He began writing together with Avary and other friends, spent several frustrating years writing and trying to launch two scripts pretending to be his debut as manager. In part because of how difficult it was to make a "real movie" for an unknown writer and director, wrote in 1991, Reservoir Dogs, with the intention to be more minimalist project imaginable: the story of a heist armed robbery in which the theft occurs off screen, pages and pages of dialogue that need a single set. Intended to be an extremely cheap 16mm film with Tarantino and his Video Archives buddies playing all the roles. Fortunately, the ambitious producer Lawrence Bender read the script of Reservoir Dogs, was fascinated and asked Tarantino to grant him a month to try to make this "real movie". It was Bender who sent the script to the actor Harvey Keitel and it was the enthusiasm that attracted several good actors and, finally, a decent budget for production. Shot in less than a month in Los Angeles, with an exceptional cast including himself Keitel (who was also responsible for co-producing), Michael Madsen, Steve Buscemi, Tim Roth, Lawrence Tierney, Chris Penn and Tarantino himself. Reservoir Dogs was a success, first at the Sundance Film Festival and then worldwide.

Suddenly Tarantino was hot and the two scripts he had been working before Reservoir Dogs were sold right away: it was True Romance (True Romance, 1992, directed by Tony Scott) and Natural Born Killers (Murderers born, rewritten and directed by Oliver Stone in 1993). Also offered some projects, such as Speed ​​and Men in Black, but chose to retire to Amsterdam to work on his script for Pulp Fiction, a collage of fiction played by John Travolta and Uma Thurman released in 1994, which was another success for Tarantino and several award nominations, of which won the Palme d'Or at Cannes and the Oscar, Golden Globe and BAFTA for Best Original Screenplay.

After that he directed the fourth episode of Four Rooms, The Man From Hollywood, an homage to Alfred Hitchcock. The remaining episodes of the film was directed by Allison Anders, Alexandre Rockwell and Robert Rodriguez. He acted and wrote the script for From Dusk Till Dawn, a film directed by his friend Robert Rodriguez, and spawned two sequels, in which Tarantino and Rodriguez exercised only as executive producers.

His third film was Jackie Brown in 1997, who wrote and directed. It was an adaptation of Rum Punch, a novel by Elmore Leonard. A tribute to the films of blaxploitation, starring Pam Grier, who starred in many films of the genre in the 70's, and he was nominated to both the Golden Globes and the SAG award for her role, and co-star Robert Foster was nominated for an Oscar in the category of best supporting actor. Completed this deal only Samuel L. Jackson (also nominated for a Golden Globe), Robert De Niro, Bridget Fonda and Michael Keaton.

I had planned to do next a war movie tentatively titled Inglourious Bastards, but postponed it to write and direct Kill Bill (released in two parts, Volume 1 and Volume 2), a revenge movie that took elements of Wuxia (Chinese martial art) Jidaigeki (Japanese film genre) and spaghetti westerns. It was based on the character (the Bride) and plot that Uma Thurman and he had developed during the filming of Pulp Fiction. In 2005, Tarantino was a guest in Sin City, directed by Robert Rodriguez. It directs the car scene starring Clive Owen and Benicio del Toro.

His next project was Grindhouse, co-directed with Robert Rodriguez and released in 2007. Tarantino directed the segment entitled Death Proof. Their performance in the movie was not as expected despite having a favorable review.

The film premiered on August 21, 2009 (U.S.) garnering very positive reviews and reaching the top spot in global revenue. is the Tarantino movie that has achieved higher revenues in both the U.S. and worldwide.

His next film will be " Django Unchained, "which is already rolling. The film is a western that will address black slavery, and as a freed slave, Django, try to free his wife of a plantation.

The Weinstein Company (producer of the film) has announced to be released on December 25, 2012 in USA. States..

In 2011 began production of Django Unchained, a film about the revenge of a former slave against his former master. The film Tarantino arose from the desire to make a spaghetti western in the U.S. Deep South, which Tarantino has called a "southern", saying he wanted to "make films that try the horrible past of U.S. slavery and those things, but as do the spaghetti westerns, not like movies on a big problem. I do like genre films, but faced with everything that America has never been occupied because it is ashamed of this and other countries do not address it because they feel entitled to do so. " Tarantino finished the script on April 26, 2011, and handed it to The Weinstein Company. Christoph Waltz was cast as a German bounty hunter. For the title role is rumored Will Smith and Idris Elba, but finally Jamie Foxx has been chosen to make Django. will also be Samuel L.
