The First Time With Quentin Tarantino

Sunday 5 May



Matt Everitt chats to legendary movie director Quentin Tarantino, who discusses his early love of Elvis Presley and the Partridge Family and the early (and unlikely) influence of Jungle Book’s The Bear Necessities!

Renowned for his strong film soundtracks from movies such as Pulp Fiction, Quentin also tells Matt his thoughts about the use of music in film and how he goes about choosing a playlist to complement a script.

Presenter Matt Everitt said: “The First Time normally focuses on musicians but we made an exception for Tarantino as his use of music in his movies is so genuinely iconic. All his films are master classes in marrying image to sound in visceral, emotional and original ways. The most memorable scenes from his movies are synonymous with specific songs - some of which have become part of popular culture.

"He’s clearly passionate about music, so it was incredible to investigate his knowledge of music across countless genres - bubble-gum pop, surf rock, soul, hip hop, rockabilly and country and western - and find out the stories behind the soundtracks and the songs that changed his life.”
