Better In The Dark #66: Director’s Court: The Case of Quentin Tarantino

quentin-tarantino

It’s the first segment of Director’s Court, where the Guys Outta Brooklyn put famous filmmakers before the court of public opinion and decide whether they’re still valid or funneling down the drain. This time up, it’s Quentin Tarantino who’s under the microscope. Tom and Derrick examine Tarantino’s use of cultural touchstones, whether some of his set pieces are homages or rip-offs, whether his frequent appearances have served to sour the public separate from the films themselves, and other outstanding issues revolving around the man who made being a film geek cool. Plus we review Inglourious Basterds, and make suggestions as to what Tarantino should pursue for future projects. It’ll get medieval on you ass, so get to clicking!
