I'd never thought of it from that perspective, but I think it works, Pinko. I'm about due to watch this again and I'll bear in mind what you said.

That's totally the main point of the movie. Why else would we see nazis get blown up as they watch a movie about Americans getting shot? We say boo them and yay us and QT is pointing that out pretty clearly, I think.

Sam, I re-read your review, and afterwards I created a Wordle of it to confirm I suspected.

Sure enough, you use the word 'film' 51 times, and your repetition of that word does a very good job of helping you make your point.
