A Film Mentioned By Tarantino


#1

In a recent interview, he recommended a film to the interviewer. He said it did for Japan what Pulp Fiction did for America. Does anyone remember the title of the film? If anyone has seen the film, please share your thoughts.



Thanks!

Is this some really bad riddle because I have no idea what you’re talking about


#3

He/She (sorry, dont know your gender, PURE.) is just

asking what the name of the film QT mentioned, is.



sorry PURE, I dont know it.



but if it did for Japan, what PULP FICTION did for America,

Id like to see it to!

I want to say Battle Royale, but I don’t really know. I’ll ask around and try to find that interview.


#5

samurai fiction, maybe? but i thought that movie was boring as shit


#6

This was from the Entertainment Weekly interview. The film was “Shallowtail Butterfly”, and QT said that it did for that director in his country, what Pulp did for QT in his. From descriptions of the plot on IMDB, it doesn’t sound like a similar type of film. Additionally, I think he mentioned that this film’s soundtrack was great make-out music.



I’m more interested in his praise of Brian Trenchard-Smith in that same interview. Has anyone seen Trenchard’s films?

Shallowtail Butterfly…That’s it!!! By the way, I have not seen Trenchard-Smith’s films. However, I will check them out in the future. Anyone else?

Brian Trenchard-Smith? His filmography looks very lame on the face of it. Does anyone know exactly what QT said about his movies?
