In many ways, Tarantino is the paradigmatic 1990s success story: from high school dropout, toiling anonymously in a California video store, taking acting lessons, to world acclaim, with Pulp Fiction as the Grand Prix winner at Cannes.With his first film, Reservoir Dogs, the then 29-year-old became an inspiration for filmmakers even younger than himself on how to produce stylish, subterranean cinema. (Not that his extra-violent imitators, labeled "Tarantino school," could match the wit of his scripts, his talent with actors, and the vivacity, energy, and originality of his shooting style.)Tarantino, turning famous, remains the same manic talker who is obsessed with American pop culture and is endlessly enthusiastic about his favorite movies and moviemakers. Informal, gregarious, accessible, he has been a journalist's dream, for his wonderfully expressive, almost stream-of-consciousness chatter.This collection is the first book of Tarantino interviews to be published. The selections are his most uninhibited, far reaching, and revealing. They demonstrate conclusively that the source of his world-renowned pop-culture dialogue is his own brash, vivid, virtuosic conversation."I realized I didn't want to be an actor," he says. "I wanted to be a director. My favorite actors were character actors and I realized they still had to read for parts. I didn't want to be fifty years old and still reading for parts. I wanted some control over my destiny, and it seemed to me that directors did."Gerald Peary is a film critic and columnist for the Boston Phoenix, a professor of journalism and communications at Suffolk University, and a lecturer at Boston University. He is also Acting Curator of the Harvard University Film Archive....

    Quentin Tarantino ile 2010 yılına kadar yapılmış bir çok röportaj ve söyleşinin düzenlenmiş bir şekilde içinde bulunduğu kitap. Özellikle benim gibi bir Tarantino hayranıysanız kesinlikle elinizde bulunması gereken nadir Türkçe kaynaklardan birisi.

    Lo primero que tengo que decir es que Quentin Tarantino ES mi director de cine favorito. Desde la primera vez que vi Inglorious Basterds, me enamoré de su estilo, sin tener un amplio conocimiento cinematográfico, ni mucha importancia por el mismo. Esto, para mi, habla mucho de lo excelente que es su trabajo, que alguien enajenado del cine no tiene otra opción que apreciar sus películas, por lo excepcionales que son.Dicho esto, este libro es una forma rápida de observar el pensamiento de este director de cine a través de un escogido de entrevistas que el editor tilda de ser las más importantes e interesantes. Para cualquier fanático de cine o de Tarantino, le recomiendo este libro, para que puedan adquirir una nueva perspectiva sobre sus películas, el libro incluye entrevistas de todos sus filmes, desde Reservoir Dogs hasta Django Unchainef, (e incluye entrevistas de sus películas menos aclamadas, Jackie Brown y Desthproof y de las que sólo llevan el crédito de Tarantino como escritor, True Romance y Natural Born Killers) por lo que vemos el punto de vista de la forma en que el creador de las mismas visualiza sus películas. La única falta que le doy a este libro es que al ser un conglomerado de entrevistas por autores variados, no tienen edición alguna y en ocasiones, leemos a Tarantino responder a preguntas repetidas y recibimos las mismas respuestas ocasionalmente. Aunque esto puede servir como ayuda para retener cierta información, leer la misma respuesta tres veces a veces es un poco redundante.Las únicas entrevistas que no llegué a leer fueron las que son pertinentes a True Romance y Natural Born Killers, porque al ser películas sólo escritas por Tarantino y no dirigidas por él, no he alcanzado a ver y algunas entrevistas contienen spoilers sobre las películas, por lo que obvié leer estas entrevistas por el momento dado.

    Ağırlıklı olarak Tarantino'nun Rezervuar Köpekleri ve Pulp Fiction dönemi röportajlarından oluşan kitap yönetmenin ilk dönem düşüncelerini ve yönetmen olmadan önceki video dükkanı günlerini anlamak için güzel. Bir taraftan Tarantino'nun en bilinen özelliklerinden biri olan sinema delisi olduğu ve inanılmaz bir film hafızasının olduğunun da kanıtı söyleşiler içeriyor. Derleyen Peary'nin en başta belirttiği gibi benzer dönemlerde yapılan söyleşiler olması nedeniyle pek çok tekrar olması bazen sıkıcı bir hal alsa da Tarantino gerçekten çok orijinal biri ve onun filmler ve şiddet ile ilişkisini anlamak için güzel bir kaynak. Pek analiz yer almıyor, bu nedenle de Tarantino'yu merak eden herkes tarafından kolayca okunabilir.

    Kitap 1997'de basıldığı için tamamına yakını "Rezervuar Köpekleri" ve "Ucuz Roman" hakkındaki röportajları içeriyor. Tarantino'nun bu filmleriyle ilgili düşünceleri, analizleri ve sinemaya olan bakışını net bir şekilde yansıtıyor. Meraklıları için hazine değerinde..

    I just LOVE Quentin Tarantino. I think he's a film genius. This book is quite obviously interviews that Quentin Tarantino has taken part in, and it just stands out exactly HOW much this man knows about films, and how much he LOVES LOVES LOVES to talk about them, and make them and everything. Some things that did annoy me in this book (although really because it's just a transcript of several interviews you can't really be annoyed with it) I got frustrated that because Quentin is so well versed on every film in the whole world and ones that are no longer in this world he would often butt in or correct and this just got annoying, it's like we understand how smart you are in regard to film.... but then again I see this as a credit to the man too. I would Love to work with him, genius!It also shows a lot of insight into Quentin but then again no insight whatsoever because if you know anything about Quentin his life has turned into some sort of combination of fact and fiction spawned from his over zealous indulgence of every movie ever made. He's a crazy man not only constructing films for others but constructing a life for himself. I love him, I think he's so clever. Love the films, Love the man. Awesome book. I would recommend though after reading this book you tubing interviews with him. The interviews really showcase his amazing intelligence and creativity, and eccentricity.

    Lots of good quotes--one of the best being: "One of the biggest problems with becoming famous is that people stop talking to you and start asking questions." The ebullience of the guy comes through like a megaphone. Actually the only drawback to the book was from the contributing writers--either of the "hip now happening" crowd (like Rolling Stone) or "Tarantino instigates a searching search for a more fundamental reality" (like all the eggheads). Generally the straight interviews were better than the ones with some quotes plus the writers' impressions.

    Quentin Tarantino is a genius. I'm rather disappointed with the book because not all the interviewers got into the camera angles or suspense in his films or those long kind of random dialogues he so much loves to shoot. And those who did so just went over them quickly.

    This book is a bit old and only really examines Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction. Quentin Tarantino is his usual weird self, and the interviews end up being overly pretentious... but informative.
