Re-imagined Tarantino screenplay covers in the style of a set of Penguin books.
Playboy interviews Quentin Tarantino about Django Unchained, and other topics.
Update: From Arthur in the comments, Deadline has some outtakes from Quentin’s interview with Mike Fleming.
Variety has a pretty long (for them) article about Quentin Tarantino’s directing style. Its an interesting inside look at his methods and how the actors involved perceive them.
“The first thing he does is clear the entire set of all crew, and you just run the scene until you’ve got it down, and everyone feels their movement and behavior are natural in the space,” Roth says. “His movies are so detailed and beautifully composed, you feel like he has a graphic novel in his head. But it’s the opposite. All the camerawork is determined by the actors.”
Interesting thread started over on Reddit about what order you’d have your frind watch Tarantino’s films if they had never seen one before.
Consensus seems to be Pulp Fiction first, and Death Proof last – which I agree with. Love the irony that most everybody would introduce his films out of order considering that out of order film sequencing is the single most identifying trait of a Tarantino film.
Even though he only wrote it, I’d also throw True Romance into the first half of his films. Its a great story and very much feels like a Tarantino film even though he didnt direct it.
The drink also benefited from a throw-away line of a bar banter in Quentin Tarantino’s 2007 thriller, “Death Proof.”
Playing the role of a barman in his own film, the director gives a round of Chartreuse shots to a well-oiled group.
When asked what they are drinking, Tarantino replies: “Chartreuse. The only liquor so good they named a colour after it.”
“Tarantino’s film created an incredible buzz,” he says, noting that workers had been putting in extra hours to bottle as much of the green stuff as possible.
A positive review of Hobo With A Shotgun from We Got This Covered.
The dialogue is intentionally bad, but at the same time, it’s quite quotable. And who a lot of fun. Hauer’s performance is pitch perfect. He knows the film is walking a fine line between a joke and satire, and he matches that intention with a fury.
The audience at Sundance also loved the film.
UPDATE: The Hobo With A Shotgun DVD is now available.
And if you don’t already have it, pick up the Grindhouse special edition DVD.
