"Good performers copy, great designers take," goes a line we quite often attribute to Pablo Picasso — also those of us who know little of Picasso's work and absolutely nothing regarding the work from where he may or might not have taken. Quentin resume help Tarantino's form of the line adds another observation about great artists: " they do not do homages." The manager of Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, and Jackie Brown may well have talked those terms in frustration, the frustration of getting his picture that is every described an "homage" for some element or any other of cinema history. He places it more bluntly: "we take out of every movie that is single made." a bold claim, to make sure, however, if anybody will probably have experienced every film ever made, undoubtedly it's him.
