Critic Review - Looking Closer

Tarantino is at times like a flamboyant, egomaniacal orchestra conductor, gesticulating wildly and turning to the audience to make sure we know that the show's about him.

Yes, but you are allowed to be that concieted and full of yourself when the orchestra is made of the most primitive, talented players and the music is putting everyone in the audience in complete awe. Except of the course the stubborn ones who can't stand to agree with the people around him, I mean them.

anyone who can produce a movie like reservoir dogs without the support of a major label has the right to a massive ego. why can't people just enjoy the film. how is it that you care more about the director's ego than the motion picture. you're a fascist pig.

What? This movie is an alternate ending to nazi Germany from a fictional stand point. Your pretty much saying you didnt like the movie because Tarantino made it. Go fuck yourself

Cursing someone invalidates your entire comment. It gives you the credibility of a street thug.

People have differing taste. If this film doesn't appeal to someone, then egotistical displays from it's creator can be understandably irritating to that person.

Orson Welles did the exact same thing, with his amazing but truly flamboyant directorial touches, that let you know that you were watching a Welles film! And yet, Mr. Welles is considered a sacred artifact in the world of film.

I'm sorry, but I think a director as great as Quentin Tarantino is allowed to be as egotistical as he wants.

Tarantino is concieted, so the movie is bad? This is not a review but a jealous attack on Tarantino.

I have to disagree. This was the first Tarantino movie I ever saw, I was 13. Didn't know anything about Kill Bill, Pulp Fiction or anything. All I knew was that I LOVED THIS FILM! The dialog, the actors, the music, the comedy, the gore, Quentin Made all the right moves. As always.

I hope you've seen pulp fiction or reservoir dogs. In my opinion, Tarantino's best films.

What a brilliant summary of Tarantino as a director, not just this movie. An incredibly overrated director along with Kubrick.
