In these media-saturated times, criticism can come in many forms. But the recontextualized dance mix is a new one on us.

The Brooklyn-based video group Eclectic Method chopped up Quentin Tarantino’s film work for this AV/DJ set, which boils down into a stew of kung fu, drug use, gunplay, blood spatters, female feet, and retro dancing.

In other words, it’s pretty much what Tarantino gave them to start with. But the set lays out Q’s obsessions better than a whole crowd of critics, with a few handclaps and sirens thrown in for appropriate emphasis.

Just imagine how it looks with a real sound system behind it.
