Washington [US]June 5th (ANI): Despite being one of Hollywood’s most famous directors today, Quentin Tarantino is still sticking to his decision to retire from filmmaking after making 10 films in the past.
The director and screenwriter of “Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood” spoke about his upcoming retirement during a podcast this week, trying to avoid the possibility of ending his career with a bad movie.
Tarantino said, “Most directors have terrible final films. Usually their worst films are their last films. That ended up being the case for most New Hollywood directors who made their last films in the late 80s and 90s. “
Taking Arthur Penn’s ‘Bonnie & Clyde’ as an example of this pattern, the ‘Django Unchained’ Oscar winner said, “I’m not a huge fan of this director, but the fact that Arthur Penn’s last film Penn & Teller Get Teller is Killed is one Metaphor for how lousy most of the recent New Hollywood directors’ films have been, so it’s rare to end your career with a decent film.
He went on, “I mean, the last few films most directors have made are bloody lousy. Maybe I shouldn’t do another film because I might be really happy to drop the microphone.”
“Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood” was Tarantino’s ninth film, which received 10 nominations at the 92nd Academy Awards. While the director previously stated that he would limit his career to 10 films, he joked that it would quit if the 2019 film was “really well received” prior to its release. (ANI)
