VOTD: Quentin Tarantino on DePalma/Scorsese, Shooting Reservoir Dogs, and How Avatar Would Have Changed Kill Bill
Posted on Monday, February 8th, 2010 by Peter Sciretta
Jeff Wells has posted three awesome clips of Quentin Tarantino telling stories from the Directors on Directing panel in Santa Barbara this weekend. I’ve embedded all three after the jump. The first clip is about how directors raise the bar on each other and Tarantino recounts a story Brian DePalma told him about Martin Scorsese and Blow Out vs. Raging Bull. The second story is about how he had to prove himself the first week directing Reservoir Dogs. And the third story is about how James Cameron‘s Avatar might have affected Kill Bill if it had been released first. I could listen to Tarantino tell his stories all day long (which reminds me, why doesn’t XM/Sirius hire this guy to do a weekly one-hour satellite radio show?) Watch the clips after the jump.
