Melanie C is shown in a Chinatown, dressed in a red cheongsam and black pants with her hair in a long ponytail with red streaks.
Cimino's chaotic influence is all over the Showdown at the Blue Leaves. Totally reminiscent of the Chinese restaraunt shoot-out from Year of the Dragon, one of Tarantino's favorite films.
Mentioned in a review of The Wrestler as another movie in which Mickey Rourke has appeared.
Mentioned by Mickey Rourke as one of the three hardest movies he has ever done when an interview with him is shown in a montage of interviews.
The shots and positon of Django firing at Candie's men while protecting Broomhilda echo White protecting Tracy during the restaurant shootout in Michael Cimino's film.
