Film friday is back as surreptitiously as it left. I’ll be jumping into the filmography of one of my favorite director’s of all time, Quentin Tarantino. This week’s poster is for his first film, an independent production, called My Best Friend’s Birthday. It took him and his friends four years to complete while they were still working at a video store. During the editing phase, 34 of the 70 minutes of footage were lost in a fire. Tarantino admits the film is poorly directed and I’d have to agree, but this was where he was just starting out. If you’re a Tarantino fan I’d still check it out, the writing isn’t bad and there are a few genuinely funny moments, not just “so bad it’s funny.”
