The 20 best movie-within-a-movie moments

Inglourious Basterds (2009)

The film: Quentin Tarantinos revenge fantasy tells an alternate version of history in which Hitler and several other high-ranking Nazis are killed in a cinema.

The film theyre watching: Stolz der Nation (or Nation's Pride) is a fake German propaganda film directed by Eli Roth (who also plays the Bear Jew in Inglourious Basterds). The version the Nazis get to see is a doctored version, though, featuring cinema proprietor Shosanna (Mlanie Laurent) gleefully telling them theyre going to die just before the whole place goes up in flames.
