Tarantino (Virgin Film Series)

Tarantino (Virgin Film Series)

by JimSmith (Author)


"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.
