Written on Inglourious Basterds Revels in Guts and Glory:

"Movies are even used as weapons; every film student who felt their inner screenwriter stir when a film history prof lectured about the highly flammable properties of early silver nitrate film will be satisfied that someone finally found something dramatic to do with it. It’s not surprising that someone is Quentin Tarantino."

Don't forget Giuseppe Tornatore's "Cinema Paradiso" (1988), a film about film and film making in which one of the not-so-human characters, a small Italian cinema (and its projectionist) fall victim to film's then highly flammable nature.
