When you’re about to watch a Quentin Tarantino film, you know that you’re in for something out of the ordinary. He is described as being a true film auteur and his body of work is evidence of such a compliment. His use of nonlinear storylines, stylization of violence, dark humor, and other bold forms of storytelling has made him a director beloved by many. Tarantino’s films are so packed full of subliminal messages, Easter eggs, and pop culture references, that it’s almost impossible to catch them all unless you’re a true fanatic. So, if you’re a Tarantino devotee, check out these interesting facts you might not know about some of his most iconic films.
The Identity Of Mr. Blonde
In the film Reservoir Dogs, the sadistic and murderous character Mr. Blonde is nothing short of a loose cannon. Played by Michael Madsen, it is revealed that Mr. Blonde’s real identity is Vic Vega. Does that name ring a bell? If so, it’s because he shares the same last name as Vincent Vega, the hitman in Pulp Fiction who was played by John Travolta.
Tarantino has stated that the two characters are indeed brothers and that he planned to make a prequel about the two. The film was intended to be titled Double V Vega but never came to fruition as both Madsen and Travolta were too old by then.
