His mother took him to the cinema from an early age, he saw films like Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein which was a major inspirationThe Wild Bunch at age 6, Carnal Knowledge at age 8 and Deliverance at age 9. From these early introductions to cinema, Tarantino fell in love with the movies and went at every opportunity.
At the age of 22, he landed a job at the Manhattan Beach Video Archives, a now defunct video rental store in Manhattan Beach, California where he and fellow movie buffs like Roger Avary spent all day watching, discussing and recommending films to customers. He made his first unfinished film in'My Best Friend's Birthday', written with acting class friend Craig Hamann, and followed this up by writing his first script, 'True Romance' a year later.
During this period, he was attending acting classes and put together a CV of his non-existent acting experience which included a role in Jean Luc Godard's 'King Lear' because nobody in Hollywood would have heard of the film or director and Dawn of the Dead by George A.
Romero because he resembled a biker in one of the scenes. His role in 'King Lear' was actually listed in Leonard Maltin's video guide.
He decided to use this money to make his third script, Reservoir Dogs on 16mm and in black and white with his friends in the leading roles. It was around this point that Tarantino left the video store to do rewrites for CineTel, a small Hollywood production company - it was at this time he met Lawrence Bender and struck lucky; Bender was attending acting classes with Peter Flood, who was divorced from acting teacher Lily Parker and knew Harvey Keitel from the Actors Studio.
Keitel saw the script and was impressed enough to raise some more finance, act in the film and help Tarantino cast the main roles. At this point, producers Monte Hellman and Richard Gladstein also joined the project. InTarantino filmed some scenes at Sundance with him playing the role of Mr.
White and Steve Buscemi playing Mr. These scenes were shown to various film people to comment on and the group containing Terry Gilliam were particularly impressed. Reservoir Dogs finally premiered at Sundance '92 before appearing at various film festivals around the World. Miramax picked the film up for distribution after Sundance and it was released in the US later in and in the UK on January 8 Tarantino traveled around the various festivals in promoting his film and writing his next script, 'Pulp Fiction' which went on to win the Palme D'Or at Cannes in Apart from having written the screenplay he also co-produced and starred as Ritchie Gecko side by side with George Clooney.
Being a fan and friend of the american top-seller author Elmore Leonard, in he decided to make the movie 'Jackie Brown' based upon Leonard's novel Rum Punch. After a few years of hiatus, he returned to the big screen in with his magnum opus Kill Bill, which turned out to be enough material for two movies, so it got split into Volume 1 and Volume 2, released about a year apart.
The film rekindled a love for Asian and exploitation movies among consumers worldwide and became an instant classic. That double episode, titled Grave Danger, got high ratings and featured many Tarantino signature tricks and interesting cameos.
Inhe made Grindhouse together with his long time friend Robert Rodriguez. The double feature, a throwback to drive-in exploitation cinema, consisted of Death Proof, directed by Quentin, and Planet Terror, directed by Robert. The movie was hyped, but was financially insuccessful. Nevertheless, it gained a cult following and just like Kill Bill, it led to re-releases of old exploitation films.
The Grindhouse style has since been numerously replicated in low budget movies and commercials.K-BILLY: Joe Egan and Gerry Rafferty were a duo known as Stealer's Wheel when they recorded this Dylanesque, pop, bubble-gum favorite from April of ; that reached up to number five, as K-Billy's Super Sounds of the Seventies [weekend] continues.
