A Good Month to be a Tarantino Fan
Have you ever wondered what it would look like if Quentin Tarantino directed the Super Bowl (which the Saints so glouriously won yesterday; for the record: The Who rocked the fucking house)? Probably not! But still, check out this video (link).
If you’re in Hollywood, always be on the look out for really nice stuff like this down at the Egyptian theater…
Iconoclastic filmmaker Quentin Tarantino, hot off earning Oscar nominations Tuesday for best director and original screenplay for “Inglourious Basterds,” will discuss his career with Variety critic Todd McCarthy on Monday at the American Cinematheque’s Egyptian Theatre screening of “Basterds,” which received eight Academy Award nominations overall, and his 1994 classic “Pulp Fiction.” www .egyptiantheatre.com.

We’ve reported on the Festival before, and here’s another great face-to-face summit between Quentin and Kirk Douglas, as they were screening Posse (AICN link), article and pictures (Independent). There was also a Directors on Directing panel at the Santa Barbara film festival (Link) which also offers some really great material. Article and pictures are available (Independent), and on that note a short Kill Bill vs Avatar (link) bit.
But back to Basterds. There’s a bit in Variety where Tarantino explains Basterds (link, Variety). Have your remote handy? Christoph Waltz will be on Letterman tonight. LA Times has another piece on the guy who will win an Oscar (link). And lastly, a really great article: Anne Thompson and Jack Mathews square off about Tarantino’s body of work, a discussion you need to read (link).
That’s it for now. Tarantinolicious…. we’ll keep you posted, despite the time-consuming thing called life :)
