Fans have speculated for decades that his iconic films are all components of a larger masterpiece.
And after years of attempts to unravel the link between them, Quentin Tarantino has finally revealed what connects all his characters.
Speaking on The Project on Monday night, the director revealed the protagonists of his films are all inhabitants of one of two ‘universes’ of his creation.

Confession: Quentin Tarantino admitted that all the characters in his films are connected in some way while appearing on The Project with Samuel L. Jackson
Dismissing the idea that he has conceived just one fictional space for the roles, Tarantino said: ‘That’s not 100 per cent correct. There is actually two separate universes.’
He elaborated: ‘There is the realer than real universe, alright. And all the characters inhabit that one.
‘But then there’s this movie universe. So From Dusk Till Dawn, Kill Bill, they all take place in this special movie universe.
‘So when all the characters of Reservoir Dogs or Pulp Fiction, when they go to the movies, Kill Bill is what they go to see. From Dusk Till Dawn is what they see.’
Different zones: Tarantino said the characters of Reservoir Dogs would go to the movies to watch his later films
Layers: Kill Bill (made in 2003 and starring Uma Thurman) is among the director’s later films which inhabit what he calls ‘the movie universe’

The 52-year-old was joined on the show by Samuel L. Jackson and Kurt Russell to promote their most recent film, The Hateful Eight.
On Saturday Tarantino and Jackson turned up unannounced to a screening of the film in Sydney to the delight of surprised fans.
The boutique movie theatre’s owner Antoinette Katehos told Daily Mail Australia that meeting the Hollywood heavyweights was a ‘surreal experience.’
‘The patrons were just beside themselves – the energy in the room was just awesome, people were cheering and everybody was just going crazy,’ she said of the surprise visit.
