The Oscar-winning director Quentin Tarantino He is close to directing “The Movie Critic”, a film that could be his last. According to an exclusive from the specialized media The Hollywood Reporter, sources close to the filmmaker assured that the director of “Pulp Fiction” (1995) plans to start production on the film in the fall of this year.
The film, which does not yet have an associated studio, is based on the script entitled “The Movie Critic” that he wrote himself and which is only known to center its story on a film critic from the seventies.
According to the publication, the tape could be based on the life of Pauline Kael, one of the most influential film critics of her time, famous for her irreverence and little objectivity in her writings, respected by various filmmakers and colleagues, including Tarantino.
In the past, the filmmaker had mentioned that his career as a film director was limited to making ten films and that he wanted to retire at the age of 60.
The nine films that are part of his count are: “Reservoir Dogs” (1992), “Pulp Fiction” (1995), “Jackie Brown” (1997), three “Kill Bill” films (2003), “Death Proof” (2007), “Unglorious Basterds” (2009), “Django Unchained” (2012), “The Hateful Eight” (2015) and “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” (2019).
Tarantino, who will turn 60 in March this year, has also made it clear that the “Kill Bill” saga counts only as one film, and has left out directing works like “My Best Friend’s Birthday.”
His latest film “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” earned ten Oscar nominations, of which he only won two in the category for best lead actor and best production design. In 2022, the director also revealed that he had plans to return to television and recently published his book “Cinema Speculation.”
