Quentin Tarantino

Quentin Tarantino (born March 27, 1963) is an American film director and actor who rapidly rose to fame in the early 1990s on the back of his directorial debut, Reservoir Dogs[?], in which he also acted. A stylish, witty yet bloody heist movie, this set the tone for his later films. The follow up Pulp Fiction, which won the Palme D'or[?] at the Cannes film festival, was a complexly plotted film with a similarly brutal wit and many excellent performances. It was noted for reviving the career of John Travolta.

He was born in Knoxville, Tennessee.

In 1998, Tarantino turned his attention to the Broadway stage, where he starred in Wait Until Dark.

Tarantino also wrote the original screenplay for Natural Born Killers, though it was changed significantly by subsequent writers.
