The 1990s produced numerous independent filmmakers who quickly became rockstars, and formed a tight-knit community. In that spirit, Quentin Tarantino teamed with three of his contemporaries to create the anthology film Four Rooms. The movie stars Tim Roth as a bellboy working alone at a hotel on New Year's Eve. As the title suggests, the film is divided into four stories, one for each "room," with each story written and directed by a different filmmaker. Those four filmmakers are Allison Anders, Alexandre Rockwell, Robert Rodriguez, and Quentin Tarantino.

In this episode of Stage Nine, hosts Mike Schindler and John Mills continue their series on Tarantino with a look at Four Rooms. We discuss the poor reception, the varying quality of the segments, and what makes Tarantino's segment a standout. In news, we look at the writer hired to pen the script for Star Trek 14, Mark L. Smith.
