By |

To mark the first 20 years of his career, director and filmmaker Quentin Tarantino has chosen eight films to include in Tarantino XX, a Blu-ray box set featuring his most definitive work. Reservoir Dogs, True Romance, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, Death Proof and Inglourious Basterds are all highlighted in this 10-disc set, along with critical discussions and other extra material. In this bonus clip, Tarantino reveals some of his early inspirations. "One of the . . . things that really helped me as far as just cinematic stuff in my brain was I'd read Elmore Leonard novels and would adapt them into movies in my mind. How would I turn this into a movie?" says Tarantino. "Frankly, all those Elmore Leonard books, turning them into movies in my mind years before I could ever afford to make a movie, really helped me, helped me with my structure."

Tarantino XX will be released November 20th.
