They Call This Shot “The Tarantino”


I’m surprised it took this long for some observant moviegoer to notice this, but they’ve discovered a camera shot that populates literally every single one of Tarantino’s movies, an upward angle of the film’s heroes, looking at someone they have at their mercy.

I think going one step past this however, is examining Tarantino’s obsession with putting people in trunks. I think that’s what’s happening in every shot exception Inglourious Basterds, and I’m not sure what’s going on in Jackie Brown as I haven’t seen it.

It does kind of put you in the moment doesn’t it? Like a swastika is being carved on YOUR forehead.
