"Written and Directed by Quentin Tarantino" is a title card which appears in the credits of the majority of the films written and directed by Quentin Tarantino. Online, the phrase has been often used for the purposes of jokes about Quentin Tarantino's speculated foot fetish. In September 2019, the phrase spawned a viral spoonerism "Quentinen and Tarantined by Writtin Directino".


Written and Directed by Quentin Tarantino

On October 9th, 1992, crime film Reservoir Dogs, written and directed by Quentin Tarantino, premiered.[1] In the credits of the film, the title card "Written and directed by Quentin Tarantino" appears. In the following years, the phrase would appear in all feature films written and directed by Tarantino for the exception of Kill Bill: Volume 2 (compilation shown below).[2]

Tarantino's Foot Fetish

The 1994 film Pulp Fiction, written and directed by Tarantino, contained multiple shots of actress Uma Thurman's feet.[3] Many of the subsequent feature films directed by Tarantino, including Kill Bill, Death Proof, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood included similar scenes. The 1996 film From Dawn till Dusk, written by Tarantino, includes a scene in which actress Salma Hayek puts her toes in Tarantino's character's mouth.

Tarantino's perceived obsession with feet led to speculations that the director might have a foot fetish, which has been a prominent subject of memes about the director and his films (compilation shown below).[4][5]


Online, Quentin Tarantino's speculated foot fetish has been a notable subject of memes and other humorous posts on Facebook, Twitter and other online platforms. For example, an April 16th, 2019, post by Facebook[12] community Shittier Movie Details received over 1,800 reactions and 1,600 shares (shown below, left). A September 16th, 2019, post by Facebook[13] user Hamza Ahmad received over 1,000 reactions and shares in Quentin Tarantino Gourmetshitposting group (shown below, right).

Visionary director Quentin Tarantino added this scene to From Dusk Till Dawn (1996) totally because it led to valuable character development and added cinematic value to the film, and not just because he wanted Salma Hayek's foot in his mouth.
