I am a big fan of the "popular culture and Philosophy" series and I own about eight volumes. This is one of the best in the series. I read these books, both to expand my knowledge of specific philosophers and their theories and ideas as well as to peek at the depths of meaning in some of my favorite works. The decent books in the series will have essays that say "here's a philosopher, here's his idea, this is how it applies to the work in question". which is fine for the first reason i read these books. The really good books in the series have essays that say "here's some things that happen in the work, this is how it illustrates the theme of the work, here's how it relates to the big questions of life, here's how it defends/opposes this philosopher's work". That is precisely what all the essays in this volume do. Whether analyzing Kill Bill as a modern retelling of Oedipus by way of female empowerment, discussing the structure of Pulp Fiction as an analysis of the compartmentalization of time, or using the crooks of Reservoir Dogs to compare group morality, all of the essays truly elucidate Tarantino's movies.

I really enjoyed this book. i'm a big tarantino fan & read the book in one day. I didn't even know it existed until 2 years after its publication. It was even better than i thought it would be. it's well written, humorous & a must-have for tarantino fans, even if you're not that much into philosophy itself.
