An exhaustive list of the favorite films of iconic filmmaker Quentin Tarantino are examined below.  Tarantino is currently filming his ninth film (he treats Kill Bill – Volumes 1 & 2 as one film), Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, which will reportedly center around the 1969 Manson Family murders.  The film will star Leonardo DiCaprio as a former Western film star, struggling to find success in Hollywood; Brad Pitt as DiCaprio’s character’s stunt double and friend; and Margot Robbie in a yet to be disclosed role.
