Personal Quote:

[in response to criticisms that Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003) is overly brutal] Innocent people die along the way because, unfortunately that's the story of revenge. Revenge is messy. It never works out the way you want it to. See more »

Trivia:

True Romance (1993) character Clarence Worley personifies Quentin Tarantino's passions in life. See more »

Trademark:

His films often feature at least one character who is deeply religious or spiritual and tries to reconcile that faith with their actions (Jules in Pulp Fiction (1994), Jacob in From Dusk Till Dawn (1996)). See more »
