Given it was nearly twenty years ago when "Pulp Fiction" arrived and consequently turned the world upside down, it's very easy to forget what a massive seismic shift the movie represented, and how unique an individual Quentin Tarantino was in the cinema world at the time. From Sundance darling with "Reservoir Dogs" to Palme d'Or winner with "Pulp Fiction" in the span of two years, it was a leap that was nearly unprecedented, and it was a straight shot of adrenaline to the industry as a whole.

Given it was nearly twenty years ago when "Pulp Fiction" arrived and consequently turned the world upside down, it's very easy to forget what a massive seismic shift the movie represented, and how unique an individual Quentin Tarantino was in the cinema world at the time. From Sundance darling with "Reservoir Dogs" to Palme d'Or winner with "Pulp Fiction" in the span of two years, it was a leap that was nearly unprecedented, and it was a straight shot of adrenaline to the industry as a whole. 

And so, while it might seem a bit odd now, and perhaps even presumptuous, the 1994 BBC documentary "Quentin Tarantino: Hollywood’s Boy Wonder" is actually pretty reflective of the era and again underscores what a jolt Tarantino brought to the scene. And fans should get a really big kick out of it. Running nearly an hour long, the doc takes you inside the director's then West Hollywood apartment and spends considerable time with the filmmaker, as he shares his thoughts on the career (thus far) and filmmaking in general. And a pretty solid roster of directors also participate including Brian De Palma, Terry Gilliam, Monte Hellman, Allison Anders and more.

It's a pretty fascinating time capsule all around and definitely worth a click. Watch below. [The Seventh Art]
