"Editors are the quiet heroes of movies and I like it that way. We have a very private relationship with our directors, most often conducted in very dark rooms. I met Quentin when he was interviewing for an editor – a cheap one. I got in touch and he sent me this script for a thing called Reservoir Dogs and I just thought it was amazing. It floored me. Scorsese was a hero of mine, especially as he used a female editor in Thelma Schoonmaker, and this script just had that tone. Later, when I found out Harvey Keitel was attached – he was the first person Quentin had approached – I was more determined to get this job than ever. I was hiking up in Canada on a remote mountain in Banff when I saw a phone box and I stopped to call LA and they confirmed I'd got the gig. I let out a yell that echoed around the mountain." - Sally Menke, longtime friend and editor of Tarantino's films.
