Tarantino XX

Rated TBC by the BBFC


A collection of eight films celebrating the first 20 years in the career of director Quentin Tarantino. 'Reservoir Dogs' (1992), Tarantino's first film, is a shocking and sometimes funny look at the aftermath of a jewellery robbery which has gone violently wrong. In 'True Romance' (1993), kung-fu loving Clarence (Christian Slater) meets and falls in love with hooker, Alabama (Patricia Arquette). After promptly marrying, however, Alabama's violent pimp, Drexl (Gary Oldman) stands in their way, and so Clarence takes it on himself to wipe him out. In 'Pulp Fiction' (1994), Butch (Bruce Willis) is an over-the-hill boxer paid to take a fall, who instead does a runner with mobster Merselius (Ving Rhames)'s money. Meanwhile, Vincent Vega (John Travolta) and Jules Winfield (Samuel L. Jackson) are two hitmen who aren't having the easiest of mornings. In 'Jackie Brown' (1997), air stewardess Jackie Brown (Pam Grier) smuggles money on the side for gunrunner Ordell Robbie (Jackson). When she is caught with $50,000 and a consignment of cocaine, she makes a deal with Ordell: if convicted, she will not shop him as long as he pays her $100,000. Meanwhile, Jackie also makes a deal with the cops, promising to help convict Ordell... In 'Kill Bill: Vol 1' (2003), Tarantino's jaw-droppingly violent homage to action films from both East and West, Uma Thurman stars as The Bride, one-fifth of a team of assassins called DiVAS. When she decides to get married and leave the outfit her boss, Bill (David Carradine), is not a happy man and gets her former colleagues to show up at the wedding... In 'Kill Bill: Vol 2' (2004), The Bride resumes her quest for justice, with just two remaining foes on her 'Death List', Budd (Michael Madsen) and Elle Driver (Daryl Hannah) - before she moves on to her ultimate goal - to kill Bill. In 'Death Proof' (2007), a psychotic stuntman attempts to stalk hot babes in his supercharged, 'death proof' Chevy... Finally, in the WWII drama 'Inglourious Basterds' (2009), a group of Jewish American soldiers known as 'The Basterds', led by First Lieutenant Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt), embark on a mission in occupied France to take down the leaders of The Third Reich. Along the way, they cross paths with Shosanna (Mélanie Laurent), a young Jewish cinema owner, out to avenge the death of her parents by the Nazis.
