Flukey Genius

Vanity Fair
Much Ado About Nothing
...Tarantino’s genius, first demonstrated in 1990’s Reservoir Dogs, sprang from the decision to make his reprehensible characters sympathetic—to make the audience laugh in recognition while wincing at the blood—through dialogue that any truck driver would recognize. Guy talk. Diner talk...
Tarantino has cunning, but not genius. He hit on a good scheme, but that ain't genius.
