This sucks. Even if Santiago’s films weren’t the most polished that I had seen, just the ideas of them certainly make them special to me.

I remember reading (Right before the DVD of Grindhouse was released) that an interview between QT and Santiago was set to be included in the extras. Was this just a rumor or is this footage just waiting to be released for another day?
