Quentin Tarantino (not "Taratino" or "Quinten Tarentino" - it's a very hard name to spell) is one of the most notable auteur filmmakers in Hollywood. His films are often violent and rich with visual detail - the best Tarantino films can even be hard to watch, due to the violence depicted in them, but classics like Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs are must-sees for any film fan.
