Nashville by Robert Altman (1975) is the first one that came off the top of my head. Probably some others before that one though.

P's tired (and brilliant play on words, btw), so I'll go ahead ask you...

anway... no, Tarantino was far from the first.

i would say D.W. Griffiths INTOLERANCE -- 4 interwoven stories -- quite an impressive movie

the only reason u get "smashed" is cos u ask retarded questions.

the answer to this one is "how effing limited is ur knowledge of film that u seriously believe for a second that sum jerk, almost 100 years after cinema was invented, was the first to think of telling more than one story at once????"

read a book, son, check other sites on the interweb, parallel/intertwining stories was one of the greatest developments in cinema history. i mean, the level of ignorance in ur questions is just mind boggling.

there must be so little going on up there that u make this guy..

That was unfair and completely unwarranted to call Tarantino a jerk. I am disgusted.

explanation?

Okay. A quote:

Quote
I really do think directing is a young man's game. If I say Martin Scorses' movies are getting kind of geriatric he can say, "F_ck you, man! I'm doing what I want to do, I'm following my muse," and he's one hundred percent right. I'm in my church praying to my God and he's in his church praying to his. There was a time we were in the same church, and I miss that. I don't want to go to that church. If I was headed to that church, I would write novels.

And another:

Quote
EW: If you were teaching a class on your own films, what deficiences would you point out?

QT: The answer is none. I'm sure somebody else might find weaknesses, but I can't. If there's a weakness, I don't do it — you'll never see the scene.

Just things like that. That's all I'm talking about. Those are things that a jerk would say.

no shit. its like calling someone a jerk for giving an opinion you dont agree with.

so tarantino doesn't want to go down the same road as Scorsese, but still shows his respect for the career Scorsese has chosen. this makes him a jerk because....?

and whats wrong with a director thinking so highly of their own work? he does his shit the way he likes it and is happy with the final result. so what

i think he pretty much justified his opinion in this line.

Withnail beat me to it.

And as for Tarantino?  Well, let's just say the size of his head is inversely proportional to the quality of his films.

that sucks, that he's so dumb and all. I bet when he's  jerking off he's like "this is just like in the remake of psycho when he's yanking it to ann heche oohhhy"  
Tarantino is cool, fine. I'm sorry to say it but i think i enjoy filmmakers who have lives outside of the movies.
