Belly dancing has long since found its way into popular culture. In the past, many movies showed oriental dances. But never before has a dance attracted so much attention as the one in the movie From Dusk Till Dawn when the actress took the stage in the role of Santanico Pandemonium, and since then, nothing has been the same. The memorable appearance of the beautiful actress Salma Hayek and her one of the most famous belly dances is made into the history of cinema.
The movie was made in 1996 and marked a turning point in the careers of many people involved. It started with the scriptwriter. Quentin Tarantino proved that other directors could successfully film his books. At the same time, he demonstrated his talent as an actor in a supporting role. As a director, he got a friend who started his remarkable career with From Dusk Till Dawn.
From TV Doctor To Mr Cool
Robert Rodriguez celebrated his second success after Desperado and thus finally established himself in Hollywood. The series actor George Clooney had already arrived there. But as a softened TV doctor, nobody wanted to give him a character role. After From Dusk Till Dawn, the handsome boy was suddenly considered the coolest actor in the world. His career got a tremendous boost. Clooney rose to become one of the Hollywood superstars. The female supporting actress Salma Hayek fared not much differently. Her snake dance catapulted her into the ranks of the coveted Latina of Hollywood. Her second collaboration with director Roberto Rodriguez was a success. That scene on the club’s stage in the middle of nowhere made film history.
Rammstein Proved Their Reference
Years later, the German band Rammstein quoted that famous music video for the song Engel. Unsurprisingly, the catchy song marked the band’s international breakthrough. The highlight of the video was the snake dance that Salma Hayek had performed so artistically years earlier. But that does not end the series of careers that have been highly successful in a row. Because the band that musically accompanies this dance in the film was also able to enjoy worldwide attention, Tito & Tarantula became world-famous with just one song. So one thing led to another. Director Quentin Tarantino promoted his friend Robert Rodriguez. He, in turn, announced his favourite band Tito & Tarantula, as well as his favourite actress Salma Hayek. In the end, there was a cult film that still causes a stir today.
The wild mixture of road movie, thriller and horror and splatter film is a never-ending tour de force. In other words, precisely the combination that you immediately expect from a Quentin Tarantino. After all, he is known for his cinematic excesses and his polished dialogues. He would also go down in film history with a dance scene was only a surprise to outsiders up until that point. Two years earlier, he had already put Uma Thurman and John Travolta on the dance floor. Their scene in Pulp Fiction is also legendary.
