Quentin Tarantino: your essential guide to his movies in order

screen-poster

Contemporary film directors don't come more feted, or indeed controversial, than Quentin Tarantino. And the provocative auteur director cements his reputation with new movie Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, nothing less than Tarantino's salute to the town that has shaped his entire career.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt star as a struggling Western TV actor and his stuntman who are forced to contend with a shifting political landscape in 1969 Tinseltown. As their odyssey takes them to the home of the Spaghetti Western in Italy, real-life actress Sharon Tate's (Margot Robbie) destiny is bound up with that of infamous serial killer Charles Manson (Damon Herriman).

The movie therefore promises to be a kaleidoscopic, funny and disturbing blend of fact and fiction, with the stunning cast also including Al Pacino, Kurt Russell, Damian Lewis, Lena Dunham, Dakota Fanning and the late Luke Perry.

To celebrate the release of the movie, we're recapping each of the classic films in the director's career. From Reservoir Dogs to Pulp Fiction, this is your essential, definitive guide to the films of Quentin Tarantino in order of release.

Reservoir Dogs
(1992)

Tarantino exploded onto the scene and made Hollywood take notice with his nihilistic and utterly riveting heist-gone-wrong movie.

Pulp Fiction (1994)

If Reservoir Dogs was an attention-grabbing introduction to Tarantino, follow-up movie Pulp Fiction was nothing less than a generation-defining masterpiece, influencing many film-makers throughout the next decade and beyond.

Find out more about Pulp Fiction.


Jackie Brown (1997)

Former Blaxploitation icon Pam Grier gives a career-redefining performance in what is possibly Tarantino's most mature and affecting movie to date.

Find out more about Jackie Brown.


Kill Bill Volume 1 (2003)

At the peak of his creative powers, Quentin Tarantino pulls the most Tarantino-esque move imaginable and fashions a self-referential, gory homage to the B-movie 'grindhouse' offerings of his youth.

Find out more about Kill Bill Volume One.


Kill Bill: Volume Two (2004)

Uma Thurman continues her rip-roaring rampage of revenge against her fellow cohorts in the second instalment of Tarantino's extended grindhouse/kung-fu homage.

Find out more about Kill Bill: Volume Two.


Death Proof (2007)

Tarantino's most divisive movie to date cast Kurt Russell as a murderous stuntman in a deliberately gory and sleazy tribute to the grindhouse cinema of the director's youth.

Find out more about Death Proof.


Inglourious Basterds (2009)

In his first example of revisionist history, Tarantino applies his audacious pop culture aesthetic to the horrors of World War II in the sly Inglourious Basterds, which made a star of the Oscar-winning Christoph Waltz.

Django Unchained
(2012)

Jamie Foxx and Christoph Waltz take on Leonardo DiCaprio in Tarantino's brash, violent and uproarious Blaxploitation Western, which retools the American slave trade as a blood-soaked odyssey of vegeance.

Find out more about Django Unchained.


The Hateful Eight (2016)

The final movie in our Quentin Tarantino retrospective is a blood-soaked and claustrophobic thriller, set in the aftermath of the American Civil War.
