Class is in session!

Quentin Tarantino talked about all his movie influences at Cannes’ 2008 Master Class. Directors such as Brian DePalma, Mario Bava, Howard Hawks, Sergio Leone, Martin Scorsese and Jean Luc Godard were some of his biggest influences when he started out directing. QT also talks about how much acting helped him both as a writer and a director, and why he does not trust composers. Click here for some of the class blogged live, and here for our forum topic, with some pictures. UPDATE: You can actually listen to the entire lecture at the official link. Enjoy the wisdom ramblings of a master filmmaker.
