It was sad news for cinephiles. The Director of Reservoir Dogs has decided to retire after his upcoming film, his tenth. Quentin Tarantino was speaking at Real Time With Bill Maher on his path-breaking career and also on the book companion to Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.
Most of Quentin Tarantino’s movies have turned into cult classics and box office successes, a rarity in the industry. He has been an inspiration for many filmmakers. And he has covered various genres from Reservoir Dogs to Kill Bill in a career spanning 30 years.
Quentin Tarantino Speaks About Retiring At His Prime
Bill Maher hit the nail on the head when he asked Quentin Tarantino about the ‘nonsense’ that he was going to make only one more movie. He was at a loss for words before he blurted out that he wanted to quit when he was at the top of his career. Bill Maher retorted instantly that how did he know that he was at his top.
He feels that he has reached a plateau and as he said that directors don’t get any better after they had reached his position. Once Upon A Time In Hollywood had been nominated for 10 academy awards, winning two. That had prompted him to remark that perhaps his 1992 classic, Reservoir Dogs could do with a remake.
He said that 30 years was a long career. Though he might not have done many movies, he has given his all to his career. He has not revealed much at this stage on his next which will also be his last project. But there could be a chapter added to the Kill Bill legacy. Or even a Reservoir Dogs remake, which he admitted he has considered. There is also his unfulfilled dream of making a Star Trek movie. But any of them would be the perfect end to his illustrious career.
