Quentin Tarantino on Letting Your Characters Take Over

This is an interesting clip of Quentin Tarantino trying to dissect his signature style of dialogue on Charlie Rose.

Tarantino is always an interesting example, because he regularly has scenes where the action is compelling the story forward, but the dialogue has little or nothing to do with what’s actually happening (consider the “Royale with Cheese” car scene in Pulp Fiction). If you take the dialogue away, you still have an action-packed story, it’s just not as colorful.
