Quentin Jerome Tarantino (born March 27, 1963) is an American film director, screenwriter, producer, cinematographer and occasional actor. In the early 1990s, he began his career as an independent filmmaker with films employing nonlinear storylines and the aestheticization of violence. His films include Reservoir Dogs (1992), Pulp Fiction (1994), Jackie Brown (1997), Kill Bill (2003, 2004), Death Proof (2007), Inglourious Basterds (2009), and the upcoming Django Unchained (2013). He has earned an Academy Award, a Golden Globe Award, a BAFTA and the Palme d'Or, as well as Emmy and Grammy nominations.

Three of my favorite Tarantino movies are:

  • Pulp Fiction (1994) with Steve Buscemi, Paul Calderon, Samuel L. Jackson, Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth, Uma Thurman, and Bruce Willis.
  • From Dusk till Dawn (1996) with Harvey Keitel and Michael Parks.
  • Jackie Brown (1997) with Michael Bowen and Samuel L. Jackson.
