Quentin Tarantino is unquestionably one of the greatest and most popular filmmakers working today, bringing a level of meticulous polish to his movies that most other directors can only ever dream of.
But like any director, Tarantino toys with his vision on the page and in the editing room long before delivering it to audiences, ensuring that some of his ideas ultimately don't make it onto the big screen.
These 10 scenes across his filmography, whether scrapped before shooting started or painfully deleted during post-production, represent some of the most fascinating work that sadly never made it into the final cut.
While in a few cases we were lucky enough to see the excised scenes turn up on home video, for the most part these scenes are either locked in a studio vault somewhere or, worse still, never went in front of cameras at all.
Though there's not much point faulting Tarantino's decision-making skills as a director, it's still a tremendous agony to fans that these promising scenes were left out of the final cut.
Stay at home dad who spends as much time teaching his kids the merits of Martin Scorsese as possible (against the missus' wishes).
