Latest Episodes

Quentin, You'll Be a Director Soon

EIn our third and final episode, Quentin the video store clerk transforms into Quentin the big-shot filmmaker. It sounds like another L.A. fairy tale, but here's a fuller version of the story with 'Hollywood Shuffle' and 'Boogie Nights' as Quentin's inspiration and competition—including a fist pump from Dolph Lundgren and a phone call from Paul Thomas Anderson.

Quentin, You'll Be a Director Soon

Quentin Tunes in, Drops Out

EQuentin Tarantino sees everything these days—even the occasional Marvel movie. But in 1973, the year everyone was flocking to see 'Enter the Dragon,' a 10-year-old Tarantino spent most of his time in Knoxville, Tennessee, wishing he could click his heels and go back home to California. By the time 'Valley Girl' opened, he was dialed into mass culture but not yet able to create it. Join us for Episode 2 as we follow Quentin through the '70s and into the '80s.

Young Quentin Goes to the Movies
