Quentin Tarantino: your essential guide to his movies


Contemporary film directors don't come more feted, or indeed controversial, than Quentin Tarantino. And the provocative auteur director is set to cement his reputation with this August's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, nothing less than Tarantino's salute to the town that has shaped his entire career.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt star as a struggling Western TV actor and his stuntman who are forced to contend with a shifting political landscape in 1969 Tinseltown. As their odyssey takes them to the home of the Spaghetti Western in Italy, real-life actress Sharon Tate's (Margot Robbie) destiny is bound up with that of infamous serial killer Charles Manson (Damon Herriman).

The movie therefore promises to be a kaleidoscopic, funny and disturbing blend of fact and fiction, with the stunning cast also including Al Pacino, Kurt Russell, Damian Lewis, Lena Dunham, Dakota Fanning and the late Luke Perry.

We're counting down the days until the film's release by recapping each of the classic movies in the director's career. From Reservoir Dogs to Pulp Fiction, this is your essential, definitive guide to the films of Quentin Tarantino.

Reservoir Dogs

Tarantino exploded onto the scene and made Hollywood take notice with his nihilistic and utterly riveting heist-gone-wrong movie.

Pulp Fiction (1994)

If Reservoir Dogs was an attention-grabbing introduction to Tarantino, follow-up movie Pulp Fiction was nothing less than a generation-defining masterpiece, influencing many film-makers throughout the next decade and beyond.

Jackie Brown (1997)

Former Blaxploitation icon Pam Grier gives a career-redefining performance in what is possibly Tarantino's most mature and affecting movie to date.

Kill Bill Volume 1 (2003)

At the peak of his creative powers, Quentin Tarantino pulls the most Tarantino-esque move imaginable and fashions a self-referential, gory homage to the B-movie 'grindhouse' offerings of his youth.
