Quentin Tarantino: Cinema's glourious basterd

Slide 1 of 10

With the release of 'Django Unchained,' we look back on the auteur's careerBy Kat MurphySpecial to MSN MoviesTwo decades ago, the man fired a bullet into the head of status quo filmmaking. A volatile combo of creative arrogance and innocence, Quentin Tarantino is an absolute original. His movies don't look or sound or move like anyone else's in the world; he transforms action, character, and landscape into something iconic, beautiful, strange, silly or sublime, like a glimpse of an alternative universe where everything is always becoming ... more. Forget assembly-line art, grinding out product to stay famous and rake in the big bucks. No, Tarantino takes his own sweet time writing and directing: only six movies have followed "Reservoir Dogs," his 1992 bombshell. Surely the most blasphemous Christmas gift ever, "Django Unchained" makes eight."Django Unchained" is out in theaters Dec. 26.Bing:'Django Unchained' | More about Jamie FoxxWhat's your take on the polarizing director?
