Few writers have a style quite as distinctive as Quentin Tarantino. He’s eccentric to be sure, but also a film genius. He’s the writer/director behind such classics as Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, and Kill Bill. Django Unchained, was one of the top scripts on the 2011 Black List.
A bit of trivia about Tarantino films: Every feature film he’s written features a scene in which at least three characters are all pointing their guns at each other.

When I was on “The View” (1997), Barbara Walters was asking me about the blood and stuff, and I said, ‘Well, you know, that’s a staple of Japanese cinema.’ And then she came back,’But this is America.’ And I go, ‘I don’t make movies for America. I make movies for planet Earth.
I hope to give you at least 15 more years of movies. I’m not going to be this old guy that keeps cranking them out. My plan is to have a theater by that time in some small town and I will be the manager – this crazy old movie guy.
