 master of unnecessary filming effects applied to empty stories at best,
 to conventionally ridicule developments most of the time). Of course

 films heritage, violence and popcorn teenagers films. All this to make
 his painstaking parodies. Certainly not neo-noir. Just neo-junk. With

I just picked up a book on Tarantino, written by Jerome Charyn: RAISED BY WOLVES. I haven't started it yet. Anyone here read it?
