Quentin Tarantino chose
Currently promoting her new book Cinema Speculation, filmmaker Quentin Tarantino recently popped over to SiriusXM for a chat with the famous and controversial Howard Stern. And as reported by varietyamong the various topics discussed, he spoke about the film in his filmography that he considers to be the best.
A priori soon at the end of his career as a director – he himself declares that his 10th feature film will be his last – Quentin Tarantino has finally answered the question always asked of filmmakers, who very rarely answer it. So Reservoir Dogs, pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill 1 and 2, Inglourious Basterds, Boulevard of Death, Django Unchained, The Hateful Eight Where Once Upon a Time in… Hollywood ?
“Once Upon a Time in… Hollywood is my best movie”
The hardcore fans of his Palme d’Or pulp Fiction can rage, the defenders of his first feature film Reservoir Dogs can cry and lovers of his pleasurable diptych Kill Bill can howl, it is his latest film that Quentin Tarantino considers to be his best achievement.
Once Upon a Time in… Hollywood therefore, its fabulous main cast (Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio), its deep melancholy, its homage to Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie) and its declaration of love for the cinema of the 60s.
For years I’ve been asked this question… And I’d say something like, “Oh, they’re all my kids.” But I really think “Once Upon a Time in… Hollywood” is my best movie.
If we stick to the facts, the public and his peers went in the same direction. Indeed, with $374 million harvested at the worldwide box office, it is his most profitable success after Django Unchained ($426 million). And it’s also Quentin Tarantino’s most nominated and awarded film, with a total of 143 awards for 381 nominations.
