Quentin Tarantino fans out there – you’re in for a treat! To celebrate the forthcoming UK release of his new film The Hateful Eight, London’s BFI Southbank are showing Tarantino’s entire back catalogue.
Starting at the very beginning with 1992’s Reservoir Dogs on New Year’s Day, this Tarantino-fest also includes Pulp Fiction, Four Rooms, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill: Vols 1 and 2, Grindhouse, Inglorious Basterds and Django Unchained. The films will be shown in all their 35mm glory, and are also repeated later in January, 2016.
Named “the single most influential director of his generation” by fellow filmmaker Peter Bogdanovich (The Last Picture Show, 1971), Tarantino has a whole host of awards to his name: he’s won an Oscar, BAFTA and Golden Globe for his Pulp Fiction and Django Unchained screenplays; and was awarded the covetedPalme d’Or prize for Pulp Fiction at the 1994 Cannes Film Festival.
The Hateful Eight is released in the UK on January 8, 2016, and features Tarantino regulars Samuel L. Jackson, Tim Roth and Mr Blonde himself, Michael Madsen.
