Quentin Tarantino, Actor: Pulp Fiction. In January of 1992, Reservoir Dogs appeared at the Sundance Film Festival, by first-time writer-director Quentin Tarantino. The film garnered critical acclaim and the director became a legend immediately.
Reservoir Dogs, released 20 years ago in the US this month, blindsided almost everyone who saw it when it first came out with its fragmented storytelling, its juxtaposition of jaunty pop music and bracing violence, and its rat-tat-tat dialogue. That it feels almost conventional today is just a reflection of how influential Quentin Tarantino’s debut would be for the next two decades.
Now, before we dive into this little update from Quentin Tarantino on what he might direct next, let's just remember that over the course of the press tour for "Django Unchained," he's had a lot of ideas.
A few weeks ago, at Bold Hype Gallery in Chelsea, NYC, Spoke Art presented this awesome artshow featuring Tarantino and Coen brothers movies. From Kill Bill to Fargo, from Pulp Fiction to True Grit, dozens of artists played with the universes of those incredibly talented directors. Geek-Art.net invites you to check some of those great pieces in the full article ! Click on the pics to get the artist and the artwork’s names. I picked some of my favorite, but you can check the whole pieces here and here. Enjoy !
Families flocked to the multiplex on Christmas Day, resulting in huge box office openings.
The Tom Hooper-directed broadway adaptation "Les Miserables" raked in $17.5 million, boasting an all-star cast comprised of Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway and Russell Crowe, according toTHR.
Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" came strong in second place, grossing $14 million as the first R-rated movie to open on Christmas Day. One person who probably didn't head to the theatre to catch the flick was Spike Lee, who told VIBE that "Django" was "disrespectful to his ancestors."
"The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" came in third place at $10.8 million while the family comedy "Parental Guidance," which also opened Tuesday, placed fourth with a projected $6 million to $7 million
Quentin Jerome Tarantino (pronunciation: /ˌtærənˈtiːnoʊ/; born March 27, 1963) is an American film director, screenwriter, producer, and actor. His films have been characterized for nonlinear storylines, satirical subject matter and the aestheticization of violence that often results in the exhibition of neo-noir characteristics. Tarantino has been dubbed a "director DJ", comparing his stylistic use of mix-and-match genre and music infusion to the use of sampling a DJ exhibits, morphing a variety of old works to create a new one.
Born in Knoxville, Tennessee, Tarantino grew up an avid film fan and worked in a video rental store whilst training to act. His career began in the late 1980s, when he wrote and directed My Best Friend's Birthday; its screenplay would form the basis for True Romance. In the early 1990s, he began his career as an independent filmmaker with the release of Reservoir Dogs (1992); regarded as a classic and cult hit, it was opined as the "Greatest Independent Film of All Time" by Empire magazine. Its popularity was boosted by the release of his second film, Pulp Fiction (1994), a neo-noir crime film that became a major critical and commercial success, widely regarded as one of the greatest films of all time. Paying homage to 1970s blaxploitation films, Tarantino released Jackie Brown in 1997, an adaptation of the novel Rum Punch.
