In Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds, Brad Pitt took on the iconic role of Lieutenant Aldo Raine, who demanded one thing from every member of his fighting force: 100 Nazi heads! The character was referring to his ancestors who dealt with the corpses of their enemies in the same way. But Brad Pitt and rolling heads aren’t just seen in Inglourious Basterds.
In Legends of the Fall, by Edward Zwick (The Last Samurai), however, it is not Brad Pitt who gives the order to scalp his enemies. Instead, like Tristan Ludlow, he’s in action in the First World War and does the dirty work himself! Very appropriate: There is also an indigenous context, as Brad Pitt’s character was socialized by a Native American named Ein-Stich (Gordon Tootoosis), among others. But that’s where the 1995 epic, which can be watched with a subscription to Netflixit really picks up speed…
WHAT IS THE STORY OF LEGENDS OF THE PASSION?
Colonel William Ludlow (Anthony Hopkins) and his three sons Samuel (Henry Thomas), Tristan (Brad Pitt) and Alfred (Aidan Quinn) live in the Rocky Mountains in the early 20th century. Shortly before the outbreak of the First World War, the relationship between the three brothers is put to the test: Alfred falls in love with Susannah (Julia Ormond), Samuel’s fiancee, who, in turn, has feelings for Tristan. When the brothers decide to go to the front against their father’s wishes, the family’s unity threatens to fall apart.
