Quentin Tarantino is perhaps one of the best famous movie directors in Hollywood. He is the one who directed Pulp Fiction, Inglorious Basterds, Kill Bill and many more box office hits. Quentin Tarantino began his movie career in the 1990s as an independent film maker with films employing non linear storylines and an aestheticism of violence. His movies are generally characterized by stylistic influences from grindhouse kung fu, and spaghetti western films.

Quentin Tarantino has created a unique style that is easily recognizable, combining styles from his favorite genres into brand new mash ups, making him one of the more recent true Auteurs. Quentin Tarantino expresses his films exactly from his point of view. In Kill Bill, he combined Sonny Chiba style Kung Fu films and spaghetti westerns. Quentin Tarantino is the first to tell people that he is heavily inspired, in plot and style by his favorite movies, yet he still manages to create a whole new perspective on things. His body of work features unique humor, action, interpersonal touch, and fast paced, pop culture laden dialogue. Quentin Tarantino has created some of the best most memorable dialogue lines ever heard in cinema.

Although he is a famous director, Quentin Tarantino wanted to start off his movie career as an actor, not behind the camera. It seems that he is much better behind the camera, rather in front of it. More recently, he has been accused that all his films are strikingly similar and that he resorts to stereotypes. Precisely this stereotype is what makes the movies of Quentin Tarantino so well acclaimed. His most recent work is Inglorious Basterds, a fictional story of two plots to assassinate the Nazi Germany political leadership, one planned by a young French Jewish cinema proprietor, and the other by a team of Jewish Allied soldiers, led by First Lieutenant Aldo Rained, played by Brad Pitt. The movie won high critical acclaims, including eight Academy nominations. Quentin Tarantino is an important name in the movie industry, that has changed the way action movies are made, and we will surely hear from him soon.
