Pennies Worth: 
Jackie Brown was actually my first Tarantino movie and it was the twisted plotting that got me hooked. (no surprises there!) Kill Bill Vol 1 & 2 are my absolute favourite films. I have finally stopped performing the Five-Point-Palm-Exploding-Heart-Technique on my family and friends. 


  1. Thanks Kaz. He is one of my favourite writer/directors and I was really surprised to find he hadn't studied film. Very encouraging!
