We’ve listed some great movies that anyone who likes filmmaker Quentin Tarantino will love in this article. These are films that have all the precepts most common to the director’s cinema, but which, of course, are not directed by Tarantino. All the indications below show a very accentuated pattern of violence, well constructed and extremely dynamic plots, irresistible misadjusted characters, a simplified study on the aspect of “evil” in the human being, besides several other characteristic details of Tarantino’s cinema.
