"One of the very best books about Tarantino's movies to day, Smith manages to both analyze his movies from a point of view noone else before him has done, and take a look at the man's work in a numer of contexts that matter to his fans. Well-written, full of insight and not too short, this book might very well make it to the top of must-read Tarantino books." - Sebastian Haselbeck (www.tarantino.info)

It comes out on August 30, 2005.



I just realized that that’s two days before David Carradine’s Kill Bill Diary is released.

The latest book in the Virgin series is on Tarantino, written by Jim Smith, who also did books on George Lucas and gangster films.

Just received this book today after about a week of aniticipation. I’ve read about 40 pages so far, and I gotta say, this book is awesome. It isn’t really a biography like mentioned before, but it goes into great depths about all of Quentin’s films. There is some really great analysis. I am starting to really appreciate all these subtle things in films that end of being detrimental to the way the viewer perceives the film. Anyone interested in reading a book about Quentin definately should get this one. As far as a biography, it seems like Bernard’s book is the way to go, and would be complimentary to “Tarantino.”
