"After working as a video clerk while studying acting, he used the sale of an early screenplay to raise money for his first directorial venture, Reservoir Dogs (1992), a violent heist movie that became a huge success. Noted for his witty dialogue, non-linear narratives and distinctive use of music, he has since blended humour with stylish violence to great effect, and achieved cult status as a director." - Chambers Film Factfinder, 2006

Quentin Tarantino's Fascinating Interview with Henry Louis Gates Jr. on Racism and the N-Word in 'Django Unchained'

Quentin Tarantino's Fascinating Interview with Henry Louis Gates Jr. on Racism and the N-Word in 'Django Unchained' | Quentin Tarantino and His Place in Film History | Scoop.it
The prominent black scholar and cultural critic gets Tarantino to open up and speak to the criticism he and his new film have received.
Justin Anachronism Christian's insight:

Tarantino is also known for his use of racial slurs and epthets in his films. Whenever it's done, it's always in a natural, realistic setting, and further sets a theme for the tone of a character, scene, or even an entire era. It's unapologetic, brash, and highly effective in it's realism. There's no beating around the bush, fanaticism, or surrealism behind, it's just laid plain out as it is to better tell the story.

Justin Anachronism Christian's insight:

This track is just one example of many unique and captivating opening theme music sequences that Tarantino is very well known for. The way he uses music, especially popular and indie music to set up the thematics and moods for different scenes and segments of film also sets him apart in a way from other directors. He uses something that is familiar, and makes it foreign or uses it to bring you closer to a scene. It's just of the many aesthetic devices of Quentin Tarantino.
