On March 26, a prominent representative of postmodernism in cinema, the director of the famous film Pulp Fiction, Quentin Tarantino, celebrated his 50th birthday. On the occasion of the director's and actor's anniversary, let us recall his best supporting roles.
Quentin Tarantino makes his first appearance in Reservoir Dogs, talking about the hidden sexual connotations in Madonna's song "Like a Virgin." The role of Mr. Brown (Mr. Brown) was rather plain, but it marked the beginning of the "Tarantino" tradition in every film to "kill" himself, or rather the hero he plays.
Tarantino's minor role in Pulp Fiction, Larry Dimik, is reminiscent of Mr. White from Reservoir Dogs, but without his gangster bravado. When Jules and Vincent drive up to his house on the outskirts of the city with a decapitated corpse in the car, Dimmick wants to get rid of the intruders as soon as possible before his wife, Bonnie, returns home, for which, frankly, there is no reason to blame him.
It must be said that the Australian miner in Tarantino's latest film was not so well received by critics and audiences. This antipode became the director's most dubious hero and raised many questions from the audience. Without abandoning tradition, the miner is undermined by his own dynamite.
This time, Tarantino appears as Warren, owner of the rock bar Texas Chili Parlor, in the 2007 thriller Death Proof, in which a mad stuntman subtly kills young girls. In this film, vigilant Tarantino fans can spot an old-fashioned musical apparatus belonging to the director himself inside the Texas Chili Parlor.
In the cult film "From Dusk Till Dawn" by Robert Rodriguez, Tarantino becomes Richard Gekko, the brother of the protagonist. It is in this film that there is a sensational scene of an erotic dance with a python performed by Salma Hayek, who played the role of the vampire queen. The fate of Richard is definitely a foregone conclusion, but only he is given the honor to get a lap dance from a charming vampire, and even more - to drink whiskey from her body.
