Watch: Trailer For French Documentary 'Tarantino: The Disciple Of Hong Kong'

Update: Trailer removed by request.

While Quentin Tarnantino is known to be fan of all kinds of genre film, Hong Kong cinema in particular has been a foremost love (and major influence) for the director and that passion is being reciprocated.

A new, French produced documentary "Tarantino: The Disciple Of Hong Kong" brings together folks like Simon Yam, Gordon Liu and Ringo Lam -- giving his first on camera interview in ten years -- to discuss the director, and how Hong Kong cinema has shaped his approach and made its mark felt on his own films. It's a pretty great idea and we're surprised no one thought to do it sooner, but Twitch dropped the trailer, and the doc looks to be both scholarly (David Bordwell!) and a celebration of the very movies that continue to inspire Tarantino.

The documentary airs on French television and there's no word yet of a Stateside version, though we'd imagine that one is in the works. It looks like a perfect candidate for the genre film circuit. It's also a good placeholder until we get more news about "Django Unchained." Check out the full trailer below.
