Quentin's the man, especially late career Quentin. Not sure if anyone else feels the same way but in my opinion Tarantino has done nothing but improve as a filmmaker. His 90s work is great but I don't consider it to be of the same caliber as his last couple films. It's very Nic like, though despite Nic having a tendency to trip over his own **** I would consider him the better writer. There's just more depth and emotional reality to Pizzolatto's work than Zahler's, who is ultimately a pastiche artist. Zahler has some film reviews online and they are... unique. Man thinks Daniel Day Lewis is a bad actor.
