The Writer’s Almanac
Sat Mar 27 02:00:00 EDT 2010
Saturday’s Poem: "All Night Long" by Patricia Fargnoli, from Necessary Light. Saturday’s Literary Notes: It’s the birthday of the filmmaker Quentin Tarantino, born in Knoxville, Tennessee (1963). Instead of going to film school, he got a job at a video rental store that had one of the largest video collections in Southern California. Several other aspiring filmmakers worked there, and they would watch movies all day at work, discussing camera angles and dialogue. He spent five years working at the video store, writing screenplays, but he wasn’t getting anywhere in his career. He finally got a break when he met an actor who knew another actor who knew Harvey Keitel, and Keitel agreed to look at one of Tarantino’s scripts. Keitel was impressed enough to volunteer to help Tarantino produce the film, and to act in it himself. The result was Reservoir Dogs (1992), which made Tarantino internationally famous. His next film, Pulp Fiction, won the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival in 1994, and it went on to win an Academy Award for best screenplay. His latest film, Inglorious Basterds, came out in 2009. He was nominated for an Oscar for Best Director and the film was nominated for Best Picture.

Sony Classics
