Synopsis

Quentin Tarantino is the most exciting and fascinating film director of recent years. Since he exploded onto the scene with the release of Reservoir Dogs, he is one of the few movie makers to combine critical success with box office clout. With more than a hundred interviews with colleagues, close friends and family, author Wensley Clarkson explores the enigmatic cinematic legend in depth. Born in 1963, Tarantino was a film buff from an early age and, determined to join the industry, he studied , wrote scripts and polished his already geekily vast knowledge of all things cinematic by working in a video-store. True Romance's screeplay was sold early on, but it was the dazzling Reservoir Dogs that was to be his first debut and a movie which stunned the world. The hits kept on coming with Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown and Kill Bill. The whole of Tarantino's dazzling career, his motormouth reputation and his latest chiller, Grind House, are revealed in a book which draws on sources close to the director, including Connie, Tarantino's mother.
