Quentin Tarantino is the most exciting and fascinating film director of recent years. Since he exploded onto the scene with the release of qReservoir Dogsq, he is one of the few movie makers to combine critical success with box office clout. With more than a hundred interviews with colleagues, close friends and family, author Wensley Clarkson explores the enigmatic cinematic legend in depth. Born in 1963, Tarantino was a film buff from an early age and, determined to join the industry, he studied, wrote scripts and polished his already geekily vast knowledge of all things cinematic by working in a video store. True Romance's screenplay was sold early on, but it was the dazzling qReservoir Dogsq that was to be his debut and a movie which stunned the world. The hits kept on coming with qPulp Fictionq, qJackie Brownq and qKill Billq. The whole of Tarantino's dazzling career, his motor mouth reputation and his latest chiller, Grind House, are revealed in a book which draws on sources close to the director, including Connie, Tarantino's mother. Bold, pioneering and always unpredictable, Quentin Tarantino is the ultimate movie director with a fascinating story. Discover it all with this gripping account of his life and times.Wensley Clarkson ... He got to know the owners and the clerks. ... in black, driving his clappedout Honda Civic and dining mainly at such fastfood emporiums as Pollo Loco and Jack in the Box, Quentin fitted the role of movie geek to perfection .
