Our Favorite Speeches: Quentin Tarantino's 'Top Gun' Rant in 'Sleep with Me'

Our Favorite Speeches: Quentin Tarantino's 'Top Gun' Rant in 'Sleep with Me'

Aug 22, 2011

1994 was a big year for the on-screen love triangle for some reason, with Reality Bites, Threesome and Sleep with Me all arriving at the same time. In Sleep with Me, Meg Tilly, Eric Stoltz and Craig Sheffer play good friends who become involved in a complicated love triangle due to the fact that Tilly and Stoltz's characters get married. The film is fairly forgettable except for a fun cameo from Quentin Tarantino, who plays a partygoer named Sid.

See, Sid has this belief that the film Top Gun is actually about a guy (Tom Cruise) coming to terms with being a homosexual. Sid has evidence to back up his claim, and in classic Tarantino form, the writer-director-actor lets go of one of his more famous monologues, delivered at 100mph as only Tarantino is known to do. 1994 was a good year for the filmmaker as it also marked the debut of Pulp Fiction, which would go on to become Tarantino's most popular film, and the one that would catapult him to super-stardom.
