Two-time Academy Award-winning director Quentin Tarantino once again informed his plans of retiring after directing one more film stating it is better to bid goodbye when he is at his peak. Known for his blockbusters films like Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill: Volume 1 and Volume 2, Inglourious Basterds, Django Unchained and 2019's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, the 58-year-old filmmaker has said that he wants to walk away from cinema as he has given "everything" he had during the course of his 30-year long illustrious career. Quentin confirmed his retirement plans after his tenth directorial on Real Time With Bill Maher when he appeared to promote his novel Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which is based on his ninth film of the same title.
Bill Maher said, "You're too young to quit and you're at the top of your game", to which Quentin replied, "That's why I want to quit. Because I know film history and from here on end, directors do not get better." He added, "I don't have a reason that I would want to say out loud that's going to win any argument in the court of public opinion or supreme court or anything like that. At the same time, working for 30 years doing as many movies as I've done is not as many as other people but that's a long career. That's a really long career. And I've given it everything I have." Bill then stated that practise makes perfect and put forward his thoughts about a Reservoir Dogs reboot being better than the director's 1992 feature debut.
Quentin Tarantino admitted that he at one point "considered" similar plans for Once Upon a Time Hollywood, but concluded that it wouldn't have been the best decision. "I won't do it, Internet! But I considered it," he said. Quentin's ninth film, Once Upon a Time Hollywood, released in 2019 to worldwide acclaim, was billed to be his love letter to the art of filmmaking and Hollywood during the 60s and early 70s, which landed 10 Academy Award nominations, while winning the Best Supporting Actor award for Brad Pitt and the Best Production Design.
