We Got This Covered
Aside from being a great and individual filmmaker, Quentin Tarantino also has a knack for reintroducing forgotten actors to the world. Working with up-and-coming talent can be his forte, too (he gave Michael Fassbender something of a mainstream break with Inglourious Basterds, while Tim Roth got a boost from Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction), but no one utilizes underrated and under-used actors like QT.
It’s something he’s done his entire career, from his first film (Dogs) to his last (The Hateful Eight). Each Tarantino movie has its merits, and each one invariably finds Tarantino bringing an actor – figuratively, of course – back from the grave.
