Quentin Tarantino : The Man, the Myths and the Movies Hardback

4 out of 5 (1 rating)


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.

Review by

a well written and engrossing book about one of the true artists of the modern movie genre. very humourous, and sometimes controversial, for those a fan of, or wanting to learn about the man behind the camera this is great insight into the personal life of a man who can only be described as a character.and interesting facts about how aspects of his life were translated into his movies.only shame was the fact that photos were centered around dogs, and none on pulp fiction or kill bill.
