mysticpamela: This would have been great advice for Quentin Tarantino...

I know that "Inglourious Basterds" was a great hit with a lot of folks, but I felt particularly cheated and shat upon because of the blatant historical refabrications.
Forgive me if I disagree with the masses. He must have had his reasons but I still hated it.
That said, I completely loved the performances by Mélanie Laurent and Christoph Waltz.

I find this topic problematic, particularly in areas of Historical fiction or biopics.
Take the movie, A Beautiful Mind, for example. I read the biography of Nobel Prize-winner John Nash and saw the movie many times. When I compare the two, it seems like so much creative license was taken. There was such an extreme difference between the two, that it really makes me wonder how the following movies/mini series varied and adapted creative license.

A Beautiful Mind ( John Nash)
Bonnie & Clyde
The Aviator (Howard Hughes)
John Adams ( Mini series)
Malcom X
The Spirit of St. Louis ( Lindbergh)
The Diving Bell and the Butterfly
Ed Wood
Erin Brocovich
El Cid
Gorillas in the Mist
The Elephant Man
The Pianist
The Last Emporeor
