description

Quentin Tarantino is the most influential filmmaker of the past 30 years. His bloody, talky, nonlinear films pull together dozens of influences to form bracingly original cinematic events. Tarantino’s films are the best kind of Hollywood tentpoles – wholly unique cinematic visions from a filmmaker at the peak of his powers. As Tarantino's newest film ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD arrives to praise and controversy, filmmaker Tara Wood takes chronicles the first eight wildly divergent films that Tarantino has helmed, narrated by the actors and collaborators who have worked with him. From RESERVOIR DOGS through THE HATEFUL EIGHT, QT8 digs deep into the story of the most important and controversial filmmaker of our time.
