The Pocket Essentials: Quentin Tarantino [D.K. Holm]


#1

look at this:







“This is a new paperback about Tarantino. It is a carefully constructed analysis of Tarantino’s work, in a short and quick manner, but it is excellent in bringing something new to the canon and in answering questions and claryfying myths. An excellent, quick and informative read - without any glitches, fanboyism or boredom. A must own for those 9 bucks, for any Tarantino fan, veteran or newbie” - tarantino.info

As with my Kill Bill book, there’s a couple (!) of errors in the Pocket Essentials book (such as forgetting to put Mr. Pink in the cast of Reservoir Dogs!). I’ve started a blog to stay on top of corrections:

I just received a copy of the book. It looks quite solid, with lots of interesting info. There are no pictures by the way. I plan to read it as fast as I can an write a little review. My first impression is positive nonetheless. I guess this is a great reference for fans and those on their way to fandom

Working my way through the book now. I like how it is set up with all the stories about geekdom and all that. My first impression is downright positive.

I think I will have a review ready in a few days or weeks

A bit short, but I lost about 1 page worth of text and I just couldn’t remember everything I typed. Right now I don’t even have a Windows on my computer, just bizarre times I’m going through. Enjoy! (and buy!)
