Quentin Tarantino Says To Expect Only Two More Films


On July 7, Quentin Tarantino was the subject of an homage during the Jerusalem Cinematheque, where he gave an extended commentary on some of his movies, relationships with actors, and his future in film. Before presenting his film Pulp Fiction to the audience, Tarantino stated that he plans to only direct two more films.

Tarantino stated regarding his future, "I'm planning on stopping at 10. So it'll be two more. Even if at 75, if I have this other story to tell, it would still kind of work because that would make those 10. They would be there and that would be that. But the one he did when he was an old f***ing man, that geriatric one exists completely on its own in the old folks' home and is never put in the same shelf next to the other 10. So it doesn't contaminate the other 10."

The 53-year-old director also addressed the theory that he makes movies in threes, to which he mentioned: "I was listening to a podcast and there was a British critic pontificating about my work. And he said something to the degree of: 'Well, Tarantino makes movies in threes'...The first two movies are very symbiotically connected, almost complement each other in a different way. The third movie usually is linked by genre to some degree or another to the first two, but it almost exists as a rebuke to the first two." Tarantino then continued, "He's on to something - even the idea that the third one is almost, in its own way, a critique of the first two. And I thought it was really interesting and it held more water the more I thought about it."

Some of Tarantino's current list of films that he has directed include: Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill: Vol. 1, Kill Bill: Vol. 2, Inglorious Basterds, Django Unchained, and The Hateful Eight.
