Transcript of Quentin Tarantino

Quentin Jerome Tarantino Writing Style Biography Quentin Jerome Tarantino was born on March 27, 1963 to Tony Tarantino and Connie McHugh Tarantino Zastoupil in Knoxville, Tennessee. He is a legendary American film director, screenwriter, producer, cinematographer and occasional actor. In the early 1990s, Tarantino began his career as an independent film maker. The films that he has directed and/or written include: Something common within Quentin Tarantino’s scripts is that they each have multiple storylines. His scripts are also known to have witty, flippant and thought-provoking dialogues. According to Tarantino, a persistent hallmark in all his movies is that there is a different sense of humour in each one.. ...which gets the audience to laugh at things that aren't funny. When there is violence or suggestions of it, it is demonstrated in a “stylishly excessive way.” Presented By:
Ampaguey Tarantino says: “As a writer, I demand the right to write any character in the world that I want to write. I demand the right to be them, I demand the right to think them and I demand the right to tell the truth as I see they are.” Why? I chose this writer because I am in love with Quentin Tarantino’s movies. There is so much passion and thought put into his writing. It is understandable how he instantly became a legend with the release of his first movie. I was thrilled to find out that he writes his movies’ scripts because I admire his witty, dark, non-cliche character dialogues. His style is clever and fresh, which is what I try to achieve with my own work. Reviews James Berardinelli on Pulp Fiction “As was the case in Reservoir Dogs, Tarantino's crisp dialogue sparkles. The vulgarity-laced monologues and conversations ripple with humor and are ripe with points to ponder. Foot massages, hamburgers, comfortable silence, a gold watch, pot bellies, divine intervention, and filthy animals - all these and more receive the writer's attention as he presents meaningless issues in an intensely-fascinating and almost lyrical fashion. Who else (except perhaps David Mamet) can make profanity sound so poetic?” Erika Hernandez on Kill Bill Vol. 1 “Like Tarantino's self-proclaimed first, second, and third films, (Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, and Jackie Brown), Kill Bill, Vol. 1 is almost wholly derivative. You have to remember, though, that reveling in commentary is the original beast of Tarantino cinema. That, above all else, is his game, which in the end is no game at all. It is the laborious craft of "ripping off" other stylistic expressions and reassembling them—and in turn creating something utterly new. It is postmodernism, and QT has used it to take his place in the realm of the Auteur.” Michael Peters on Tarantino’s movies in general “What Tarantino may be most renowned for, however, is his focus on highly stylized modes of speech. Greatly influenced by the likes of film noir/pulp fiction writers Dashiell Hammond, Raymond Chandler and Elmore Leonard, Tarantino elicits vivid responses from his audiences by incorporating mundane banter about ubiquitous popular culture subject matters.” Reservoir Dogs (1992)

Jackie Brown (1997)
