Cinephile or not, you’ve probably heard of Quentin Tarantino. The director and screenwriter is one of the most celebrated figures in the history of cinema and has brought to life unforgettable works such as Pulp Fiction: Time of Violence (1994), Rent dogs (1992), Django Unchained (2012) and inglourious bastards (2009). However, the artist’s trajectory may be coming to an end with the release of his tenth film, called The Movie Criticwhich should end the filmmaker’s successful career.

According to an article by The Hollywood Reporter, Tarantino’s new film has already been scripted by the director himself and, at the moment, is about to start production, which should start, in fact, during the North American autumn (between September and November ). For now, the film still does not have a distributor, but it is speculated that Sony is ahead in the race for the rights to the project due to the good relationship between the company and Tarantino. Also remembering that the company was responsible for distributing the director’s most recent film, Once Upon a Time in… Hollywood (2019).

The Movie Critic: What will Tarantino’s last film be about?
According to the THR report, The Movie Critic, which will be Tarantino’s tenth film, is set in Los Angeles in the late 1970s and features a female lead. Due to this information, it is speculated that the plot of the production will revolve around Pauline Kael, a famous film critic who wrote for the American magazine The New Yorker between 1968 and 1991 (the year in which she retired).

This idea is further reinforced by Tarantino’s praise of Kael over time, including in the documentary What She Said: The Art of Pauline Kael (2018). So far, however, the official script theme and cast have not been announced.
Is Tarantino really retiring?
In several interviews, Tarantino stated that he would have two conditions to retire: make 10 films or turn 60. Whichever came first. So far, the filmmaker has produced 9 feature films and, at the end of this month of March (on the 27th), he will turn 60 years old. That is, everything seems to have been well planned for the director to leave Hollywood at the expected time.
In a 2012 interview with Playboy magazine, he said, “I want to stop at a specific point. Directors don’t get better as time goes by. Generally, their worst films are the last four. I care a lot about my filmography, and one bad movie can spoil three other good ones. I don’t want this bad, outdated comedy in my filmography, a movie that makes people think ‘oh man, he still thinks we’re 20 years in the past’. When directors get stuck in time , is not cool”.
