Quentin Tarantino. Quentin Cooper talks to Quentin Tarantino ,

Hollywood's most in-demand and controversial young director whose debut Reservoir Dogs, celebrated by many for its cinematic energy, and vilified by some for its violence, has yet to receive a video certificate in this country. His new film Pulp Fiction has just won the top prize at Cannes and is a return to hard-boiled territory, this time on an epic scale. So why is the former video-store assistant and self-confessed "film geek" now the director all the stars want to work with? Producer Paul Quinn

Sounds of today mix with echoes of the past as the doors are opened for another day.
