    Reservoir Dogs True Romance Jackie Brown Pulp Fiction Kill Bill Hateful Eight everyone has seen these movies or at least some of them I hopeFilled with photographs capturing some of the iconic movie scenes and also some shots from behind the scenes this book is a great addition to Tarantino's fans' bookshelves It provides an intimate insight into Tarantino's background his beginnings and inspiration for each of his movies including his latest Once Upon a Time in Hollywood not my favourite of his movies but still worth seeing Many thanks to uarto Publishing for an e copy in exchange for an honest review

    Listen I'm also a Tarantino fangirl I think the man's a genius and needs to be applauded and celebrated and all that but the first half of this book is just way way too much and would probably make the master himself cringe Nathan bombards the reader with cascades of celebatory adjectives maximum praise and superlatives and then some superlatives All of this stands as fluffy word material between an admittedly fun collection of photographs film stills and movie posters and while the text contains some interesting anecdotes and uotes the content remains superficial At some point the tone slightly changes and becomes a little held back which does the book good Nathan tackles all of Tarantino's movies and screenplays which could make for a fascinating panorama but as this is a short book there is not much depth or structure to the analysis I also became suspicious of the uality of the information given eg Nathan maintains that the storyline and name of Django's wife Broomhilda are a nod to the Brothers Grimm when it is of course a reference to The Nibelungenlied a fact Dr King Schultz the dentist turned bounty hunter from Düsseldorf am Rhein even explains in the movie Maybe I went into this with wrong expectations though This is of a coffee table book and it's fun to look at but does not offer substantial insights

    You don’t have to like uentin Tarantino or love any of his movies to enjoy this book If you love movies and how they come to be made you’ll appreciate this insight into the career of this talented film makerA book full of pictures with a clear and concise commentary on the beginnings of Tarantino’s inspiration and early work Then each film is detailed in terms of motivation ideas and cast issues It is clear he never sold his soul to Hollywood neither did he conform to their model or financial considerationsA rare talent who regardless of whether embraced or embarrassing congratulated or criticised and dismissed Tarantino is a force and a real fan of cinema Worth reading purely for its use of photographs but also in my opinion the text is informative balanced and entertaining Further as it speaks about each film individually in its concepts cast and collaborations it gives some sense into how movies are made from script to screen studio pressures and casting valuesI was thoroughly entertained by this book and for those films I had previously watched gained deeper clarity and appreciation I was also pleased to read of the tension in his work criticism not just film critics paid for opinions I liked the fact others defended him and I hope this openness while allow others to come to the work with fresh eyesThis is a must for those who love their cinema and appreciate small details that enrich the viewing experience better Whether it is the choice of voices care in location or trouble to bring coldness to a scene

    uentin Tarantino The Iconic Filmmaker and His Work from Ian Nathan is a very good overview of T's career up to and including Once Upon A TimeFor the Tarantino fan the biggest selling point for this book is the layout and the number of both iconic and less common pictures Tarantino is such a visual director that even in depth or academic books need plenty of photographs A book like this aimed at popular readership demands large full color pictures and a dynamic look Nathan delivers on this uite wellThe text is also a positive for a book of this sort It is not just gossip and innuendo in fact what gossip that is brought up generally is to help illustrate a phase in Tarantino's development as a filmmaker rather than just to share gossip Like Tarantino himself getting the story of his life and career can be like putting a puzzle together What he or an associate might say at one time will often be contradicted or modified at another time What Nathan does for the casual fan of Tarantino's is to take all these pieces and form them into a relatively coherent narrative So while there is little new information here if any there is a very welcome uncluttering of that information Plus his is simply an interesting story to read even if it isn't all new and differentDefinitely recommended for both casual and serious fans of Tarantino as well as those who might have shied away from his work because they think they might be offended this at least shows that an intent to offend isn't really there to speak of though it isn't exactly avoided either I think that Nathan's writing is informative enough that it will also be a welcome addition for students of film as long as they remember that any analysis here is secondary to the book's purpose I admit I probably would not have carried this into one of my film classes when I was in school but I would probably have mentioned it if something in it fit into a class discussion I will say that my rating is based on it doing what it set out to do very well as compared to rating it based on some book it never pretends to beReviewed from a copy made available by the publisher via NetGalley

    The walls of my office are papered with Tarantino movie posters I have a Reservoir Dogs tattoo My daughter’s name is uentin I am a Tarantino fan And because I’m such a fan this is exactly the right and wrong book for me The design of the book is pretty simple cover Tarantino’s oeuvre film by film on the way to a predetermined conclusion about the director’s obvious generation defining brilliance And with this happy design at hand Nathan delivers an updated hagiography of Hollywood’s most exposed auteur Sticking to writing casting and production history Nathan avoids anything like critical analyses of the films he writes about leaving the reader with whatever the prose version of an infomercial is This is a particular sticking point with me for Nathan never actually interviewed Tarantino himself for background on what he was writing So the uotes he attributes to T and Bender and Avery and Jackson are gleaned from interviews and articles from popular outlets meaning that this is twice removed from its purported subject and then also made of the most flattering parts of those removed sources Add to this the jealousy roiling inside me “No he’s my favorite” and the surfeit of typos everyone at White Lion needs to sit on the naughty stool until they apologize and I found myself rooting against Nathan by the time I finished This book delivers exactly what it sets out to deliver; hard core fans are advised to pass

    I have been a fan of uentin Tarantino for over 20 years Kill Bill Vol 1 is my favourite film as an adult and I learned a great deal from this book I was too young to see his first films at release and missed out on most of the controversy surrounding his work but was pleased to revisit just how revolutionary T has been for the film industryI do feel this a book for real fans and not just those with a passing interest as there felt like a number of references to events and people I just didn’t get making some of the early story uite hard to keep up with but I loved the behind the scenes photos and insights into the filmsThere could have been discussion about his controversy; Uma’s near death experience during Vol 2 being blamed solely on T Margot Robbie’s lack of dialogue in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood for example which I felt was skimmed over uickly Harvey Weinstein got of a critiue but overall a wonderful retrospective of some remarkable filmsI was given access to this book pre release via Net Galley in exchange for my honest feedback
