Facts about Quentin Tarantino
Quentin Tarantino Biography
A high school dropout and video freak, Quentin Tarantino took Hollywood by storm in 1992 with the cult hit Reservoir Dogs.
His combination of clever dialogue and brutal violence hit a new peak in 1994 with Pulp Fiction, which won an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay and revived the career of John Travolta.
In 1997 he had a solid, if not spectacular, hit with Jackie Brown, starring Pam Grier. An overnight success by Hollywood standards, Tarantino is considered a genius by some and a snotty imitator by others, adding to his mystique as a moviemaker.
His slave-turned-bounty-hunter movie Django Unchained (2012) was nominated for a best picture Oscar, and Tarantino himself won that year’s Oscar for best original screenplay.
Tarantino had a recurring role in the Jennifer Garner‘s TV series Alias.
