In January of 1992, Reservoir Dogs (1992) 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. Two years later, he followed up Dogs success with _Pulp Fiction (1994) which premiered at the Cannes film festival, winning the coveted Palme D'Or Award. At the 1995 Academy Awards, it was nominated for the best picture, best director and best original screenplay. Tarantino and writing partner 'Roger Avary' came away with the award only for best original screenplay. In 1995, Tarantino directed one fourth of the anthology _Four Rooms (1995) with friends and fellow auteurs 'Alexandre Rockwell', 'Robert Rodriguez (I)' and 'Allison Anders'. The film opened on December 25th in the United States to very weak reviews. Tarantino's next film was _From Dusk Till Dawn (1996), a vampire/crime story which he wrote and co-starred with 'George Clooney'. The film did fairly well theatrically.

  • In the last Sight & Sound Greatest Films Poll (2002), he listed his Top Ten films as: _Il buono, il brutto, il cattivo. (1966)_ (qv) (aka "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly," Leone), _Rio Bravo (1959)_ (qv) (Hawks), _Taxi Driver (1976)_ (qv) (Scorsese), _His Girl Friday (1940)_ (qv) (Hawks), _Rolling Thunder (1977)_ (qv) (Flynn), _They All Laughed (1981)_ (qv) (Bogdanovich), _The Great Escape (1963)_ (qv) (J. Sturges), _Carrie (1976)_ (qv) (De Palma), _Coffy (1973)_ (qv) (Hill), _Dazed and Confused (1993)_ (qv) (Linklater), _Tian xia di yi quan (1973)_ (aka "Five Fingers of Death," Chang) and _Hi Diddle Diddle (1943)_ (qv) (Stone).
  • As a child, one of his favorite movies was _Bud Abbott Lou Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948)_ (qv). He credits the film with helping him learn genre distinctions.
  • Is spoofed in the short film _Let's Get Real! (1999)_ (qv), which contains several satirical references to _Pulp Fiction (1994)_ (qv).
  • Is a huge fan of the Half-Life computer game series, and has considered possibilities of directing a movie adaptation.
  • Considers two of his best friends to be 'Paul Thomas Anderson' (qv) and 'Sofia Coppola' (qv).
  • Was at one point in his life considering to become a novelist. He said that he tried writing two chapters of a novel about his experiences working at the Video Archives in Hermosa Beach. As can be immediately seen, novelistic narrative techniques bear a strong influence on his distinct filmmaking style.
  • Cites his influences as 'Martin Scorsese' (qv), 'Brian De Palma' (qv), 'Sergio Leone (I)' (qv), and 'Jean-Luc Godard' (qv).
  • He is a good friend of 'Robert Rodriguez (I)' (qv).
