Went the Day Well?

1942

Went the Day Well? Poster
  • A queer little duck, as its characters might put it—undistinguished both dramatically and formally, but endlessly fascinating as an alternate-history of WWII produced when the war's outcome was still very much in doubt. It's as if Tarantino had made Inglourious Basterds in 1942, had that film been otherwise kinda blah. Surprisingly brutal at times (albeit in the bloodless way typical of the era), with a rich sense of character; it _is_ propaganda, though, and the necessary jingoism keeps getting in the way.
