Quentin Tarantino is a filmmaker’s filmmaker and a cinephile’s cinephile — a pop-culture junkie who packs his movies with moments both familiar and unforgettable. Rife with minute details and pop-culture allusions that may initially elude moviegoers, Tarantino’s films reward repeated viewings. Which raises the question: Have you seen them enough times? And have you adequately studied up on the man himself? Test your knowledge of the Tarantino-verse with this quiz — and don’t hold your breath for “What do they call a Quarter-Pounder With Cheese in France?”
