Few directors exploded on the scene with the force of Quentin Tarantino back in 1992 with Reservoir Dogs. And even fewer directors saw their reputations plummet so fast so soon thereafter. But fewer still have seen their stock rise again so dramatically and definitively. Pulp Fiction consolidated Tarantino's standing as one of the most exciting filmmakers to emerge from post-film school Hollywood. But Jackie Brown divided both audiences and critics. Tarantino lapsed into a mysterious and intriguing silence, only to emerge after a long hiatus with the two part Kill Bill, which reaffirmed his stature as one of the best living directors. Not just a filmmaker, but a rabid film buff as well, Tarantino is at the vanguard of a new breed of movie director, artists so steeped in the lore of films and other media that it is difficult to segregate personal expression from their copious allusions to films from the past and their salutes to beloved directors. But what's important is that Tarantino speaks to a new kind of filmgoer, otherwise ignored by mainstream reviewers and pundits. This Pocket Essentials covers in detail not only Tarantino's five directorial efforts to date, but also the films he has written, appeared in, and polished. Also taken into consideration are Tarantino's writings, his TV appearances, his festival seminars, and his future and "lost" projects.

Here, in his own colorful, slangy words, is the true American Dream saga of a self-proclaimed “film geek,” with five intense years working in a video store, who became one of the most popular, recognizable, and imitated of all filmmakers. His dazzling, movie-informed work makes Quentin Tarantino’s reputation, from his breakout film, Reservoir Dogs (1992), through Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003) and Kill Bill: Vol. 2 (2004), his enchanted homages to Asian action cinema, to his rousing tribute to guys-on-a-mission World War II movie, Inglourious Basterds (2009). For those who prefer a more mature, contemplative cinema, Tarantino provided the tender, very touching Jackie Brown (1997). A masterpiece—Pulp Fiction (1994). A delightful mash of unabashed exploitation and felt social consciousness—his latest opus, Django Unchained (2012). From the beginning, Tarantino (b. 1963)—affable, open, and enthusiastic about sharing his adoration of movies—has been a journalist’s dream. Quentin Tarantino: Interviews, revised and updated with twelve new interviews, is a joy to read cover to cover because its subject has so much interesting and provocative to say about his own movies and about cinema in general, and also about his unusual life. He is frank and revealing about growing up in Los Angeles with a single, half-Cherokee mother, and dropping out of ninth grade to take acting classes. Lost and confused, he still managed a gutsy ambition: young Quentin decided he would be a filmmaker. Tarantino has conceded that Ordell (Samuel L. Jackson), the homicidal African American con man in Jackie Brown, is an autobiographical portrait. “If I hadn’t wanted to make movies, I would have ended up as Ordell,” Tarantino has explained. “I wouldn’t have been a postman or worked at the phone company. . . . I would have gone to jail.”

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 screenplay was sold early on, but it was the dazzling "Reservoir Dogs" that was to be his 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 motor mouth 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. Bold, pioneering and always unpredictable, Quentin Tarantino is the ultimate movie director with a fascinating story. Discover it all with this gripping account of his life and times.

Known for their violence and prolific profanity, including free use of the n-word, the films of Quentin Tarantino, like the director himself, chronically blurt out in polite company what is extremely problematic even when deliberated in private. Consequently, there is an uncomfortable and often awkward frankness associated with virtually all of Tarantino's films, particularly when it comes to race and blackness. Yet beyond the debate over whether Tarantino is or is not racist is the fact that his films effectively articulate racial anxieties circulating in American society as they engage longstanding racial discourses and hint at emerging trends. This radical racial politics—always present in Tarantino's films but kept very much on the quiet—is the subject of Race on the QT. Adilifu Nama concisely deconstructs and reassembles the racial dynamics woven into Reservoir Dogs, True Romance, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill: Vol. 1, Kill Bill: Vol. 2, Death Proof, Inglourious Basterds, and Django Unchained, as they relate to historical and current racial issues in America. Nama's eclectic fusion of cultural criticism and film analysis looks beyond the director's personal racial attitudes and focuses on what Tarantino's filmic body of work has said and is saying about race in America symbolically, metaphorically, literally, impolitely, cynically, sarcastically, crudely, controversially, and brilliantly.

Django Unchained is certainly Quentin Tarantino's most commercially-successful film and is arguably also his most controversial. Fellow director Spike Lee has denounced the representation of race and slavery in the film, while many African American writers have defended the white auteur. The use of extremely graphic violence in the film, even by Tarantino's standards, at a time when gun control is being hotly debated, has sparked further controversy and has led to angry outbursts by the director himself. Moreover, Django Unchained has become a popular culture phenomenon, with t-shirts, highly contentious action figures, posters, and strong DVD/BluRay sales. The topic (slavery and revenge), the setting (a few years before the Civil War), the intentionally provocative generic roots (Spaghetti Western and Blaxploitation) and the many intertexts and references (to German and French culture) demand a thorough examination. Befitting such a complex film, the essays collected here represent a diverse group of scholars who examine Django Unchained from many perspectives.
