Tarantino's Trademarks

5. The Trunk Shot

One of Quentin Tarantino's most re-occurring trademarks, the "trunk shot" can be glimpsed in every one of his movies: Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, Jackie Brown and Death Proof (in this case, the hood of a Dodge Challenger is used in place of the trunk). The Tarantino-penned From Dusk Till Dawn also contains a trunk shot, and Inglourious Basterds' final shot - in which Aldo Raine admires his "work" - somewhat mirrors this particular shot.
