Description

"Reservoir Dogs" launched Quentin Tarantino as a pioneering new filmmaker and director - his hip-talking, hypnotically shot, ultraviolent US indie films revolutionised American filmmaking and spawned a number of imitators. Jim Smith examines the iconic films Tarantino has directed including "Pulp Fiction", "Jackie Brown" and "Kill Bill", as well as exploring the Tarantino scripts that were filmed by other directors such as "True Romance" and the controversial "Natural Born Killers". Whilst exploring Tarantino's range of projects as an actor, producer and presenter, and his work outside film, Smith analyses the significance of the director's use of favourite actors, anachronisms, borrowed music and reference points and shows how they relate to recurring themes such as heritage, personal responsibility and redemption.show more

Back cover copy

"Fans will devour every word." Film Review Reservoir Dogs launched Quentin Tarantino as a pioneering young filmmaker. Since then, his hip-talking, ultraviolent, hypnotically shot films have reinvigorated American moviemaking and spawned a host of imitators. Jim Smith's acclaimed guide examines the iconic films Tarantino has directed, including massive hits Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown and Kill Bill volumes I and II, as well as the Tarantino scripts that have been filmed by other directors, such as True Romance and the controversial and extensively rewritten Natural Born Killers. The book also explores Tarantino's projects as an actor and producer and his work outside film, such as his episode of ER. Tarantino analyzes the significance of the director's use of favourite actors, anachronisms, borrowed music and reference points and shows how they link to recurring themes-such as heritage, personal responsibility and redemption-that have particular significance to Tarantino.show more
