Summary:
"In 1992 a low-budget genre movie, shot almost entirely in a grisly concrete warehouse by a first-time director, was screened at the Cannes Film Festival. The script had been written in felt-tip pen in just three and a half weeks by a self-confessed 'movie geek' with no formal training, just a lifetime's diet of pulp paperbacks and "B" movies for inspiration.

Abstract:

"In 1992 a low-budget genre movie, shot almost entirely in a grisly concrete warehouse by a first-time director, was screened at the Cannes Film Festival. The script had been written in felt-tip pen in just three and a half weeks by a self-confessed 'movie geek' with no formal training, just a lifetime's diet of pulp paperbacks and "B" movies for inspiration. A few months later, Reservoir Dogs was being heralded as the cult film of the decade, with Julie Burchill describing it as "the best film ever made"."--BOOK JACKET. "No other film debut has generated the same amount of controversy and moral indignation as Reservoir Dogs. Quentin Tarantino is now undeniably the hottest name in the film world. He has been accused of glamorizing crime, of glorifying drugs, of gratuitously using violence, yet his warped pop-action thrillers with their sharp line in surreal dialogue, intricate structure and inspired casting have established him as the film stylist of the Nineties."--BOOK JACKET. "Reservoir Dogs rocketed Tarantino from struggling unknown to mass-media entity. All eyes were on his follow-up. Pulp Fiction proved he was more than just a weird iconoclast with a very twisted sense of humour. A contemporary film noir that succeeded in being simultaneously hilarious, surreal, shocking and sexy, it screamed the presence of a major league talent."--BOOK JACKET. "All Tarantino's projects - including the screenplays for Natural Born Killers and True Romance - are characterised by their brutally hard-core imagery, yet in person he is notable for his boyish enthusiasm for films, his insatiable interest in the trash aesthetic and his gangling, awkward charm. Paul A. Woods, equally fanatical film-buff, brings a mine of little-known information and anecdote to make this the ultimate portrait of the crown prince of contemporary cinema and his films."--BOOK JACKET.
