Our grandparents had Hitchcock, and now we have Tarantino. Every generation has their defining filmmakers and Tarantino happens to be one of them for our generation. You can talk about some of his greatest works and the story behind them, his work ethics, how he came to be a director, etc. The possibilities are endless.
You can also write about another filmmaker if there’s someone else you’re more passionate about.
Would be interesting to explore the reasons for Tarantino's success and if they are the same today than when he first started. What are the key elements of his filmmaking that make him so different? Also, I've heard that Tarantino said he would stop after his 10th film (he has been around for many years now yet has only made 7 films, the 8th being in prepraration - what does that show? quality over quantity?) to avoid repeating his style over an over again until audiences get tired and he makes a bad film (the case of many directors). what does that show about him? – Rachel Elfassy Bitoun8 years ago
"When people ask me if I went to film school I tell them, 'no, I went to films.'" - QT I think that quote says the most about his success in creating truely fresh and original work. For me, his greatest skill is not his ability to come up with new ideas, but rather his masterful ability to seamlessly weave together myriad dramatic and cinematic innovations from the past 100+ years into beautiful film remixes. You can tell through his work that he absolutely adors movies and everything that they are. – Paris Yee8 years ago
Good lord please for the love of Christ don't let Tarantino be considered the defining voice of our generation. I mean he's a great film maker but the VYP he is not. He's effective, he's profitable and well regarded by critics and audience alike. He's practically become his own trope and that's an interesting enough article. – wolfkin8 years ago
