BIOGRAPHY:

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.


TRIVIA:
  • Has an IQ of 160 despite dropping out of high school.
  • Collects old board games having to do with TV shows like _"I Dream of Jeannie" (1965)_ (qv), _"The Dukes of Hazzard" (1979)_ (qv), _"The A-Team" (1983)_ (qv), etc.
  • Often references numerous attributes of the works of 'Jean-Luc Godard' (qv), particularly in _Pulp Fiction (1994)_ (qv). The disjointed structure of _Pulp Fiction (1994)_ (qv) may itself be an homage to Godard's use of jump cuts in _ bout de souffle (1960)_ (qv) (Breathless), the film that launched the French New Wave of cinema.
  • First noted screenplay was titled "Captain Peachfuzz and the Anchovy Bandit," which was written in 1985.
  • Two of Tarantino's favorite films are _'Manos' the Hands of Fate (1966)_ (which he owns a 35mm copy of) and _Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan (1982)_ (qv), which he references in _Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003)_ (qv).
  • He has called 'Uma Thurman' (qv) his muse.
  • Born in Knoxville, Tennessee, he was raised in Los Angeles.
  • Six of his movies are mentioned in FHM's (DK) 100 Best Male Movies Ever (7 October 2004 issue): _True Romance (1993)_ (qv) at #75, _From Dusk Till Dawn (1996)_ (qv) at #73, _Kill Bill: Vol. 2 (2004)_ (qv) at #26, _Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003)_ (qv) at #25, _Reservoir Dogs (1992)_ (qv) at #11, and _Pulp Fiction (1994)_ (qv) at #1.
