Tarantino has a used record store in his house.

Written by on November 22, 2022

Apparently, he conceives every movie from the music up…..

by going into his spare room which he dubs a “used record store”.

In an interview he did with The Dig in 2021 he says,

“The music is a key to the personality of the movie.”…

…”And also, the beat of the movie, the rhythm that the movie’s supposed to play at. So, if I come up with an idea that I think is a good idea for a movie, usually I sit on it for a while and just kind of let it grow and grow and grow. And then when I start and actually think, This is actually something that I could spend the next two years of my life doing, my first stop is I go into my vinyl room…

– I have a little room right off of my bedroom, it used to be a nursery,

I turned it into a used record store.

And so, first things first, I just start going through my records and start pulling records that… have really interesting pieces of music that could be what I’m looking for…. And then, usually once I find three or four songs that I can imagine really being in the movie, especially something that could be the opening credit sequence – well, that goes a long way to actually helping me discover the story and thinking, OK, let’s take this to the next step. Which is sitting down and writing it.”
