Introduction

Quentin Tarantino returns to the Alamo this spring for QT 7 - a look back at the best films he's programmed over the last six festivals plus some new surprises from his exploitation vault, all in one amazing film-geek smorgasbord! Crime films, trash films, westerns, kung-fu epics, splatter films, mondo films, drug films, lederhosen films - he's shown it all, and there's no champion of cinema's seedy, unsung underbelly quite like Quentin. His programming and detailed, enthusiastic introductions have become a film school in and of themselves.
