In case anyone isn't sure, this is an episode of a TV show of interviews with film personalities, by Elvis Mitchell. I'm honestly not sure I knew him, or had even heard of him, before watching this. His guest in this is Tarantino, and he has a lot to say. Some of it is relatively obscure, and if you don't have a reasonable basic knowledge of classic motion pictures, at least a little of this may go over your head. This is intended for the viewer who wants to know more about him as a cinephile and as someone who creates features, himself. The talk is very professional in tone(without it being in a way that completely alienates those less into it, though I could imagine various people calling it pseudo-intellectual), with no gossip and not a single personal anecdote that is just for the sake of the story itself. He goes into fearless directors, names his top three favorite comedic performances, and melodrama. There are relevant clips of movies inter-cut, as well as a still photo or a few, and apart from that, this is kept in a nice, simple setup, and doesn't feel edited. A lot of this is fast, partially on account of the speed at which Quentin speaks. I recommend this mainly to critics and fans, of the guy as well as the medium as a whole. 7/10
