Quentin Tarantino he has said for years that he will retire from directing after his tenth film. Well, he’s currently working on her tenth film, The film criticand then… what will he do!?
I hate that he’s trying to step away from movies because I think he could and should continue. If he loves the art of cinema so much, why not stick with it!? Directors like Steven Spielberg, Martin ScorseseAND Clint Eastwood they keep making great movies and will likely die in the middle of directing a project.
If I was lucky enough to be in the position of directing films, it’s something I would never want to stop doing because I love the art of cinema and storytelling so much. It baffles me that someone with so much passion for cinema and movies would want to quit. But, if that’s the route he’s going to take, I’ll back him in it, I just don’t get it.
During a recent interview with Deadline, Tarantino was asked if he is truly retiring from directing and his response was: “[A] movies, yes…” and then continued to discuss what the future holds for him in Hollywood and what he will do next:
“I could do a TV show. I didn’t say I’m going into the dark night, okay? I could do a TV show. I could make a short film. I could act. All kinds of things I could do, but I’ll probably just be more of a writer.”
It’s nice to know he’ll keep getting those creative juices flowing in other ways, but I’m going to miss making movies! She went on to talk about why this is the decision she made:
“I’m running out of filmography. It’s just time. It’s just time to come out. I like the idea of coming out on top. I like the idea of giving it your all for 30 years and then saying, ‘OK, that’s enough. ‘ And I don’t like working for diminishing returns. And I mean, now’s a good time because I mean, what’s a movie again? Is it just something they show at Apple? That would be diminishing returns.”
The director went on to say that he understands the value of home video and streaming platforms, but believes that movies are an art form designed for the cinematic experience:
“Well, I always thought so. And eventually they come to television. I’ve seen a lot of them like that. I’ll probably do the movie with Sony because they’re the last game in town that’s just absolutely, totally, committed to the experience It’s not about feeding their streaming network. They’re committed to the theatrical experience. They judge success by the asses in the seats. And they judge success by the movies that get into the zeitgeist, not just by making a big expensive movie and then put it on your streaming platform. Nobody even knows it’s there.
“I mean, and I don’t blame anyone, but apparently for Netflix, Ryan Reynolds made $50 million with this movie and $50 million with that movie and $50 million with the next movie for them. I don’t know what those movies are. I’ve never seen them.”
“I never spoke to Ryan Reynolds’ agent, but his agent said, ‘Well, it cost $50 million.’ Well, it’s good for him that he’s making so much money. But those movies don’t exist in the zeitgeist. It’s almost like they don’t even exist.”
I 100% understand what you are saying, there are many movies on the streaming service platforms that I have not seen. It really is as if they don’t exist. But it doesn’t have to become part of that system, it can keep making feature films to fight against it, not stop making moves for it. It’s a shame we’ll only get one more feature film from Tarantino. I really hope it’s still the best of him.
