The Essence of QT


#1

Quentin Tarantino has in some way been involved in the making of a variety of unique films, but what single moment of his work sums him up?



Answer: when Harvey Keitel’s character Winston ‘The Wolf’ Wolfe takes Julia Sweeney’s character Raquel out to lunch and Harvey uses the line “Just because you are a character, doesn’t mean you have character”.



If you think about this applies to every dumbass lame character thats ever been on the ‘silver screen’, not only that its a great line to fit in a movie. It almost sounds like a pop at all the bad films along with a conotation as to how aware he is of its necessity and how is able to apply it.



He gives every character, character.
