Quentin Tarantino has rapidly emerged as the voice of his generation and a leading icon of popular youth culture.

Perceptive and compelling, Quentin Tarantino: Shooting From The Hip penetrates the eccentric world of Hollywood's hottest movie director. It is essential reading for everyone wanting to understand Tarantino the man, and the phenomenon. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product description

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!
