I've had better, 7 Mar. 2005
After only working my way half way through this overly comprehensive guide on Quentin Tarantino I gave up. It's major downfall is a lack of detail into the man himself, it acts more as a fact book to his projects, and although clearly a lot of research was done into the books construction I found that I learnt nothing new about a man with a rather extensive and interesting history. Instead i reccomend "Quentin Tarantino: The man and his movies", written by Jamie Bernard, although this does not cover more recent work such as Kill Bill it is a far better read and explores in detail the history of Tarantino and what lead him to his current status; one of the best director's of our time. Explored also in this book is the hugely popular cult classic Pulp Fiction.
This comprehensive guide may have been better if there was collaberation with it's subject, what I was hoping for was an in depth guide on how Tarantino rose to stardom and how he perfected his craft, i was poorly dissapointed.
