Quentin Tarantino’s films are a compendium of historical cinematic influences, which have been whittled down into a comically savage movie-verse. It’s populated by memorable (and off-beat) characters, who frequently engage in fierce discourse about subjects like pop culture and ethics through extended dialogue.

“10 Memorable Quentin Tarantino Movie Scenes” honors the filmmaker’s highest achievements in writing and/or directing. In this new feature, we shine a light on the people who keep popping up in Tarantino’s movies – playing an eclectic mix of profound criminals and survivalists – in honor of this week’s Django Unchained, which features appearances from several of these same folk, as it were.
[For future reference: the following includes both titles which were written (but not directed) by Tarantino and full-fledged auteur projects alike.]
