Quentin Tarantino (Movies, People)

"You want a poor man's Tarantino, that would be the film department. If you see them, tell them we just loved their little opening night present."

A shining inspiration to wannabe high-school dropouts everywhere, Quentin Tarantino rose from the depths of video retail to become one of the top independent filmmakers in recent history. His bloody but bodacious body of work includes Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, and the Kill Bill two-parter. Tarantino has a masterful touch for bringing careers back from the brink of extinction: John Travolta, Pam Grier, Robert Forster, and David Carradine have the man to thank for an extension of their respective 15 minutes. On a completely unrelated note, Rob Thomas has given roles in the past three seasons to Harry Hamlin, Richard Grieco, and Steve Guttenberg.
