From 1991 to 2006, Lawrence Bender and Quentin Tarantino’s A Band Apart Films was in operation. This company was responsible for the creation of many of Tarantino’s most successful films. A Band Apart Film’s productions were no limited to Tarantino’s films; other films that were produced by their company include White Man’s Burden, a film directed by Desmond Nakano and starring John Travolta.
Lawrence Bender’s contributions to the film industry were not limited to A Band Apart.
One of Lawrence Bender’s most recent contributions to the entertainment industry came as a Netflix limited series. The show is based on a Russian film called The Major, and it debuted on February 23rd, 2018.
The series is about a police officer in New Jersey who runs over a young-black child in the road with his car. The man is distracted, conducting calls concerning his wife’s issues when he hits the child. After first checking his bumper for damages he sees a bicycle wheel still spinning on the passenger side of his vehicle.
The show has two main points of view: that of the officer and that of the surviving family. The officer and his police force peers are trying to cover up the accident. Racial issues escalate in the community as a result of the event.
Inglourious Basterds was the last film produced by A Band A Part Films, but it wasn’t the last project from Lawrence Bender.
Inglourious Basterds has an all-star line-up of actors including Brad Pitt, Eli Roth, Michael Fassbender, and Diana Kruger.
The movie is about an expert team of killers during World War II. The film uses their nonchalant attitude towards killing Nazis as comedy relief to and otherwise serious topic.
The main plot of the film consists of this group of people plotting an assassination attempt during a movie screening.
