This book is good for anyone who likes movies. I like the way Quentin explains how he became a film maker and how he achieved the same..

Excellant Novel 20 Jun. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Excellant biography. Its objective, funny, interesting, and well researched. A must read not only for fans of the hot shot director, but for anyone interested in the process that goes into making movies. My only quarrel is that it ends before the making of From Dusk Till Dawn or jackie Brown.
This book turned me into a Tarantino fan! 24 Sept. 2012
By L. Aponte - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Perhaps I am a little biased because I am a fellow filmmaker, but this is one of the best biographies I have ever read. I read this book because I intend to go to USC in Los Angeles to get my masters degree in screenwriting and I wanted to see how some of my favorite directors, screenwriters, and actors "made it" in Hollywood. I love the style in which the author tells Tarantino's story. From the moment he discusses Tarantino's humble beginnings as a film geek at a video rental store, I felt that I could connect with this filmmaker.

I found the little nuances the author includes in this book very insightful, such as Tarantino's fears and frustrations when he was in jail; getting respect while making a movie with big Hollywood stars; or even when he was being criticized by reporters for the violence in Reservoir Dogs. The style in which the author wrote the book, I felt as though I was personally experiencing what the filmmaker was going through. Now, thanks to the book, I am watching several films that influenced Tarantino. Highly recommended!

Luis Aponte, author and film director of "Death of a Gas Guzzler"
