New Tarantino Essay


#1

An essay I wrote on Quentin Tarantino has been published on The Ooze, a leading e-zine of emerging culture & spirituality. Please take a moment to read and rate the article at the link below.



More details: My essay, titled KILL WILL: The Rough Magic of Quentin Tarantino, reviews the movies of Quentin Tarantino, from his first amateur film made with friends from a Manhattan Beach video store, on through to the recent films to Kill Bill and Sin City. I focus on the role of vice in his films, and what we discover about violent people, and about ourselves. Along the way, I draw parallells between that most postmodern of directors, Tarantino, and the world’s greatest dramatist, William Shakespeare, using a montage of quotes from those who know both well.



Read (and rate) the essay:

Very, very, very interesting. I was kind of turned off when I first saw how long it was, but there wasn’t a single wasted paragraph. I really liked how original it was too, it’s great to find an essay on Tarantino that isn’t the same stuff you’ve read a million times on his life repeated.



Keep ‘em comin’! ;D
