You know you’ve made it as a filmmaker when they’re making films about you.
After a big year bolstered by the release of “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” Quentin Tarantino has now become the subject of yet another film. Tara Wood tackles Tarantino’s filmography, legacy, and influence in the wide-ranging “QT8: The First Eight,” which appropriately enough digs into the first eight films made by the American auteur.
The film’s zippy first trailer hints at some of the secrets and revelations to come, along with plenty of nods to the future of Tarantino’s filmmaking which he has long hinted would end after ten films, a concept that appears to be gently rebuffed by even his closest pals.
While “Hollywood” is not examined in the film, “QT8” has plenty of material to plow through, from Tarantino’s early days in the industry (at least one interview subject recalls thinking he was just a big film geek), to the successful screenplays he was never able to direct, to the current period, which finds Tarantino hailed as perhaps the best filmmaker of his generation.
“QT8: The First Eight” arrives On Demand on December 3.
