Quentin Tarantino (born 1963) is considered the enfant terrible of contemporary cinema. From his outstanding debut at the Sundance Film Festival with 'Reservoir Dogs' (1992) to his most recent controversial war film 'Inglourious Basterds' (2009), Tarantino has created a fascinating, violent, and highly personal body of work. A self-taught and crazy director who is a complete cinema buff, Tarantino juxtaposes disparate genres within each of his films, deconstructing the narrative process and building characters saturated in pop culture. His feature films are full of references to undervalued cultural devices and genres such as cheap sensationalist story magazines in 'Pulp Fiction' (1994), blaxploitation films in 'Jackie Brown' (1997) and kung-fu movies in 'Kill Bill' (2003, 2004). Undoubtedly a stylistic innovator and gifted dialogue writer, Tarantino continues to push the boundaries of the Hollywood movie.
