Watch: Quentin Tarantino Had the Last Laugh

Laughter doesn’t immediately come to mind when you think of Quentin Tarantino’s body of work. But as video essayist Candice Drouet reveals in her latest video essay Tarantino Had The Last Laugh (above), Tarantino’s characters laugh more than you may recall….and the effect is quite menacing.

The four-minute supercut features every instance a Quentin Tarantino character or the director himself laughs in one his films. The result is less hilarious than insidious as anyone familiar with the works referenced will understand the context of these laughs. More often than not, these characters are laughing at another character’s suffering or before or after they have inflicted suffering.
