Yeah. I see a lot of Leone in all of Tarantino’s film. The pace is always extremely slow, for example. Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs are anything but fast-paced. I find that kind of influence to be much more interesting than the more obvious things.
I don’t see a lot of Scorsese in his films, although I realise that there certainly is some, I just can’t pinpoint what at the top of my head.
And how has Hawks influenced him? I’ve only seen Rio Bravo and the obvious element there is the “hang-out with the characters, get to know them, fuck the plot”-thing.
