We’ve known for quite some time that Quentin Tarantino‘s films share the same universe, and that many of his characters’ stories of origin are somehow connected. The most famous connection is arguably the Vega Brothers, who consist of Mr. Blonde (Michael Madsen in Reservoir Dogs) and Vincent Vega (John Travolta in Pulp Fiction).
But there’s more to the QT universe than meets the eye. (Therefore, Tarantino is something like a Transformer, which connects the auteur to Michael Bay and now we’ve just solved something. [Con Air is secretly a Tarantino film.])
There are actually more than a dozen connections in all of Quentin’s work. You just have to dig deep enough to find them. In the case of Kill Bill, you have to literally dig. (That’s because a graveyard headstone holds the key to one connection that you may have missed.)
Check out the video above, and see if you were able to catch all of the familial connections in his films. From Inglorious Basterds to Django Unchained, there’s a secret tie to each of his works that envelops the entirety of his cinematic breadth into one shared world.
Honestly, I had no idea that the same sheriff is in many of his films and now I’M KICKING MYSELF FOR NOT REALIZING THAT!
