Rarely does a filmmaker have an answer on the tip of his tongue when asked what his best film is, as they see the work in a different way than the public does.
Nonetheless, Quentin Tarantino (‘Kill Bill’) is different.
By participating in the podcast of The Howard Stern Show (via slashfilm🇧🇷he said that he knows very well the impact of each of his films on the minds of the public and on the history of cinema.
Asked which of his films he considers the best, the director argued:
“For years, people used to ask me things like that. And I was always like, ‘Oh, they’re all my kids,’” but then he gave a definitive answer. “I really think ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ is my best movie.”
Some fans believe that ‘pulp Fiction‘ would be his masterpiece because of so many scenes and dialogues that have marked history, such as the dance between the characters of john travolta and Uma Thurman.
Already ‘Rent dogs‘ was the film that catapulted his career by bringing a simple but well-built plot around a group of robbers who deal with the suspicion that there is a traitor among them.
Others claim that ‘Kill Bill‘ seamlessly blended classic westerns with the style of Japanese dramas and oriental action films, thus creating the title that has become synonymous with its filmography.
🇧🇷inglourious bastards‘ also has its merit for portraying the period of World War II as no other film has managed, making room for rewriting history and giving a less painful outcome to the facts.
Nonetheless, Tarantino have personal reasons to rate ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood‘ as his best work.
Unfortunately, the filmmaker did not go into detail about what these reasons would be.
But it is probably due to the narrative, which dialogues directly with the film industry, showing the public how it works behind the scenes, what actors and stuntmen have and all the glamor that surrounds the lives of some celebrities.
So, do you agree with him?
