Quentin Tarantino likes to steal from the films he likes in the manner of telling his own version of stories. This is no mystery, this is something that he openly admits to. In an earlier interview with Empire Magazine, the filmmaker said:
“I steal from every single movie ever made. If my work has anything, it’s that I’m taking this from this and that from that and mixing them together. If people don’t like that, then tough titty, don’t go and see it, alright? I steal from everything. Great artists steal; they don’t do homages.”
Now we have a brilliant video essay for you to check out today that gives us a breakdown of how Tarantino steals from other movies and seamlessly takes certain parts from the movies he likes and twists them into his own work. The video comes from Nat Lee of Insider, who says:
“Tarantino’s references are often seamless and easy to miss because they enhance the scenes… ‘Reservoir Dogs’ is a pastiche of the gritty Hong Kong crime films and ‘Pulp Fiction’ is based on the unconventional French New Wave movement. ‘Jackie Brown’ bases itself off the 70s controversial blaxploitation films while ‘Kill Bill’ is reminiscent of the classical Japanese samurai and Chinese consul movies ‘Deathproof’ pays tribute to low-budget exploitation movies while ‘Inglorious Basterds’ references World War II cinema. His two most recent films ‘Django Unchained’ and ‘The Hateful Eight’ are modern takes of the Italian spaghetti westerns”
In this video, a lot of interesting stuff pointed out in this video that you do not know about before and it’s a brilliant watch that any Tarantino fan will enjoy.
