Tarantino's film will be showing at the
Angelika Film Center from Aug. 9-15.
Maybe Tarantino is in a motel room writing
his next screenplay with hopes that it will be just as thrilling as his
earlier works, now considered cult
Maybe the former video store employee is
quietly living off the success of Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction, sitting
on yet another mind-numbing,
But before we ask whether the writer/director/actor
will soon return to the red carpet, filmgoers should take the opportunity
to view these classics
yet again on the silver screen.
While the film world didn't actually embrace
Tarantino's cutting directing style and blood-ridden plot in Reservoir
Dogs, video stores could hardly
keep copies on the shelf.
With Pulp Fiction, Tarantino sparked a
surge in independent films.
Both films are even edgier than those of
today and, without a doubt, deserve to be a part of Sensational Cinema.
