Tarantino | Non-linear Narratives

Tarantino | Non-linear Narratives | A2 Film Studies | Scoop.it

Non-linear narratives can be seen as a combination of two already well-established techniques; the retrospective (from Latin retrospectare, “look back”), which is a dramaturgical technique, created by the Greek dramatists – Sophocles and Euripides, in the 400s BC.

Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction)

Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction) | A2 Film Studies | Scoop.it

CHARLIE ROSE, Host: Welcome to our broadcast. Tonight, we will spend the hour with the writer and director, Quentin Tarantino. In one of the tensest scenes in any movie this year, a gangster played by John Travolta drives his boss' wife, who is near death after an overdose, to the home of a drug dealer in the middle of the night. She needs an adrenalin shot to the heart, but neither Travolta nor the drug dealer have ever administered one. The men fight about who is responsible for the OD before Travolta plunges a needle into the chest of the comatose girl.Pulp Fiction, which won the top prize at Cannes this year, is the second film written and directed by Tarantino, a self-described movie geek, who spent five years working at a video rental store. Pulp Fiction opened the New York Film Festival in September. It stars John Travolta, Samuel Jackson, Uma Thurman, Bruce Willis, and Harvey Keitel. And we are pleased to have the director right here, Quentin Tarantino. Thank you for coming. 
QUENTIN TARANTINO, Director, Screenwriter: Thank you. I've, I've, I was looking forward to being here for- 
CR: And saying hello to my table. 
QT: Yes, exactly. The table. 
CR: The table. Everybody, when they talk about you, talk about- you get this sense of a, of a young person, a kid early on falling in love with movies. Is that- is- tell me about it. 
QT: Oh, that's- well, that's totally true. I mean, the things is I- it's not as, as bizarre as people keep making it- 
CR: Yeah.

Frame by Frame | The Auteur Theory in Film

Frame by Frame | The Auteur Theory in Film | A2 Film Studies | Scoop.it

Auteurism is now almost taken for granted. People consider films as an “Alfred Hitchcock film,” a “Howard Hawks film,” an “Ingmar Bergman film,” a “Bernardo Bertolucci film,” a “Quentin Tarantino film.” And in most cases, the director is the primary force behind the making of a film. Movies are a team effort. But without one vision to guide them, films collapse into committee projects, which may be commercially successful, but aren’t personal statements. And so the director’s input into a film is absolutely essential, and auteurism has become the dominant way of looking at films in theory and criticism.
