Description by OLDIES.com:
At the beginning of 1992, no one had heard of Quentin Tarantino. By mid-1995, he was being hailed as the hip new Oscar-toting messiah of filmmaking. His appearances around the world conjure up comparisons with Beatlemania. Jeff Dawson tells the incredible saga based on special access to Quentin Tarantino, his friends, his colleagues, and his critics.
Jeff Dawson began trailing Tarantino when the nouveau director was happy to have the company. Here is an irreverent personal biography and an in-depth study of the director at work. Dawson interrogates Tarantino for his early influences: Godard, Scorsese, and De Palma. He probes the director about his use of violence and the accusations of plagiarism. We witness Tarantino on the set through the eyes of Harvey Keitel, John Travolta, Bruce Willis, Tim Roth, and other Tarantino gang members interviewed for this book.
Follow Tarantino behind the scenes of Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs and Destiny Turns On The Radio. Dawson takes us through Oscar mania into the media's reception for Tarantino's acting debut. Read here for the first time the dialogue that didn't make it into the final cut - as well as the original plot twists for True Romance and Natural Born Killers that got axed by the censors.
