All Tarantino Films Are Interrelated
When you hear the words “Quentin Tarantino” several images pop into your mind, and I’m assuming all of them are violent. Tarantino notoriously produces movies with a level of violence seldom seen in films, and yet this brutal cinematographic style has undoubtedly led to Tarantino’s overwhelming success and critical acclaim.
But why are all of his films so bloody? We all assumed that it was just because that was the kind of films he liked to make; they offered something new to the cinema. However, in a recent article, Cracked has uncovered the interlocking and overlapping details in all of Tarantino’s films that prove they all exist in the same universe, with mind blowing revelations.
Cracked first uncovered this theory by linking Eli Roth’s Jewish character, Donny Donowitz in Inglourious Basterds, as the father of movie producer Lee Donowitz in True Romance. This link solidified the understanding that all of Tarantino’s post World War 2 films take place in a universe in which Hitler was slaughtered in a blown-up movie theater by an American suicide team.
David Chen quickly explained via twitter the long-reaching effects of such a turn of events. “Because World War 2 ended in a movie theater, everybody lends greater significance to pop culture, hence why seemingly everybody has Abed-level knowledge of movies and TV. Likewise, because America won World War 2 in one concentrated act of hyper-violent slaughter, Americans as a whole are more desensitized to that sort of thing.”
If you continue this theory of interconnectedness, Cracked points out that there are really two universes within the Tarantino alternate reality. The actual alternate reality is the universe in which Hitler was blown up, and Pulp Fiction, Resevoir Dogs, and True Romance exist as “real life” events. The other universe exists as a fictional movie universe which includes all of the Kill Bill films and From Dusk ‘Til Dawn, which makes sense because those films are hyper-violent as well.
Okay, so this is essentially the coolest thing to ever come out of Hollywood, both our Hollywood and the Tarantino produced one. The only question is that, with all of this interconnectedness explained, how will Tarantino fit in the Django Unchained film currently under production? I can’t wait to figure this one out.
