A Dive Inside the Mind of Quentin Tarantino. New Doc Examines the Director’s Work24.10.2019
„QT8: The First Eight” takes a look at the first eight pictures of the American director, widely known for his homages to crime movies and skillful appropriation of B movie tropes.
The movie was directed by Tara Wood, American producer and actress. Her credits include another director-oriented anthology—in 2014, she co-directed a documentary on Richard Linklater, the director behind "Boyhood" (2014) and the "Before" trilogy, comprising "Before Sunrise" (1995), "Before Sunset" (2004), and "Before Midnight" (2013).
In her latest effort, "QT8: The First Eight" (also known under the title 21 Years: Quentin Tarantino), Wood interrogates the personal history and work of one of the most important and controversial directors to ever work in film by retracing Tarantino’s biography—from his employment in the video rental store through his efforts behind the camera: from "Reservoir Dogs" (1992) all the way up to "The Hateful Eight" (2015).
In the documentary, the director is portrayed as both a typical geek and a skilled writer whose powerful and clever screenplays (including "Natural Born Killers" and "True Romance") have been adapted by other directors to great success.
Interviews with Tarantino’s frequent collaborators, including Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Lucy Liu, Diane Kruger, Christoph Waltz, Bruce Dern, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Zoë Bell, Michael Madsen, and the late Robert Forster, give the viewers a unique, behind-the-scenes look at the director’s work. The documentary also features a number of animations, contributed, among other artists, by Michael Boas ("My Sweet Schizo").
In December, "QT8: The First Eight" will be released through one of the largest streaming platforms. No information has been released on whether the film will available to Polish audiences.
