Rainer Werner Fassbinder
Of course, filmmakers borrow from each other, but that's not White's gripe. The issue here is that QT was being heralded as the most creative director on the planet at the time, and though he credited several people (including one of the stars of City On Fire) for having served him as inspirations, he failed to give credit to Ringo Lam, the writer/director of the film that he borrowed the most from during the making of Reservoir Dogs.
Is QT talented? Absolutely. It just would have been nice if he had been confident enough in his talent to share credit where credit was due. But... this was very early in his career and he had not yet developed that confidence. He does appear to have it in spades now though, and that is a very good thing.
