Early Tarantino

After scripting True Romance, Quentin Tarantino took the movie world by storm with his first movie, Reservoir Dogs (1992). The non-linear narrative, unorthodox dialogue and ultra violence created an audacious new type of movie-making which was original, laconic and cool. But it was his second film, Pulp Fiction (1994) that made him the most exciting director in the world, and this standout classic, with arguably the best movie script ever written, is now considered one of the greatest movies ever made. It seemed an impossible film to follow, but for many Kill Bill: Vol 1 (2003) was an even better movie, a deliriously exciting thriller in which he paid homage to spaghetti westerns, Kung fu movies and Japanese manga.

In anticipation of his new movie Once Upon A Time in Hollywood, these three outstanding movies are presented at Depot through July & August, beginning with Reservoir Dogs.
