How Quentin Tarantino Steals From Other Filmmakers

I just saw Quentin Tarantino’s new film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and loved it. I’ve been a fan of Tarantino since Reservoir Dogs. Love him or hate him he has made an impact on cinema. One thing I always hear about Tarantino’s work is how he steals from other films. I hate to break it to you every filmmaker alive today is stealing from filmmakers of the past.

You can read all of Quentin Tarantino’s Screenplays here.

Whether it is a close-up, jump cut, POV or more complex shots like PT Anderson’s Boogie Nights pool sequence and Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas long take we all steal from other filmmakers. By the way, both these iconic sequences were inspired or outright stolen from other films.

I found this amazing video by The INSIDER that articulates How Quentin Tarantino Steals From Other Movies.

Whether you are a film buff or not, everyone has heard of the name Quentin Tarantino. His razor-sharp dialogues and graphic violence are some of his major trademarks. But what truly sets him apart from every other filmmaker is how he steals from other movies. 

I hope we can put this to rest.
