Quentin Tarantino is undeniably one of the most versatile screenplay writers in the contemporary film industry. If you want to be original in the sense of storytelling, you are in luck if you plan to make Quentin your personal writing inspiration. He is undoubtedly one of the most eccentric in the field of fluid transition of thoughts to writing.
Tarantino’s unique approach to storytelling stems from his ability to seamlessly blend genres and subvert traditional narrative structures. His films often feature non-linear timelines, unexpected plot twists, and a distinct use of dialogue that keeps audiences on the edge of their seats. This unconventional style challenges conventional norms, inviting writers to think outside the box and experiment with their own narratives. By studying Tarantino’s work, aspiring writers can glean invaluable insights into the art of pushing boundaries and crafting narratives that leave a lasting impact on audiences.
One of the most iconic scenes in a Quentin Tarantino movie is the character of Samuel Jackson being religiously absolved…
“There’s a passage I got memorized. Ezekiel 25:17. “The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness, for he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy My brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay My vengeance upon you.” Now… I been sayin’ that shit for years. And if you ever heard it, that meant your ass. You’d be dead right now. I never gave much thought to what it meant. I just thought it was a cold-blooded thing to say to a motherfucker before I popped a cap in his ass. But I saw some shit this mornin’ made me think twice. See, now I’m thinking: maybe it means you’re the evil man. And I’m the righteous man. And Mr. 9mm here… he’s the shepherd protecting my righteous ass in the valley of darkness. Or it could mean you’re the righteous man and I’m the shepherd and it’s the world that’s evil and selfish. And I’d like that. But that shit ain’t the truth. The truth is you’re the weak. And I’m the tyranny of evil men. But I’m tryin’, Ringo. I’m tryin’ real hard to be the shepherd.”
– Jules Winnfield from Pulp Fiction
