Abstract:

From Reservoir Dogs in 1992 to the recent Kill Bill series, the films of Quentin Tarantino have always provoked a reaction from audiences and critics alike, many attracting a cultlike following. In this book, Edwin Page discusses each of the eight films that Tarantino has either written or directed, or both, in an attempt to find out how the former video store clerk has realized his fantasy and become one of the world's most successful and well-known directors. Examining the inspiration and influences behind each film, as well as identifying the common threads that run through all of his work, this book aims to show the depth and complexity behind Tarantino's trademark "guns and gangsters" style.
