Quentin Tarantino & Robert Rodriguez

In case you didn't know, Robert Rodriguez has his own channel on television call The El Rey Network. We mentioned it earlier this year when featuring a brief talk between Rodriguez and his friend and fellow filmmaker Guillermo del Toro from the channel's program "The Director's Chair," which features long discussions with various filmmakers about their craft. Before del Toro sat in the chair, it was Rodriguez's friend and frequent collaborator Quentin Tarantino in the hot seat, and they had a chat that lasted about an hour and a half. Thankfully, it's not online for you to enjoy without a cable subscription. Watch below!

Here's the entire hour and a half conversation between Robert Rodirugez and Quentin Tarantino:

The videos featured were unofficial online copies, and they have been removed.

Thanks to The Film Stage for bringing our attention to this fascinating conversation, which ranges from Tarantino's early days as a filmmaker when he was only making $10,000 a year all the way to his work with the late Sally Menke, the woman who was his editor and helped make his films come to life. There's also talk about how he came to love stories that weren't told chronologically, citing a lack of originality in narrative styles in Hollywood. If you're a fan of filmmaking at all, this is a discussion worth listening to in its entirety. Tarantino is a tour de force on the big screen, and his passion can be felt in every fast word he says. Cool?

Fascinating to listen to how long these ideas ruminate between projects. Hearing his read through of the opening to Kill Bill in '94 is pretty wild. I liked hearing about his method. I love all of his movies I've seen - the only one I haven't seen is Reservoir Dogs. It was interesting how he and Robert talked about how Grindhouse flopped and Tarantino admitted how it made him feel at the time.
