Tarantino, as well as being an excellent film director, is much influenced by world cinema and shows this in all of his films. He takes iconic scenes from his favorite directors films and makes them his own in his preferably most famous films such as Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill.
During an interview he mentions how if you watch lots of films “you can’t help but make a great movie.” which certainly shows hes up his own butt (but who isn’t just a little) but also tells other viewers, for example people like us practicing in media, that even if you suck at media you still have a chance of being a great director.
