Quentin Tarantino (full name, Quentin Jerome Tarantino; born March 27, 1963 in Knoxville, Tennessee) is a cinema director, actor, Oscar-winning screenwriter and producer. He is most famous for his stylish and violent gangster dramas. Some of Tarantino's films as director include Reservoir Dogs (1992), Pulp Fiction (1994), Jackie Brown (1997), Kill Bill - Volume 1 (2003), Kill Bill - Volume 2 (2004), Death Proof (2007) and Django Unchained (2012) The Hateful Eight (2015).

Tarantino has sometimes been criticized for glamorizing violence and organised crime. However, the gangsters in his films, and especially the most corrupt characters, typically suffer death or some other form of comeuppance in punishment for their actions.
