Quentin Tarantino is an illustrious American film director, actor, and scriptwriter critically acclaimed for directing immensely successful movies. His filmography is typified by discrete and disconnected storylines, sardonic themes, throwback to popular culture, extended scene plays, and so on. He gave a fitting start to his professional career when he co-scripted and directed, ‘My Best Friend’s Birthday’ in 1987.
Quentin debuted as a director and indie filmmaker with ‘Reservoir Dogs’ in 1992—a movie that was a box-office hit and also screened at the Sundance Film Festival. He proved his versatility in ‘True Romance’ and ‘Natural Born Romance’ as a scriptwriter and director respectively. He firmly established his credentials as an extraordinary director and screenwriter with ‘Pulp Fiction’ (1994), winning the prestigious ‘Academy Award’ for 'Best Screenplay.’
Tarantino’s subsequent major directorial venture was ‘Jackie Brown’ (1997), a ‘Blaxploitation’ movie, based on the book ‘Rum Punch’ by Elmore Leonard. Some of his other noticeable movies are ‘Kill Bill: Vol. 1’, ‘Kill Bill: Vol.2’, ‘Inglourious Basterds,’ 'Death Proof,' and ‘Django Unchained’—the last being his top grossing film.
