Quentin Tarantino reveals the writers who have influenced him the most in regards to creating his personal style for dialogue as part of a SiriusXM Town Hall event, explaining that “…when it comes to my dialogue, I think the three writers that affected it the most as far as a genuine influence, would probably be a combination of Elmore Leonard, David Mamet and Richard Pryor…I think those were actual conscious influences in me finding my voice and my dialogue and character voices and stuff.” (Via)
