Quentin Tarantino (director, USA) go to comments
Developed an audacious fusion of pop culture and independent art house cinema; his films are thrillers that are distinguished as much by their clever, twisting dialogue as their non-linear narrative and outbursts of extreme violence.
Quentin Tarantino IMDB page

What makes him infinitely more interesting than just another flash-in-the-pan filmmaker with a predictable Oedipal drive challenging the codes and conventions of the dominant, parent cinema is that he can’t be categorized as either mainstream or independent.
His style and content, is a glorious and often unruly mix of classic Hollywood, Hong Kong action cinema, comic book and television.
Is a master of film “language”.

Favorite movies list

Pulp Fiction (1994)
The lives of two mob hit men, a boxer, a gangster’s wife, and a pair of diner bandits intertwine in four tales of violence and redemption.

Kill Bill (2003,2004) vol. 1, vol. 2
“Mauvais genre” cinema brought to the level of art; poetry of violence, poetry of motion in the language of film.
Formal perfection with (in vol. 2) substance/emotion.

Revenge is a dish best served cold (old Klingon proverb)

The Hateful Eight (2015)

Django Unchained (2012)

Wait for the creme. (col. Hans Landa to Shosanna).

A voluptuous hubristic uchronia, that feels more alive than history itself!!

Death Proof (2007)
(part of ‘Grindhouse’ anthology film)

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep and I’ve got promises to keep and miles to go before I sleep. Did you hear that butterfly? Miles to go before you sleep.
- (1st sentence is from “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening” by Robert Frost [American poet, 1874-1963], also refered in Telefon [Don Siegel, 1977] Cold War paranoia drama with Charles Bronson!)

All Tarantino’s obsessions mashed together in one gem – film… Not just an anthology / remake / homage to the 70s B-movies, but a flamboyant creation, with a voluptuous and beautiful film language. Formal perfection; outre – but lovable and substantial – characters.
