“When I was like 18, I got my friends together and we put on a stage version of Reservoir Dogs in my local nightclub, so to actually get to work with him was a dream come true. Once I got beyond that, it is fascinating to watch the man work because he does really works in his own, unique way. He [Quentin Tarantino] is so knowledgeable in film. He does his craft by absorbing all the information. He is an encyclopedia. He is just a dream to work with. He gives you a lot of information, outside of what is written, and his reference points are very precise and original. He told me that this guy, Hicox, is like a young George Sanders. All you have to do is listen to the man, and he gives you all the ammunition you need. So, I went out and watched all the Sanders films I could get my hands on.”
