Fan Prefers Tarantino's Early Work When He Was Shelving Movies All Day At Video Store

DANVILLE, CA—Despite being a fan of the visionary director's entire film catalog, local 29-year-old Charles Knox admitted Tuesday that he prefers Quentin Tarantino's work from his early days as a clerk at the Los Angeles–area Video Archives movie rental store.

"People could walk in there any time of day and he'd point them to the new releases, all the while talking a mile-a-minute about why Rio Bravo is the greatest Western ever made. That, to me, was classic Tarantino." Knox added that he is also a big fan of the work James Cameron did in his early 20s as a Southern California–based truck driver.
