The trunk shot (and reverse trunk shot), blood-stained flowers, the ubiquitous dance scene, the god’s-eye POV, the foot fetish (“WIGGLE YOUR BIG TOE!”), the lip close-up (an homage to “The Warriors,” I’d bet), these are all undeniably Quentin Tarantino. A savvy, brilliant auteur in his own right, Tarantino is an instantly recognizable director –– and an unforgettably shrewd student of film. His admiration for the craft and encyclopedic knowledge of practically every genre aid in that notoriety and keep us longing for whatever he’s going to grace us with next.
Ollie Paxton has created this stunning mashup of Tarantino’s arresting films, featuring the cinematography of Andrzej Sekula (“Reservoir Dogs,” “Pulp Fiction”), Guillermo Navarro (“Jackie Brown”), Robert Richardson (“Kill Bill: Vol. 1,” “Kill Bill: Vol. 2,” “Inglorious Basterds,” and “Django Unchained”), and Tarantino’s own turn (“Death Proof”).
