    The real success and recognition came to him after pulp fiction, released in 1994. This work laid the Foundation for the collaboration of actor and Director with Uma Thurman. He thought of her as «my actress.»

    Then there was a pause of 3 years, after which Tarantino made the film «Jackie brown.» The next four years he devoted to the script of the film «inglorious bastards.»

    The triumphant return of Quentin Tarantino as a film Director occurred in 2003, when rolling out the first part of the picture «Kill bill». In the starring Uma Thurman. Then followed a series of other not less interesting works, among them — «Grindhouse», «death Proof», «Inglourious Basterds», «Dango released.»

    The film «Grindhouse» flopped at the box office proceeds from it did not cover half of the budget. But the «Proof of death» received the Palme d’or at Cannes festival, and two other paintings, the harvest of awards «Oscar», «Golden globe», «Saturn», «critics Choice» and others.

    In the films of Quentin Tarantino felt a particular style — it keeps the viewer in suspense. The Director often uses the technique of a «Mexican standoff» when several characters pointing guns at each other. In his paintings — a lot of violence, although in ordinary life he can not tolerate.
