I’m doing a group presentation on themes throughout QT’s films which make him an auteur. One thing that is proving hard to research is QT’s use of aliases for his characters. The Mr. White, Mr. Orange, etc of Reservior Dogs, Honey Bunny and Pumpkin of Pulp Fiction, and Cottonmouth, The Bride, etc of Kill Bill. Does anyone have insights as to why QT would include this element in his films? Maybe as a tribute to a particular genere?
Also, we’ve got most of our presentation together, but if anyone wants to contribute, our other themes we are showing is that of Chaos Theory in his films (the characters live most of their life by chance and rather go with the flow - anything can happen) and Unconventional narration (lots of flashbacks, chapter format, end to beginning rather than start to finish). I know there are also tons of trademarks throughout his films we could mention, but our presentation can only last so long.
