Review

"Dedicated fans will no doubt find the account of the rising star's career worthwhile." "Library Journal"" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

Quentin Tarantino has rapidly emerged as the voice of his generation and a leading icon of popular youth culture. His uniquely stylish films, with their designer violence, exuberant black humour and rapid-fire, tough-guy dialogue, have won him worldwide critical acclaim and rock star status. Tarantino is walking, talking, Oscar-winning proof that you can break the rules and still triumph over Hollywood. This roller coaster ride through Quentin Tarantino's life and work is based on over 100 in-depth interviews with friends, colleagues and family and was written with the invaluable support of Quentin's mother, Connie. 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.

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..

5.0 out of 5 stars It was extremely entertaining and easy to read 25 Jan. 2016
By lindsey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Initially this biography was a bit slow to start for me. But once it got into Quentin's time at Video Archives I was hooked. It was extremely entertaining and easy to read. I learned so much about his earlier works, and how he connects his characters from film to film. Now when I watch Reservoir Dogs or Pulp Fiction it's like seeing it all from a new perspective. Solid book.
5.0 out of 5 stars 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!

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.
