Personal Quote:

There's my realer-than-real movies like Reservoir Dogs (1992). And then there's my movie-movies. And Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003) is definitely one of those. It's the movies that Jules and Vince (from Pulp Fiction (1994)) would go and see...I always thought of Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003) as my Apocalypse Now (1979) and that House Of Blue Leaves is my 'Ride Of The Valkyries' helicopter sequences.

Trivia:

Despite the constant comparison between them amongst fans, he considers fellow director Paul Thomas Anderson to be one of his best friends. In fact Tarantino has praised Anderson's work, calling him a "filmmaking artist." Tarantino is also close friends with Sofia Coppola. See more »

Trademark:

Often uses an unconventional storytelling device in his films, such as retrospect (Reservoir Dogs (1992)), non-linear (Pulp Fiction (1994)), or "chapter" format (_Kill Bill: Vol.1 ( 2003)_). See more »
