Quentin Tarantino said his 10th film will be his last, and as the count gets closer I wonder what he’s got left up his sleeves. He’s one of the reasons, I and many others, have studied film. He’s a trendsetter, an amazing writer and director, and his characters are like none you’ll see anywhere else. If you watch one of his movie’s for the first time you better be ready to sit on the edge of your seat for the next two hours. I thought it’d be appropriate to post an in-depth interview with him, as his past few releases have all come out during the Holidays.
A few questions from the interview:
Is it different now, coming off Django Unchained andInglourious Basterds? Those were the biggest hits of your career. Did that box office change things?
You’ve talked at various times about how, when you’re directing, you like to play your audience like a conductor does an orchestra. As time goes on and audiences become more sophisticated and accustomed to your style, does that become harder?
Back to movies: Steven Spielberg and George Lucas have been pessimistic about the future of the film industry, worrying that if a few tentpoles flopped, it could cause the whole business to implode. Do you share their concern?
