Quentin Tarantino's best visual film references

Other | Tuesday 2nd June 2015 | Carl

Quentin Tarantino is not the kind of director to claim he reached success all alone. He watched a huge number of movies before starting his career in the cinema, in fact, he may well be one of the world's biggest movie consumers. He's in love with a range of genres (horror, Z-movies, biopics, the list goes on) and he's not one to keep his references a secret. Sometimes Tarantino reproduces sequences exactly. But who really knows how many tributes the man has paid during his career ? 

Well now we all do thanks to Jacob T.Swinney's supercut of references to movies spotted in every Quentin Tarantino flm, from Reservoir Dogs to Django Unchained. Obviously, the list is excellent and includes some of cinema's all-time classics, like Citizen Kane, The Graduate, Miller's Crossing, The Good, The Bad And The Ugly, Metropolis, and Gone With The Wind. He's not only about the masters of film though, he also refers to more exotic or unusual movies like Lady Snowblood, Game Of Death and Superchick.
