Now that you mentioned that it may possibly be a Pulp Fiction style, in the sense of a series of stories or in this case vignettes that are unconnected? I’m not going to critique the film that QT is going to make, as I’m sure it will be fantastic as his previous movies (except Death Proof but that’s a different story) but if QT is doing another vignette kind of story, doesn’t this show that he’s running out of steam?
As much as he experiments, depicting slavery in Django Unchained, or setting The Hateful Eight in two locations or even when he wrote non-chronological stories most prominent in Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction, he seems to be playing safe at the same time in terms of not changing so much but also changing at the same time. But as I said, it feels like he has no ideas left. If we see Sharon Tate get murdered, that’s reminiscint of Kill Bill and the multiple stories possibilities being Pulp Fiction. No shame in repeating certain things in your films (Twin Peaks by David Lynch for example was inspired by Blue Velvet in terms of a small idyllic town filled with dark secrets beneath the ideal American town but they’re entirely different stories) but with this idea, it sort of feels like QT is not changing his territories.
Sorry for rambling on and on and I probably went off topic
