Have You seen Band of Outsiders? c’mon man, Tarrantino totally borrowed from this film
Anyone else agree???????????
I agree. I’ve heard him called a collage artist on numerous occasions based on the stuff he “borrowed” (stole) from Godard. :oP
I lost a little respect for the originallity of pulp after seeing band of outsiders
They are only similar in spirit but hardly the same in terms of ideology.
Pretty much everything in QT’s films are stolen.
^Many Woody Allen films.
Here’s one I particularly like:
The Fountain >> Ikiru
Early Pixar >> everything cool (they stopped with the numerous references of awesome around The Incredibles. Sad.)
i am not sure sure but:
I can certainly see that, but in the same way Begotten >> Eraserhead.
A Clockwork Orange >> Funeral Parade of Roses
some of these are great/interesting. here’s mine (i could do these forever)…
vertigo → lost highway
le samourai → the killer → ghost dog
a woman under the influence → breaking the waves
alice in the cities and/or kings of the road – stranger than paradise
scorpio rising → the loveless
persona → mulholland drive or… person →3 women → mulholland drive → inland empire
l’argent → 71 fragments…
peeping tom → benny’s video
two lane blacktop → brown bunny
eraserhead → barton fink
wild strawberries → taste of cherry
kes → ratcatcher
scum → bad boys
killer of sheep → george washington
badlands → undertow
even dwarfs started small → the idiots
a woman is a woman → she’s gotta have it
amateur/henry fool/trust → me and you and everyone we know
short cuts → magnolia
taxi driver → mona lisa
each tarantino film has about 10, 20, 30, etc movies it references.
the dance scene from pulp fiction with uma and john turturo is CLEARLY based off of the bance scene in band of outsiders (so the dance scene in hal hartley’s simple men. actually thats MORE obvious). i thought that was pretty obvious. but pulp fiction (just like ALL of tarantino’s movies) are like “movie mixtapes”. characters,certain shots, lines of dialogue, plot scenarios, etc in tarantinos movie are lifted from other films. thats his style.
i thought most people knew this by now.
Kids >> Los Olvidados
Punch Drunk Love>>>Dancer In The Dark
The Seven Samurai (Kurosawa) and The Magnificent Seven (Sturges)?
Roger Hayn’s post above led me to think how LOS OLVIDADOS influenced two other films:
Hector Babenco’s PIXOTE
Mira Nair’s SALAAM BOMBAY!
and maybe even WEST SIDE STORY (?)
meet the feebles—the muppet movie
Good call on Pixote! That’s one of my favorite movies. I’ll have to watch Salaam Bombay.
Apocalypse Now >> Aguirre?
good call on the apoc now/aguirre
what about city of god/pixote?
Rififi > Le cercle rouge
Yojimbo > A Fistful of Dollars
Day of the Outlaw > The Great Silence
I Was A Prisoner On A Chain Gang > Cool Hand Luke
La jetee > Twelve Monkeys
Hard Eight—-Bob the Gambler
Jackie Brown/Kill Bill 1 and 2—-every 80’s DePalma movie
Royal Tenenbaums—-Magnificent Ambersons
mulholland drive -—persona
Persona influenced 3 Women
Persona was (possibly) influenced by La Pointe Courte
