Over the course of his career, Quentin Tarantino has not hurt for any critical/academic deconstruction of his work, but he’s only rarely celebrated for something so specific as his “driving shots.” The below supercut focuses solely on all the shots in Tarantino’s filmography that take place in or around modes of transportation.
Running a breezy two-and-a-half minutes, “Tarantino: The Driving Shots” from Jacob T. Swinney covers everything from the rear projection driving shots in “Pulp Fiction” and “Kill Bill” to the period stylings of “Inglorious Basterds” and “Django Unchained” (which, despite not containing a single motor vehicle, is still represented in the supercut).
The video goes to show not only how simple driving shots can be but also how they can be fertile ground to continue implementing your aesthetic as a director. Watch “Tarantino: The Driving Shots” below, then do some driving afterward while listening to pop music from the 70s. It’s what Tarantino would want. [via AV Club]
