and scene.
If you didn't like the film, and you're not a film student, there's not much need to buy this. But if you're a fan, or looking for insight into how to write a less-than-formulaic screenplay, rush out and get it!
Inglourious Basterds is something to really read for any reader. Rarely have I ever read a script where I actually feel emotion in the description as well as the dialogue, which kind of makes me sad that many will not read the screenplay and just see the movie.
For me, I do love the movie, of course, but the screenplay is where my heart is and I really recommend it for any movie fan or reader. It will put you on edge, make you laugh, cry, and at times be horrified.
As far as writing goes, this is Tarantino's masterpiece. Check it out!
