More About This Title Tarantino


Tarantino burst onto the scene in 1992 with Reservoir Dogs, creating a brand of hip-talking, hypnotically shot, ultraviolent indie cinema that reinvigorated mainstream American film and spawned many imitators. Now take a detailed look at the pictures Tarantino directed, the scripts of his made into films by other directors—including True Romance and the controversial, heavily rewritten Natural Born Killers, and his other work, including both his episodes of ER and his projects as an actor, producer, and presenter. Explore the significance of the director's use of favorite actors, anachronisms, borrowed music, and reference points, and how they relate to recurring themes such as heritage, personal responsibility, and redemption.


Jim Smith is the author of Gangster Films and George Lucas and the coauthor of Tim Burton and Bond Films, all part of the Virgin Film series.
