Mar 27, 1963
Actor, Director, Producer and Writer
Quentin Jerome Tarantino is an American film director, screenwriter, producer and actor. His films have been characterized by non-linear storylines, satirical subject matter, and an aestheticization of violence that often results in the exhibition of neo-noir characteristics. He has been dubbed a "director DJ"; his stylistic use of mix-and-match genre and music infusion, morphing a variety of old works to create a new one, has been compared to the use of sampling in DJ exhibits. Tarantino grew up an avid film fan and worked in a video rental store while training to act. His career began in the late 1980s, when he wrote and directed My Best Friend's Birthday, the screenplay of which formed the basis for True Romance. In the early 1990s, he began his career as an independent filmmaker with the release of Reservoir Dogs in 1992; regarded as a classic and cult hit, it was called the "Greatest Independent Film of All Time" by Empire. Its popularity was boosted by the release in 1994 of his second film, Pulp Fiction, a neo-noir crime film that became a major critical and commercial success and is widely regarded as one of the greatest films of all time.
