    Filthy Frank is a Japanese-born artiste who has grown popular by posting unconventional content on his social media channels.

The story behind the birth of his ˜DizastaMusic' channel is quite interesting. When he was in his college, Filthy Frank placed a bet with his friends that he could post a video based on offensive content and still get a lot of viewership. In his video, he talks about explosive diarrhea. The video got more than 10,000 views quickly encouraging him to start a new channel. His friends obviously lost the bet to him! As the first video was based on a filthy concept like diarrhea, he got the nickname of Filthy Frank from his fans which he continues to use to this day. Other than using abusive words in his videos, Filthy Frank also differentiates himself through the weird clothes he wears during the filming of his videos.

  • Quentin Tarantino

    Either an individual grasps Quentin Tarantino's films, or doesn't. Those who do understand his movies, relate to his craft of making a daring fusion of thrillers, neo-noir, and non-linear films. Those who do not apprehend his films, pass them off as mere art-house cinema material. Nonetheless, Quentin Tarantino has grown to become one of the biggest names in Hollywood. Not only has he managed to gather a cult following for his films, he, unlike his previous generation of filmmakers, has understood in entirety, what ˜kind' of films get the audiences flocking to cinema halls. From the famous ˜Pulp Fiction' to ˜Inglorious Basterds' and ˜Reservoir Dogs' to ˜Natural Born Killers', he has come a long way from working in a video rental store to one of the most legendary director-screenwriters of all time. Through most part of his life, he juggled as the multifaceted actor, director, screenwriter and producer and in the latter part of his life, decided to stick to doing what he knew best - direction and production. One would be able to spot a Quentin Tarantino classic from a mile away. His films are pregnant with dissimilar traditions, gangster violence, Blaxploitation themes and accented language.
