This Quentin Tarantino supercut shows his films from a new angle

New, 3 comments

Quentin Tarantino's dialogue is fast-paced, whip-smart, and endlessly quotable, but he doesn't just use words to flesh out his memorable characters. The Pulp Fiction director uses the camera to hint at motivations and feelings — a process documented by filmmaker Rishi Kaneria in his latest supercut. Kaneria combines an array of Tarantino's profile shots, using a quote from a DVXuser forum member to explain that by setting the camera side-on to a character's face, you give the audience the least amount of information about their state of mind. The iconic characters in the cut — including Uma Thurman's Bride and Samuel L. Jackson's Jules Winfield — look both determined and menacing when set against Kaneria's urgent soundtrack.
