The final installment of editor Jacob T. Swinney’s rather fine four part series on the Tao of The Quent. To wit:
Out of all of the trademarks that define Tarantino’s style, the filmmaker may be most recognized for his gratuitous use of blood and violence. The excessive bloodshed often seems to serve as a tribute of sorts to a style or genre of filmmaking (Japanese cinema, Westerns, etc.), but according to Mr. Tarantino himself, he indulges in the red liquid simply because “it’s so much fun” (see end of video). Here is a look at some of Quentin Tarantino’s bloodiest moments.
Editor Jaume R. Lloret’s compilation of snuff from Reservoir Dogs (1992); Pulp Fiction (1994); Jackie Brown (1997); Kill Bill Vol. 1 (2003); Kill Bill Vol. 2 (2004); Death Proof (2007); Inglorious Basterds (2009) and Django Unchained (2012).
A deftly cut tribute to the films of Quentin Tarantino by editor Joel Walden, who sez:
The work of Quentin Tarantino has always left an impression on me. Although many think that he delves too deeply into paying homage to his influences, I feel that his films are kinetic, deep and always offer a great time at the cinema. Whether it be is unique style of dialogue or impeccable moments of tension, it’s undeniable that Quentin Tarantino is one of the most talented directors working today. With this action packed and bloody installment of ‘The Works’, my goal was to display exactly what I feel makes Tarantino such a great director.
