Wasn't "Kill Bill" Tarantinos FIFTH film?

    From memory, I think that Kill Bill is billed as being Quentin Tarantinos 4th film.

    But isn't it his fifth?

    From memory, he has done.

    From Dusk Until Dawn
    Reservoir Dogs
    Jackie Brown
    Pulp Fiction.

    Which of these is he distancing himself from and why??

    Sorry.. Think I have worked it out.. Tarantino didn't Direct "From Dusk Until Dawn", he was credited for "Writing" it!

    He also directed 'Four Rooms' and has produced and written for several others such as 'Natural Born Killers'.

    Well four rooms is a port manteau piece ( he only directed one part of it).

    He did direct another film prior to Reservoir Dogs( it did nothing and I can't even remember the title) I think but he doesn't acknowledge it. So Kill Bill is in fact his 5th film.

    Did he direct True Romance, or was that writing only?

    He helped write and starred in From Dusk Til Dawn, it was directed by Robert Rodriguez so I suppose he's not counting that as "his" film in the same sense.

    I gather from the extras that he had a significant part in assisting the director though ;)

    Hi,

    Okay, as a reasonably big fan of QT, I shall try to finalise this question.

    To date, QT has DIRECTED:

    - Kill Bill: Vol. 2 (2004)
    - Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003)
    - Jackie Brown (1997)
    - Pulp Fiction (1994)
    - Reservoir Dogs (1992)

    So technically, "Kill Bill" is his 4th film directing. The one film he disowns, is his original premiere "My Best Friends Birthday" made in 1987, but as this was never officially released to cinemas, and msot of the footage has long been deleted, QT doesn't count it anymore.

    He has also contributed either acting, technical assistance, film-geek knowledge and fan-assistance, script, production, or semi-directorial duties to...

    Once Upon a Time in Mexico
    Dogma
    Seul contre tous
    Jackie Chan: My Story
    Full Tilt Boogie: "Behind The Scens of From Dusk Till Dawn"
    Alias
    Saturday Night Live
    The Golden Girls
    "ER" (Season 1 - Motherhood)
    Crimson Tide - script-rewrites
    Natural Born Killers - script
    Desperado
    True Romance
    Iron Monkey (1993)
    From Dusk Till Dawn 3: The Hangman's Daughter
    From Dusk Till Dawn 2: Texas Blood Money
    Curdled
    Four Rooms
    Killing Zoe

    Does this answer the question?! :D

    Pooch

    No its his fifth film officialy in that he has directed, on his own, "My Best Friend's Birthday". He tries to distance himself from that one because its not like his latter work i.e. any good. He did some early films I think i heard something about a Kill Bull recently. But where do you stop counting, Guys like him make films before they become famous so do you count all those as they are films in their own right? If the guy says its fourth who are us less mortals to argue with him. Anyone seen Vol.2 yet?
