Quentin Tarantino

Biography from Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia:

Former video store clerk whose debut, the complex heist film Reservoir Dogs (1992), became an immediate cult hit and established Tarantino as a talent to watch. Two of his early screenplays were subsequently brought to the screen by other directors-True Romance (1993, Tony Scott) and Natural Born Killers (1994, Oliver Stone)-and showcased Tarantino's penchant for quirky dialogue, mangy characters, and graphic, almost casual violence (although Killers was extensively rewritten and Tarantino received only a story credit). Nothing, however, prepared critics or the public for Pulp Fiction (1994), a brutal, profane, and sensationally entertaining piece that dazzled with a bizarre narrative structure and knowing salutes to pop culture. It became a surprise popular hit, won the Palme d'Or at Cannes, and earned Tarantino a Best Director Oscar nomination and an Original Screenplay Oscar (cowriting with Roger Avary, whose film Killing Zoe was executive-produced by Tarantino). Tarantino, who had originally studied acting, has appeared in both of his own films, as well as Sleep With Me (1994) and Destiny Turns on the Radio (1995). He even spoofed Pulp Fiction on an episode of his friend Margaret Cho's TV sitcom "AllAmerican Girl" and directed an episode of the medical drama "E.R."
