Quentin Tarantino is arguably the most innovative visionary in filmmaking today. His films are characterized by non-linear storylines with an aestheticization of violence and have grossed upwards of $650 million over his 30 year career. In 2005, Tarantino solidified himself on Time’s list of 100 Most Influential People in the World. Although his movies are all uniquely stylized and can be easily distinguished as a ‘Tarantino film’ despite wildly different plot lines from different time periods, Tarantino has cleverly tied them all together by hiding homages to other films and Easter eggs in the undercurrent of every script. Brilliant.
