Quentin Tarantino, beyond being an amazing filmmaker, has had a very fascinating life. In a recent interview on the Howard Stern show he explained how unlike most directors in Hollywood, who came out of the film school system, the Pulp Fiction director actually quit school in grade nine and got his film education working in a rental store.
For four years straight he watched film after film, all the while learning what makes a great movie. But that’s only the surface level of Tarantino’s history. To go in depth you have to listen to Tarantino’s interview with the great Howard Stern.
