Quentin Tarantino may retire after 10th film


Quentin Tarantino may quit directing after shooting his 10th movie. The "Pulp Fiction" director is getting ready to release his eighth film, "Django Unchained," which stars Jamie Foxx, but he admits that his self-imposed retirement might not be far off.

He tells Playboy magazine, "I just don't want to be an old-man filmmaker. ... Directors don't get better as they get older. Usually the worst films in their filmography are those last four at the end. I am all about my filmography, and one bad film f---s up three good ones."

"You stop when you stop," he adds. "But in a fanciful world, 10 movies in my filmography would be nice. If I have a change of heart, if I come up with a new story, I could come back. But if I stop at 10, that would be OK as an artistic statement."

What's with the Tarantino hate?   Guy was one of the best filmakers of our time.   Sorry if he wasn't PC enough for you.

Luv to play with them all,

Thanks for exposing your true bigotry, which is why all of you with those beliefs lost millions and the election….LOL

I love his Kill Bill movies. They have outstanding fight scenes and most of the roles carry a lot of depth and charisma (the same for Pulp Fiction as well).

I'm no filmanista, but I did like Sin City, Kill Bill(s,) and Jackie Brown; neutral on Pulp Fiction (I guess 'cuz I'm not a guy;) disliked on principle Inglorious Basterds (sic.) Also I think his collaborative effort with Rodriguez on the 'grindhouse' flicks are a hoot, as well as From Dusk to Dawn. Damn, Tarantino's got a full portfolio; if he wants to lie fallow for a while it's no biggie.
