The latest book on Quentin Tarantino's films is a very good companion for any fan. Edwin Page discusses each of the eight films which Tarantino has written, directed, or both - in an attempt to find out how the former video store clerk has realised his fantasy and become one of the world's most successful and well-known directors. He examines inspirations and influences, identifies similarities, explores QT's style and delives a serious study that entertains and informs the reader.
Minireview: Page's book is a quick glance over Tarantino's films from literary studies perspective. A good companion if you want to check out approaches on how to look at the films. Everyone who hasn't read the indispensible trio Bernard-Holm-Smith yet, or everyone who just wants to read a simple, fast and uncomplicated analysis of his films, should ca nit, but the book just is not really more than that.
