Tarintino has this gimmick that works really well if you're
not paying attention. Uses tons of dialogue and stretches the
scene out way longer than what's traditionally accepted, then
throws some really graphic violence at the viewer to flip the
tone. Rewatch his thin catalogue; it's his one trick. His
voices all sound the same and the only stuff he can have his
characters talk about is pop/industry related -- he's the
Keven Smith of crime movies. The only thing which made R.D.
and P.F. different was the amazing work by cinematographer
Andrezj Sekula who actually directed those movies, and of
course Tarintino took all the credit. I made a movie with
Sekula a couple years ago called the Pleasure Drivers and
what that dude accomplished with under a million shows yet
again how naive and tired all this Tarantino love is.
