Fast Film: Every Quentin Tarantino Movie in One Sentence
Quentin Tarantino is not one for short, declarative sentences. He doesn’t get to the point quickly, but when he finally does get to it, it’s something that can change a life or inspire a generation. Whether the story is of an epic heist or revisionist history, Tarantino uses words, not endless gunshots or explosions, to impress his audience. That’s why he would probably hate that we’ve summed up all of his movies in one sentence each.
