Mr. Blood Red, Vol. 2

Two decades after the severed ear of Reservoir Dogs, Quentin Tarantino serves up Hitler's head on a plate

E.T.: If we meet again in 17 years' time, will you have settled down?

Q.T.: We'll see. There was a time in the early part of this decade that I kind of had baby fever. And it just didn't work out with a couple of women. And now I don't have baby fever. Not that I don't want a baby, but, like a writer, I want it to be . . . let's set this up a little bit more.

E.T.: How do you look back on that 1992 Sundance Film Festival where Reservoir Dogs was first screened, and you were part of that group of young Turks?

Q.T.: Since then, and even then, we mythologized that Sundance, with all the directors that came out of there. We called ourselves the class of '92. The thing about it was, I just assumed all those directors would be around with me for the rest of my career. I just bumped into Allison [Anders] a couple of weeks ago at Astroburger. Alex Rockwell, Tom Kalin. Gregg Araki's still around and making movies. And even though he wasn't at Sundance that year, I still consider him part of that group—Nick Gomez [Laws of Gravity]. He's the one that surprised me the most when he drifted away. I thought, for sure, he was going to be around for a long time. I thought all of us were going to be around forever.
