At 31, having written only four films and directed only two, Quentin Tarantino has been lauded as the new Scorsese, won an Oscar and a Palme D'Or and has established actors and directors queuing up for the privilege of working with him. He has also become an extremeley controversial figure - both for the ultra violence of his films and his willingness to do battle with powerful Hollywood figures. Using material from her interviews with Tarantino, and those around him, Jami Bernard traces his rise - from high-school dropout and B-movie junkie, through his struggle to sell his first screenplay, the making of "Reservoir Dogs" and the furore it provoked, the triumph of "Pulp Fiction" and the conflict over "Natural Born Killers", to his current position as the darling of Hollywood and his new film, "Four Rooms".

'Worshipped like a film star by fans of his ultra hip, ultra violent movies, reviled and condemned by the self-appointed guardians of morality, Quentin Tarantino has become the cult hero of the nineties.'
Using exclusive material from her interviews with Tarantino and those close to him, Jami Bernard traces his fascinating rise from high school drop-out and B-movie junkie to the daring of Hollywood, and explores the philosophy and the mythology of the writer and director who has, with just a few explosive films, turned the movie world on its head.
With the furore over 'Reservoir Dogs', the triumph of 'Pulp Fiction' and the bitter conflict over 'Natural Born Killers', Tarantino’s meteoric rise has been turbulent and headline grabbing. Through the unique inside knowledge of those who have worked, played and done battle with him, Jami Bernard looks beyond the media icon and reveals the man.
