Brad Pitt thinks his latest movie, Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds, is the last word in Second World War movies.

“The Second World War could still deliver more stories and films, but I believe that Quentin put a cover on that pot. With Basterds, everything than can be said to this genre has been said,” Pitt told German magazine Stern. “The film destroys every symbol. The work is done, end of story.”

As for Tom Cruise’s Valkyrie, about a Nazi plot to kill Hitler? “It was a ridiculous movie,” he said.
