Quentin Tarantino loves to shoot his characters eating. More than a few film students have likely written a thesis paper on the way Bill cuts the crusts off a sandwich in "Kill Bill: Volume 2."

Video artist Daniel Goodbaum dives into the gastronomical innards of Tarantino in his new video essay "Food Power," which features audio from a recent KCRW conversation with Tarantino and critic Elvis Mitchell. Goodbaum's video includes clips from "Django Unchained," "Inglourious Basterds" and "Pulp Fiction" as the director narrates his culinary motifs. Mitchell also finds the foodie in Tarantino in the latest issue of McSweeney's Lucky Peach.

Another Tarantino video making the rounds is Jonathan Keogh's supercut of the "Top 50 Tarantino Characters" set to the sounds of Flying lotus.

And The Film Experience has published an irreverent list of the "Top Ten Toes" in the director's films. And for those who missed it, we include Tarantino's own top ten for BFI's annual Sight and Sound poll, which in 2012 crowned "Vertigo" as the greatest film of all time.
