In Goodfellas it isn’t the
inside trunk shot as it is in QT’s movies! In Quentin’s movies, (all 3 of them and in the Kill Bill teaser) the camera is inside the trunk to give you the feeling that you are inside the trunk! In the Goodfellas trunk shot (both of them as it showes it twice) the camera is outside the trunk! So it isn’t the same trunk shot, Quentin’s trunk-trademark-shot is tottally different than Marty’s in Goodfellas! I must say that Scorsese’s trunk shot in Goodfellas isn’t anything remarkable, but Quentin’s is!
By the way everytime I hear how QT uses music in his movies, he always reminds me of Marty’s use of music as for example: source music generrally (radio, live music, bars etc) slow motion combined with music (Jackie Brown), source music in extremely low volume (you can hear it as a backround only when there is a small silence in the dialogues), source music in ‘‘slugfests’’ (Reservoir Dogs) etc etc etc.
By the way have you ever noticed that in every Quentin movie there is at least one scene (with a couple most of the times) in a cafe, restaurant or umm… what do you call it the place where you’re having breakfast!(?)
See this and then see one of QT’s favorite movies; Taxi Driver.
