Quentin Tarantino Tackles Directing Questions from Other Directors

This post is by Jason Hellerman from No Film School

How does Tarantino handle questions from other directors?

One of my favorite now off-the-air TV shows was Robert Rodriguez’s The Director’s Chair. It was a series of specials featuring Rodriguez sitting down with Hollywood’s most iconic directors and engaging in a revealing and unexpected exchange about the world of filmmaking. It was also an incredibly rare opportunity to listen in as two great directors, who are fans of each other’s work, discuss the craft in great depth. Like a free film school for anyone who wants to direct one day.

One of his best guests was close personal friend Quentin Tarantino. Their talk ran the gamut of topics, but my favorite part was a sort of rapid-fire part with questions other directors had always wanted to ask him.

Check out the video from Cinema Garmonbozia, taken from Rodriguez’s The Director’s Chair. And then let’s talk after.
