Tarantinos' Characters Real Life Things
625 wordsThe movie on the whole was really great. It was filled with some pretty gory scenes and extreme violent content, Tarantinos' trademark.

20 Th Century Thomas Pynchon
1,322 wordsPynchon and Ginsberg (1) The American literature is known to have been affected by the stylistic experimentation, since the last half of 19 th century.
