The blockbuster filmmaker of Hollywood, Quentin Tarantino, who is known for helming films like Kill Bill series, Inglorious Bastards, Django Unchained and many others, has shocked fans with his latest statement as he said that he is planning to take an early retirement from the showbiz.
During a recent appearance on the Pure Cinema Podcast, Quentin Tarantino spoke about the last films made by directors. He said, “Most directors have horrible last films. Usually, their worst films are their last movies. That’s the case for most of the Golden Age directors that ended up making their last films in the late ’60s and the “70s, then that ended up being the case for most of the New Hollywood directors who made their last films in the late ’80s and the ’90s.”
Quentin Tarantino added further, “I mean, most directors’ last films are lousy. Maybe I should not make another movie because I could be really, really happy with dropping the mic on Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
Giving an example to support his statement, Quentin Tarantino said, “The fact that Arthur Penn’s (Bonnie & Clyde fame director) last movie is Penn & Teller Get Killed is, like, a metaphor for how crummy most of the New Hollywood directors’ last, last films were.” He added, “So, to actually end your career on a decent movie is rare. To end it with, like, a good movie is kind of phenomenal. It’s just rare.
The director whose last release was much-loved Once Upon a Time in Hollywood starring Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Margot Robbie said he might be contemplating an early retirement.
Whatever being said, the retirement of a legend like Tarantino quitting would be a massive void and much would be left. However it may be a speculation hope that the speculation doesn’t turn into a reality.
