A Supercut of Extreme Close-Up Shots From the Films of Quentin Tarantino

Filmmaker Jacob T. Swinney (previously) recently examined the role of the extreme close ups in the films of Quentin Tarantino, from 1992’s Reservoir Dogs to 2012’s Django Unchained.

The shots are often used to convey the gravity of a particular situation or the manipulative strength of a character’s vice. Some express power, some express weakness, and others just simply look cool.

The supercut of tight shots is set to “Son of a Preacher Man” and “Jungle Boogie,” both of which were featured on the soundtrack of the director’s highly acclaimed 1994 film Pulp Fiction. The video is the second of a four-part Tarantino series, following February’s “Hearing Tarantino.”
