A roundtable director discussion presented by The Hollywood Reporter, Quentin Tarantino gets honest about his oeuvre to date, targeting Death Proof, his entry in Grindhouse, which starred Kurt Russell as a psychopath who loved to use his muscle cars to kill people.
“I’m really well versed on a lot of directors’ careers, you know, and when you look at those last five films when they were past it, when they were too old, and they’re really out of touch with the times…” Tarantino said. Head inside for more.
Tarantino continued, “To me, it’s all about my filmography, and I want to go out with a terrific filmography. Death Proof has got to be the worst movie I ever make. And for a left-handed movie, that wasn’t so bad, all right? — so if that’s the worst I ever get, I’m good. But I do think one of those out-of-touch, old, limp, flaccid-dick movies costs you three good movies as far as your rating is concerned.”
