I just saw the Basterds, and as you would expect, it´s beyond great. And the soundtrack does not disappoint either. Composed mostly of non-original compositions of the spaghetti-western variety, plus a welcome contribution from Giorgio Moroder.

Tarrantino chooses to end the movie with a nod to a spaghetti-western milestone, Ennio Morricone´s “Rabbia E Tarantella” from Sergio Leone´s 1968 classic Once Upon A Time In The West. This is after he suggests that “Basterds” just might be his masterpiece, and indeed it is.
