Everybody's favourite outspoken director Quentin Tarantino has revealed his list of 2011's finest contributions to cinema. The 'Pulp Fiction' filmmaker continues his tradition of starting fires and fanning flames by placing awards favourite 'The Artist' joint tenth with critically mauled comedy 'Our Idiot Brother', but that's Tarantino.
Without his appreciation of schlock and serious classics, we wouldn't have films as varying in texture and tone as 'Inglourious Basterds' and 'Grindhouse', not to mention his scattershot scripting duties for the likes of Oliver Stone's 'Natural Born Killers' and Tony Scott's 'True Romance'.
His pick of films certainly doesn't cater for 'classical' tastes, but his palatte is decidely modern much like his movies. His latest film, action western 'Django Unchained' (with a typically diverse cast including Leonardo DiCaprio, Jamie Foxx and Kurt Russell) hasn't been released yet, but it'll most likely be featuring on more 'serious' lists next year around.
