Posted on the 28 February 2013 by Sumithardia

Quentin Tarantino was born in 1963 in Tennessee. Ever since a child, he adored movies, much more than school. He got a job at Video Archives, where he wrote the scripts of True Romance and Natural Born Killers.

He was only 29, when he came with his directorial debut “Reservoir Dogs”, when Harvey Keitel read his script; he remarked “I haven’t seen characters like these in years” and he signed on as actor and producer of the film. It is considered as one of the best cult films of all time, but his real gem is “Pulp Fiction”, which he made in 1994.
