Pocket Essentials is a dynamic series of books that are concise, lively, and easy to read. Packed with facts as well as expert opinions, each book has all the key information you need to know about such popular topics as film, television, cult fiction, history, and more. Not just a director, but a rabid film buff as well, Tarantino is at the vanguard of a new breed of movie directors so steeped in the lore of films and other media that it is difficult to separate personal expression from their copious allusions to films from the past. This Pocket Essential covers in detail not only Tarantino's directorial successes, but also the films he has written and appeared in. Also taken into consideration are Tarantino's writings, TV appearances, and his future projects.
Minireview: This book is one that should be at arm's length on every QT fan's desk. A tiny little book that fits between all those Pearys and Bernards, the Dawsons and Woods. A book that can not stand on its own, but is a very sensible addition to what is already available on the market.
