Quentin Tarantino’s alleged last film is reportedly called ‘The Movie Critic’. According to a report, the acclaimed filmmaker is planning to direct the film this autumn, which is likely to be set in late 1970s Los Angeles and feature a female lead. For now, one can only assume who The Movie Critic will be based on, given that the director is notorious for basing his characters on existing material. Reports believe that the film may depict the story of famous US film critic Pauline Kael, who briefly worked as a consultant at Paramount Pictures in the late 1970s. The timeline matches the script’s reported setting.
The Hollywood Reporter report claims that Movie Critic currently does not have a production studio and will be offered to buyers ‘early this week’. Tarantino has previously shown his admiration for critic Kael, claiming that he was a huge influence on him – even publishing a book of essays called ‘Cinema Speculations’, which was inspired by his works. .
The filmmaker has expressed views about his retirement in the past as well, claiming that the director has become out of touch with age. “I want to stop at a certain point. Directors don’t get better as they get older. Usually, the worst movies in their filmography end up being the last four. I’m all about my filmography, and a bad one.” movie f,Three is good,” he said in a 2012 interview (via Entertainment Weekly). “I don’t want that bad, out-of-touch comedy in my filmography, that movie that makes people think, ‘ Oh man, he still thinks it was 20 years ago. When directors get old, it’s not cool.”
Tarantino previously worked with Sony Pictures for the Oscar-nominated Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which THR believes could be a strong contender to make The Movie Critic as well. The film won two Oscars – Best Supporting Actor (Brad Pitt) and Best Production Design – after which the author published a novel version of the same, making his debut as an author. An audiobook for the same was also released in 2021, narrated by Jennifer Jason Leigh, who previously collaborated with the filmmaker on The Hateful Eight.
MovieCritic will be the tenth and likely final film directed by Tarantino – if you combine both Kill Bill versions into one mega-movie – as he attempts to avoid the ‘terrible last movie’ curse (via Moviemaker). Late last year, the filmmaker also revealed plans to shoot an eight-episode-long limited series in 2023, rumored to be with Netflix. He has experience working in television – directing two episodes of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation in 2005. The Season 5 finale ‘Grave Danger’ earned him an Outstanding Director nomination at the 57th Emmy Awards.
