The film will examine the first 21 years of Tarantino’s career and will include interviews with frequent collaborators including Samuel L. Jackson, John Travolta, Christoph Waltz, Lucy Liu, Zoë Bell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Jamie Foxx, Eli Roth, Robert Forster, Diane Kruger, Michael Madsen and Kerry Washington.
Wood is a co-director on last year’s documentary “21 Years: Richard Linklater.” Both films draw upon the idea that the first 21 years of work defines the career of an artist.
Tarantino’s first film was 1992’s “Reservoir Dogs,” followed by “Pulp Fiction,” “Jackie Brown,” the two “Kill Bill” movies, “Death Proof,” “Inglourious Basterds,” “Django Unchained” and the upcoming “The Hateful Eight.”
“Quentin is the most revolutionary, distinctive director of our time,” said Wood. “There is no shortage of stories from his collaborators about what it takes to get his visionary style to the screen. »

Every Christmas Eve the small sleepy town of Bailey Downs is marred with outbreaks of supernatural tragedy. If the name Bailey Downs sounds familiar to you, you’d be right, as it’s the name of the fictional town featured in Ginger Snaps, a film that the filmmakers were also responsible for.

Uma Thurman is best known for her grungy, cult-status work with Quentin Tarantino, first on Pulp Fiction (1994) as the defiant, chain-smoking sex symbol Mia Wallace, then the revenge-hungry Bride in 2003’s Kill Bill. Her new film, Burnt, released in cinemas today, sees Thurman return as feisty restaurant critic Simone Forth, alongside a decent cast of Hollywood household names including Bradley Cooper, Sienna Miller and Emma Thompson. Here’s our rundown of her five best movie moments.

As the director of ultraviolent movies like Pulp Fiction and Django Unchained, Quentin Tarantino is no stranger to controversy, and he.s certainly in the middle of one right now. Police unions across the country are calling for boycotts of his upcoming western The Hateful Eight after the notoriously vocal filmmaker threw around the term "murderers" at a recent anti-police brutality rally. But now things are straying into creepy, maybe even scary territory as one high-ranking official says the director has a "surprise" on the way. What exactly that surprise is, isn.t clear, but that is certainly an ominous phrasing. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jim Pasco, who is the president of the Fraternal Order of Police, the largest police union in the country with more than 330,000 members, said: Something is in the works, but the element of surprise is the most important element. Something could happen anytime between »
Jasmine screens Saturday, November 7th at 5:15 at The Tivoli Theater as part of the St. Louis International Film Festival. Director/writer Dax Phelan will be in attendance. Ticket information can be found Here
In this gripping psychological thriller, Leonard To (Jason Tobin, Better Luck Tomorrow) struggles to come to terms with the unsolved murder of Jasmine (Grace Huang, The Man With The Iron Fists), his beloved wife. Nearly a year after Jasmine’s death, Leonard finally returns home to Hong Kong. Determined to begin again, he searches for a new job, attends grief-support meetings, and reconnects with a woman from his past (Eugenia Yuan, Revenge Of The Green Dragons). The unsolved nature of Jasmine’s murder — and the Hong Kong police’s seeming indifference to the case — prevents Leonard from attaining true closure, but he appears to be slowly starting life anew. That progress comes to a sudden halt, »

Quentin Tarantino is no stranger to controversy.
Since bursting on the scene with “Reservoir Dogs” in 1992, the video store geek turned cinematic bad boy, has inspired blowback over everything from the use of racial slurs in his films to his penchant for disposing of his characters in gruesome fashion. But nothing has prepared him for the firestorm he’s unleashed over the last few days.
Tarantino’s appearance at an Oct. 24 rally in New York against police brutality led to boycott threats by law enforcement unions of his next film, “The Hateful Eight.”
Tarantino inspired their ire by remarking at the event,”When I see murder I cannot stand by. And I have to call the murdered the murdered and I have to call the murderers the murderers.”
And his comments at the gathering have kicked off a media backlash, landing him in the crosshairs of conservative pundits like Bill »

After a 10 day silence, Quentin Tarantino has finally responded to the police boycott against him and his movies, including his upcoming Christmas Day release The Hateful Eight. His recent comments at a rally protesting police brutality drew the ire of the NYPD, who initially called the boycott. It was soon joined by various other law enforcement agencies all across the country. The director and cult icon certainly angered cops on both coasts. But he doesn't care. And he refuses to apologize or retract his comments.
Quentin Tarantino spoke with The Los Angeles Times about the boycott and all the controversy tied into it. He claims that law enforcement agencies around the country are attempting to 'demonize' him. And that his public statements at the rally have been taken out of context. He sees it as part of a bigger agenda to shut him up and shut him down, along with »
Director Quentin Tarantino is not exactly known for being a delicate flower or for being afraid to speak his mind, which has landed him in hot water more than once. He recently angered the NYPD when he called them murderers while talking about escalating police violence, which led multiple police unions to call for a boycott of his new movie, The Hateful Eight. If you thought Tarantino might apologize or back off at all, you would be very, very wrong. Instead of the apology that many law enforcement agencies demanded, the Pulp Fiction director talked to the Los Angeles Times and clarified that he never said that all police officers are murderers and didn.t mean to imply that. Never one to shy away, he then proceeded to call them out again for trying to intimidate him and take attention off of an important issue. He said: What they.re »
If the hysterical overreaction by police unions across the country weren’t enough of a sign that Quentin Tarantino was right to speak out at last month’s Rise Up October protest, then surely the rumors about Harvey Weinstein’s reaction would be. The distributor may not be chastising Tarantino publicly, but Weinstein is said to be furious with the director for attending the New York rally, where he joined with other marchers in condemning police brutality — all just two months before the Dec. 25 unveiling of Tarantino’s much-anticipated new thriller, “The Hateful Eight.” With box office returns and award nominations waiting to be collected, this was apparently no time to incur a nationwide boycott — or, for that matter, to take a tough public stand on matters of grave moral and sociopolitical importance.
Such controversy is not new to Tarantino. Indeed, the words “such controversy is not new to Tarantino »

Police unions around America have been demanding an apology from Quentin Tarantino, but the director is not backing down in his first public remarks following his controversial comments 10 days ago about police violence.
“All cops are not murderers,” Tarantino, the director of “The Hateful Eight,” told the Los Angeles Times in an interview Tuesday. “I never said that. I never even implied that.” Tarantino said the police groups were trying to “demonize” him.
“What they’re doing is pretty obvious,” he said. “Instead of dealing with the incidents of police brutality that those people were bringing up, instead of examining the problem of police brutality in this country, better they single me out. And their message is very clear. It’s to shut me down. It’s to discredit me. It is to intimidate me. It is to shut my mouth, and even more important than that, it is to »

The last two trips director James Ponsoldt made to Sundance it was with two excellent dramas: Smashed and The Spectacular Now. This year, Ponsoldt returns with the often moving and consistently funny The End of the Tour. While the director’s latest may not be on par with his past two efforts, that’s not much of a problem considering the level of quality he achieves here. The End of the Tour follows a failed author, »

How serious is the police boycott of Quentin Tarantino and his upcoming Western The Hateful Eight? Serious enough that producer and longtime Quentin Tarantino collaborator Harvey Weinstein wants the director to issue some sort of apology. According to Page Six, Weinstein is furious with Tarantino, and believes his outspoken personality has ruined The Hateful Eight's chances at Oscar glory along with its potential at the box office.
Tarantino first drew the ire of the NYPD after he appeared at an NYC rally on October 24 to protest police brutality, calling the cops 'murderers'. Soon after, the NYPD called a boycott of Quentin Tarantino and all his movies, including The Hateful Eight, which opens in limited release this Christmas before going wider in January. Soon, the Lapd joined the boycott, and was followed by the National Association of Police Organizations and the New Jersey State Policemen's Benevolent Association. Supporters are asked »
The 50-year-old BBC broadcaster - who performed the salsa to Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' on the show last night - told Digital Spy: "The two standing out - in terms of they've had no previous experience but are brilliant - are Katie Derham and Anita Rani.
"And my friend Carol Kirkwood was absolutely certain she'd be first out. She's got a little bit more confidence every time I see her and she's enjoying it a lot more.
"Carol's been a revelation. At the beginning she was feeling like she would be placed last but actually she's done more than held her own."
The BBC Radio Two DJ admitted that while he'd love to win, The Wanted's Jay McGuiness, Country File's Rani and former contestant Olympian »
Born just days before Halloween, filmmaker Michael Dougherty has always had an affinity for the spooky holiday. After breaking into the business by co-writing X2: X-Men United, Urban Legends: Bloody Mary and Superman Returns with Dan Harris, Michael Dougherty set out on his own to make his directorial debut with the horror anthology Trick 'r Treat, long before the format was back en vogue. Despite getting rave reviews from the festival circuit in 2007 and 2008, Warner Bros. decided to forgo a theatrical release, instead debuting it on DVD back in 2009. It became an immediate cult classic, with some starting annual traditions of watching Trick 'r Treat every year on October 31.
Trick 'r Treat tells four separate stories, all set on Halloween night in the same town, as it's revealed how each of these completely different characters' stories are connected to one another. Lurking in the shadows for each of these tales is Sam, »

Director Quentin Tarantino is no stranger to controversy. Normally, however, that controversy surrounds his films, and not the man himself. The Pulp Fiction director has recently found himself in hot water with the NYPD regarding comments he made during a march to protest police violence. Now his words have reverberated across the country, and the Lapd currently is backing New York.s call to boycott Tarantino.s films. Over this past weekend Tarantino was part of a march and rally put on by a group called RiseUpOctober to protest police brutality. When he spoke to the assembled crowd, he referred to some of the deaths that have occurred as "murders." To add insult to injury, the protest occurred on the heels of an NYPD officer being killed while on duty. This led to the NYPD calling for a boycott of Tarantino.s movies. Now, according to MSNBC that call has »
Football documentaries - they're a funny old game. Today's fly-on-the-wall peeks into the lives of Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo may have marked a welcome return of the genre - but compared to mud-and-studs docs of old, they're as over-polished and blemish-free as one of David Beckham's Armani suits.
And so ahead of Ryan Giggs, Gary Neville and co's new BBC documentary series Out of Their League, let's reminisce about some classic football programmes - when the beautiful game felt like less a Nike advert, more like an episode of Bullseye.
1. Graham Taylor gets the sack
After an abysmal 1992 European Championships, England manager needed some positive PR, so the Fa allowed camera crews to follow him round during the entire 1994 World Cup qualification campaign for An Impossible Job.
Whoops: this spectacularly backfired for old Turnip Head, as England were knocked out. But not before Taylor effed and jeffed his way through every single match, »
