Quentin Tarantino Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Quentin Jerome Tarantino wasborn on 27 March 1963, in Knoxville, Tennessee USA of Italian (father) and Irish and Cherokee (mother) descent, although his parents separated before his birth. He is a well-respected screenwriter, actor, film director and producer, writer, as well as a voice actor, perhaps best known for his film ‘Pulp Fiction’ which received a number of awards.

How rich is Quentin Tarantino? According to sources, Quentin’s net worth is estimated to be $90 million, his impressive net worth being virtually totally thanks to the movies he has directed and produced during his career in films stretching over almost 30 years.

Quentin Tarantino Net Worth $90 Million

Quentin Tarantino dropped out of school at 15 to enrol in an acting class full-time at the James Best Theater Company, but grew bored with that and went to work in a video rental store, paying close attention to the types of films which were popular. He co-wrote his first screenplay in 1987, a movie entitled “My Best Friend’s Birthday” in which he also portrayed one of the main characters, but part of which was destroyed prior to release; however, it subsequently formed the basis for “True Romance”.

In 1992, Tarantino’s directing career took-off with “Reservoir Dogs”, which was shown at the Sundance Film Festival, and became an instant hit with many positive reviews. The film grossed over $2.8 million at the box office, comfortably covering its $1.2 million budget. Tarantino continued to write screenplays and sold his script for “True Romance”, as well as “Natural Born Killers” for which he was credited in the movies, and with the success of “Reservoir Dogs”, Tarantino received offers to work on “Speed” and “Men in Black” with Will Smith, but chose to focus on his film “Pulp Fiction” instead.

“Pulp Fiction” was released in 1994, causing a sensation during its opening night. Considered to be a prime example of a post-modern film, “Pulp Fiction” became a worldwide commercial success with over $107 million at the United States box office. The movie, starring John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Uma Thurman and Tim Roth, was nominated for seven Oscars, and at the 1994 Cannes Film Festival was given the Palm d’Or (Golden Palm) award.These nominations and awards did no harm to Taratino’s reputation, as well as to his net worth.

Quentin Tarantino followed his success with a thriller film titled “Kill Bill” that was released as two films “Kill Bill: Vol 1” and “Kill Bill: Vol 2”. The movies, whose main roles were played by Uma Thurman, Lucy Liu and Michael Madsen, grossed over $333 million at the box office worldwide. The revenue collected from these movies immensely increased Quentin Tarantino’s net worth.

Tarantino’s fthurer success came with the release of “Inglourious Basterds” in 2009, a war film with the main characters portrayed by Brad Pitt, Michael Fassbender, and Diane Kruger. The movie grossed over $321 million worldwide and became the highest-grossing film that Tarantino had written and directed at the time. Tarantino’s most recent production is a movie with Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio and Samuel L  Jackson starring called “Django Unchained”. An Academy Award and Golden Globe Awards winner, “Django Unchained” has grossed over $425 million worldwide to date, and so has become Tarantino’s most successful movie in pure financial terms.His net worth continued to rise.

Currently, Quentin Tarantino is working on another movie tentatively called “The Hateful Eight” and will feature Samuel L Jackson, Tim Roth, and Michael Madsen in the main roles, and due for release in 2015.

BAFTA Awards, Golden Globe Awards, as well as Academy Awards winner, Quentin Tarantino is undoubtedly one of the most successful film directors and producers. Quentin Tarantino’s status and importance in the entertainment industry is not only proven by his $90 million worth of net worth but the number of remarkable movies he has written and produced.

In his personal life, Quentin Tarantino  has been romantically linked with several actresses and directors, particularly with Uma Thurman but has remained single from, as he puts it, personal choice, possibly until he is 60, when he indicates that he will retire.

Looks like we don't have Quentin Tarantino salary information. Sorry!


#Fact
1 Announced his retirement after two more films.[November 2016].
2 Lady Snowblood (1973) and Lady Snowblood 2: Love Song of Vengeance (1974) were big influences for his Kill Bill films.
3 President of the 'Official Competition' jury at the 67th Venice International Film Festival in 2010.
4 One of his biggest pet peeves while filming is actors and crew members napping on set. In his words "It always kinda bugged me so I came up with something where it wouldn't bug me." That something was a huge purple dildo named "Big Jerry". When ever an actor or crew member dozes off on set Quentin puts "Big Jerry" as close to the offenders face as he can without waking them and snaps photos that are hung on "The Wall of Shame" on set. Several photos of A-list actors and "Big Jerry" exist. All in good humor and fun according to the director.
5 Detests CGI (Computer-generated imagery) trickery, opting not to shoot a sequence at all unless it can be accomplished 'in-camera'. If a chase has to be filmed at 80mph, it must be captured as it happens and not faked with camera under-cranking.
6 Insists on being beside the camera at all times during a take. The notion of being in another room watching his actors perform on a video-assist monitor is both anathema and unacceptable to him.
7 One of his biggest influences in filmmaking is Kar-Wai Wong's film Chungking Express (1994). He helped get the film distribution in North America.
8 Counts director Terry Gilliam as a major mentor, even according him a "Special Thanks" credit in Reservoir Dogs (1992).
9 Is a fan of sexploitation filmmaker Russ Meyer. He has expressed interest in remaking his film Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! (1965).
10 Forbids all cell phones on the set when shooting, insisting that all such devices be turned in at point of entry - no exceptions.
11 Is a huge fan of the cult classic drama film Showgirls (1995) by Paul Verhoeven.
12 One of his favorite horror films is the original Black Christmas (1974). His tradition is to watch the film in his home theater every Christmas season.
13 Among his favorite authors is a Russian poet Boris Pasternak, whose grave Tarantino had visited in June 2004, while visiting Moscow Film Festival.
14 He was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6927 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California on December 21, 2015.
15 Owns the New Beverly Cinema in Los Angeles, the theater where he often saw double features as a kid. He helped the prior owner to keep it afloat and stay open with a $5000/mo subsidy. Subsequently, he bought the building in December 2007 to save the revival theater from being redeveloped into a Supercuts. In October 2014, he assumed full ownership and programs the theater's slate personally with kid's matinées, double features nightly, midnight showings on the weekends, vintage shorts/cartoons and a commitment to always show in 35mm celluloid film.
16 Has indicated a desire to adapt his screenplays Reservoir Dogs (1992) and The Hateful Eight (2015) for theatrical live performances.
17 Filmed his latest film The Hateful Eight (2015) using the Ultra Panavision 70 film process This rare film process has not been used for 50 years despite the technical advantages it offers over current technology.
18 Plans to retire after his 10th major film. He has stated he would like to write novels, books on film history, plays and work as a theater director.
19 Got his first job in the film industry at age 16, by lying about his age, as an usher at Pussycat Theater, a porn theater in Torrance, California.
20 Worked at Video Archives in Manhattan Beach, California from 1985-1990 with future filmmakers Roger Avary and Daniel Synder. He became well know to local residents for his extensive knowledge of world cinema and eclectic, customer tailored video recommendations. He wrote several screenplays during his time at Video Archives including Reservoir Dogs (1992) True Romance (1993) and Natural Born Killers (1994). He purchased the entire stores video inventory of 8000 titles when it closed that he prefers watching to using video streaming services, like Netflix.
21 First job was collecting quarters and restocking magazines from automated magazine boxes that dispensed pornographic titles.
22 As of September 2015, Tarantino's films have grossed $1,407,548,403 worldwide.
23 Has expressed his desire to work with Kate Winslet, Johnny Depp, Meryl Streep, Simon Pegg and Michael Caine.
24 Was working on a script titled The Vega Brothers, which would follow Vincent Vega from Pulp Fiction (1994) played by John Travolta, and Vic Vega from Reservoir Dogs (1992) played by Michael Madsen. However, when considering the current ages of the actors, he said "It's kind of unlikely now." Tarantino made Inglourious Basterds (2009) instead.

26 Cites Melville's Le Doulos (1963) as the best screenplay ever.
27 Krishnan Guru-Murthy introduced the subject of movie violence during an interview, in the wake of "Django Unchained", with Quentin Tarantino on Channel Four News.

28 Stated on a radio interview that the one thing he cannot stand seeing in movies is real animal and insect death or torture, and that real acts of violence have no place in film, which is about realism through artifice.

32 Did not become interested in writing and directing until he was in his early twenties.
33 Has said that the three films that have most influenced him as a director are: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966) (which he says "is obvious"), Mario Bava's Black Sabbath (1963) (because that taught him the importance of having a distinct directorial voice), and Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948) (because that taught him about mixing genres).

69 Often references numerous attributes of the works of Jean-Luc Godard, particularly in Pulp Fiction (1994). The disjointed structure of Pulp Fiction (1994) may itself be an homage to Godard's use of jump cuts in Breathless (1960), the film that launched the French New Wave of cinema.
70 Named his production company, A Band Apart, after the Jean-Luc Godard film Band of Outsiders (1964).
71 Frequently cites Rio Bravo (1959), The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966) and Battle Royale (2000) among his favorite films.

78 A vocal proponent of celluloid-over-digital filmmaking, Tarantino got his first experience with the latter technology by directing a segment of the film Sin City (2005) with his friend Robert Rodriguez.

At the end of shooting, Tarantino is reported to have said simply, "Mission accomplished.".
79 His mother Connie McHugh was only age 16 when she gave birth to him.
80 Despite the constant comparison between them amongst fans, he considers fellow director Paul Thomas Anderson to be one of his best friends. In fact, Tarantino has praised Anderson's work, calling him a "filmmaking artist".
81 In the last Sight & Sound Greatest Films Poll (2002), he listed his Top Ten films as: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966) (Leone), Rio Bravo (1959) (Hawks), Taxi Driver (1976) (Scorsese), His Girl Friday (1940) (Hawks), Rolling Thunder (1977) (Flynn), They All Laughed (1981) (Bogdanovich), The Great Escape (1963) (J.

83 Was at one point in his life considering to become a novelist. He said that he tried writing two chapters of a novel about his experiences working at the Video Archives in Manhattan Beach.

89 Two of Tarantino's favorite films are Manos: The Hands of Fate (1966) (which he owns a 35mm copy of) and Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982), which he references in Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003).

93 Is a huge fan of The Three Stooges.

95 He was an unlisted screenwriter for Tony Scott's Crimson Tide (1995). He was brought in to punch up the script's dialogue, reportedly adding the Silver Surfer scene, submarine movie scene, racist horse monologue among other polishes.

101 Was planning to direct an episode of The X-Files (1993) but refused to join the Director's Guild of America. The Guild refused his request for a waiver so that he could direct the series. [November 1996]

103 Was sued by Don Murphy for $5,000,000, accused of assault. Tarantino attacked Murphy in restaurant, slammed him against the wall and punched him. [November 1997]

#Quote
1 To me, one of the things about Rio Bravo (1959) that's so wonderful... well, there's all kinds of things that are really great about it. It's one of the greatest westerns, it's one of the greatest Howard Hawks films, it's one of the greatest John Wayne movies. But it also fits into another genre because I'm all about putting movies into sub-genres, and it's also one of the great "hang-out" movies. There are certain movies where you are hanging out with the characters so much that that it's like they actually become your friends, and it's a really rare quality to have in a film. Movies like that are usually quite long, and it's great to see them again and again. It's like you're just hanging out with John T. Chance, Dude, Stumpy and Feathers.
2 I'm not going to tell you how I believe, but yes, I do believe in God.
3 [on Kodak's new Super 8 camera and film in general] On film, there's a special magic on a set when you say 'action' and to the point that the take runs until you say 'cut,' that's a sacred time. I've always believed in the magic of movies and to me the magic is connected to film. When you're filming something on film you aren't recording movement, you're taking a series of still pictures and when shown at 24 frames per second through a lightbulb, THAT creates the illusion of movement. That illusion is connected to the magic of making movies. The fact that Kodak is giving a new generation of filmmakers the opportunity to shoot on Super 8 is truly an incredible gift. [2016]
4 [in answer to film critic why his films were always extremely violent] Because it's so much fun, Jan!
5 [on Johnny Depp - The Playlist, December 30, 2012] We would love to work together. We've talked about it for years. Not that we get together and talk about it for years, but from time to time. We're obviously fans of each other. It just needs to be the right character. I just need to write the right character that I think Johnny would be the right guy to do it with. And if he agrees, then we'll do it. And then it'll be magical. I haven't written the perfect character for Johnny Depp as of yet. Maybe someday I will, maybe someday I won't. We'll see.
6 [November 23, 2015] I'd really love to work with Kate Winslet, I think she's amazing and does a great job.
7 My dialogue are not for everyone. Doesn't matter the quality of the actor, not everyone has timing or humor for the lines I wrote.
8 I think Kate Winslet is one of the best actresses that ever lived, so I would be honored to work with her.
9 To me, Godard did to movies what Bob Dylan did to music - they both revolutionized their forms.
10 [on La piel que habito (2011)] That was [Pedro Almodóvar] doing a horror film, and it was fucking amazing. I totally got the impression that - and I'm fairly sure I'm right about this - Pedro was watching The Human Centipede (First Sequence) (2009) and thinking, "You know, I know how to do this. I could do something really special with this." And that was La piel que habito (2011)
11 When people in America talk about the great writer-director auteurs, they don't talk about Pedro Almodóvar enough. For 30 years, he has dwarfed almost all of his American peers. He went through a slightly weak period around the time of Kika (1993) and All About My Mother (1999). I didn't get Broken Embraces (2009), but it was still okay. But the things he's been doing the last seven years, he's been on a magnificent roll. He's a fantastic director. His scripts are wonderful, and he's just money in the bank. And he's so specific, but as opposed to a lot of these specific art-film directors that you're going to get tired of, like Kar-Wai Wong, you never get tired of Almodóvar. Because as much as he has these recognizable elements, it never just seems like the same movie over and over again.
12 I don't want to talk about the implications of violence. The reason I don't want to talk about it is because I've said everything I have to say about it. If anyone cares what I have to say about it they can Google me and they can look for twenty years what I have to say. I haven't changed my opinion one iota.
13 [on film violence vs real-life violence] All the movies I'm basing my movies on I saw as a kid and yes, kids go to a movie theater, they can tell the difference. Maybe you couldn't when you were a kid but I could.
14 [in response to criticisms that Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003) is overly brutal] Innocent people die along the way because, unfortunately that's the story of revenge. Revenge is messy. It never works out the way you want it to.
15 As far as I'm concerned, digital projection is the end of cinema. The fact that most films aren't presented in 35 mm means that the world is lost. Digital projection is just television in cinema. I'm very hopeful that future generations will be much smarter than this generation and realize what they lost.
16 [on fan expectations] That's not a pressure I ever feel. That should always be there. I want people to expect a lot from me, I want people waiting with great anticipation for my next movie. Growing up I felt that way. The week before Scarface (1983) came out was Scarface week... That kind of excitement is what helps keep a filmmaker alive and vital.
17 I've always actually thought of Pulp Fiction (1994) as a Rock 'n' Roll Spaghetti Western.
18 If I'm on an airplane, a Kate Hudson movie is what I'm looking for. I'll sit there and I'll cry... I think it's the altitude or something like that.
19 I've always considered myself a filmmaker who writes stuff for himself to do.
20 I'm very happy with the way I write. I think I do it good. But I've never really considered myself a writer.
21 [on what his most personal film is] Probably "Kill Bill".
22 [acceptance speech winning the Oscar for Best Screenplay for Pulp Fiction (1994)] Uh thanks! Uh, this has been a very strange year. I can definitely say that. Uh, you know what? I was trying to think...I think this is the only award I'm going to win here tonight, so I was trying to think, maybe I should say a whole lot of stuff, right here right now, just get it out of my system, you know, all year long, everything roiling up, and everything, just blow it all, just tonight, just say everything! But I'm not. Thanks.
23 [on Pulp Fiction (1994)] Three stories about one story.
24 [on Reservoir Dogs (1992)] This movie was never meant to be everything for everybody. And I don't mean that as a slam. I'm just saying I made this movie for myself and everybody else is invited.
25 If you just love movies enough, you can make a good one.
26 (on once working at an adult movie theater) To me, the greatest job a person could ever have is being an usher at a movie theater. You get to go to a movie theater all day long, and then you get to see all the movies for free. Irony of ironies, I end up getting a job at a movie theater where I could care less about the movies and was totally bored by them.
27 [on the inspiration for Pulp Fiction (1994)] And so I thought the idea that would, in the case of Pulp Fiction, would be kind of cool, was to take three separate stories, and make them the oldest stories in the book, whether it be, um...Vincent's character, the hoodlum, has to go out with the boss's lady, but don't touch her! And there's the whole history of people who *have* touched her, and what happens. Well we've seen that before, a zillion times...and the case of the Bruce Willis story, that the boxer's supposed to throw the fight, and he doesn't, and now the mob's after him...we've seen that story a million times as well. And one of the things I thought about, like, the third story, was basically kind of the beginning of, at that time, almost every Joel Silver movie, which would start off with like a couple hit men showing up, boom boom, alright, 'you wanna witness something witness this!' (makes gun shooting noise, laughs). And then they shoot the guy and it cuts to Arnold Schwarzenegger walking through the forest and eventually he's gonna meet those guys. And so I thought, what happens if we hung out with them? All night long? Or...all day long? After they've killed the guy, what happens with the rest of their day? And so it was like taking these, these chestnuts and putting them together and then, actually having the characters kind of intertwine and it all kind of takes place in one...city, and it's an environment that they all live in, and characters kind of know each other, but you don't know that for a while. And we're just kind of hanging out with them for those two days.
28 If I wasn't a filmmaker, I'd be a film critic. It's the only thing I'd be qualified to do.
29 If I was doing Kill Bill all over again - I'd be tempted to do it in 3D, at least Volume I.
30 [on the British film industry] When I first came here in 1992 with Reservoir Dogs (1992) the film industry was very dire. The movies were Enchanted April (1991) and crap like that. But that has changed, and this year has highlighted how it's changed. You guys actually have a genuine, honest-to-goodness, bona fide film industry again, and that is fantastic.
31 If there is something magic about the collaborations I have with actors it's because I put the character first.
32 Here's my problem with this whole influence thing. Instead of critics reviewing my movies, now what they're really doing is trying to match wits with me. Every time they review my movies, it's like they want to play chess with the mastermind and show off every reference they can find, even when half of it is all of their own making. It feels like the critics are IMDB-ing everything I do. It just rubs me the wrong way because they end up using it as a stick to beat me down with.
33 [on the time spent watching old World War II movies that gave him the confidence to embark on Inglourious Basterds (2009)] - It wasn't that I needed permission. But what really struck me was that these were films made by directors who'd had to flee their country because of Hitler, and yet the movies they made weren't all terror or horror. In fact, while they definitely showed the Nazis and their cruelty, they were adventure films, whether you're talking about "Hangmen Also Die" or "Reunion in France" or "To Be or Not to Be" or "O.S.S.", an Alan Ladd film that's like a prequel to "The Good Shepherd". They were fun and thrilling and exciting and, most amazingly, they had a lot of comedy in them, which really made an impact on me. I mean, for every movie with a sadistic Nazi, there's one with a Nazi who's more of a buffoon or a figure of ridicule.
34 [on Inglourious Basterds (2009) being not just a revenge fantasy about World War II, but a torture and terrorism fantasy] - Definitely. You took it right out of my mouth. Yes. I mean, basically what they're doing - you described it really, really well. To put in even shorter nutshell, they're actually doing literally the Apache resistance, but against the Nazis, against the Germans. And that was one of the things - one of the reasons I wanted to do something like that, other than for all the other reasons you said before about - it's a revenge fantasy and this and that. We've never seen it before. I was trying to do like a spaghetti western but using World War II iconography. So in my re-imagining of this whole thing, I kind of placed the Jews as the Indians in this scenario. And that is part of the whole thing. You know, when they say they ambush a German patrol of six guys and then they scalp them, maybe even take their shoes off, so when they are found there is even less dignity in the death - all these little things that they do.
35 [on Inglourious Basterds (2009) being the modern strategic history of al-Qaeda] - Yes. ... Now, I've seen people who have seen the movie like three or four times and it never quite sinks into them. But that was never something that I necessarily set out to do. I wasn't trying to make a terrorist Iraq commentary with the film. It was just what made sense for the characters to do at that time. Yes they're strapping bombs on themselves. ... And they're walking into a theater crowded with evil civilians and they are prepared to blow it up. ... Even the character, Landa, the Jew hunter, the Nazi character in the film - he even makes a reference to it. He goes your mission - some would call it a terrorist plot - is kaput. ... It was funny. Again, I wasn't trying to necessarily make a political point in there. It literally was just the next step in the story as far as I was concerned. However, once I did it, the irony was not lost on me at all. But you know, that was one of the things that I actually thought that - it was one of the things that when I was all done. Because I think there are a lot of things like that - not about that issue, but there's a lot of things in this movie that are not used to seeing in other World War II movies. I thought that was one of the aspects that would actually make the movie not just seem like a World War II movie that it's like here and you're looking at it in the eyes of the past. I wanted the film sort of the way "Bonnie and Clyde" worked when it came out. It was an old genre took place in the '30s, but it was actually telling you something about the time today. And that was what I was trying to do with this in this genre.
36 [on Inglourious Basterds (2009) being a catharsis and multi-layered] - I mean, it would be easy to just set up a situation where we just go oh, kill the Nazis, rah, rah. But I don't play it that easy. Like for instance, on the interrogation scene that you just saw, under any criteria of bravery in warfare, that German passes the test under any criteria. And, yes it would have been easy to make him a cringing coward and it would have been more rah, rah, rah in the audience. It would be like watching "Rocky". But you know, that's too easy for what I'm trying to do.
37 [on Avatar (2009)] I'm not James Cameron and I could never think like that - I don't think he could think like me either - but if I could go into a time machine and think like that and be able to do what he could do, that would be great.
38 When I first discovered Howard Hawks, I spent a year and a half reading the TV Guide and they played about 80 percent of his entire oeuvre on Los Angeles television. Brian De Palma, Martin Scorsese, Sergio Leone and Hawks were a huge influence on me.
39 There's my realer-than-real movies like Reservoir Dogs (1992). And then there's my movie-movies. And Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003) is definitely one of those. It's the movies that Jules and Vince (from Pulp Fiction (1994)) would go and see...I always thought of Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003) as my Apocalypse Now (1979) and that House of Blue Leaves is my 'Ride of the Valkyries' helicopter sequences.
40 CGI has fully ruined car crashes. Because how can you be impressed with them now? When you watch them in the '70s, it was real cars, real metal, real blasts. They're really doing it and risking their lives. But I knew CGI was gonna start taking over.
41 I think the opening chapter of Inglourious Basterds (2009) is one of the best things I've ever written - before that sequence my best piece of writing would be the Sicilian sequence in the True Romance (1993) script; that was the best thing I'd ever done in a beginning to end piece. And I think I finally matched it, or topped it with that sequence so I knew I couldn't just let it go. I would have been haunted by it and I wouldn't be able to move on to anything else until I had it out of the way.
42 [on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" (1993)_, when asked how he comes up with such good dialog] Well, not to be facetious or anything, but... I'm a good writer!
43 [on why his characters in Inglourious Basterds (2009) use Native American fighting tactics] I'm actually equating the Jews in this situation, in World War II, with the Indians. It's not nothing that they're doing Apache resistance. It's not about dying. It's about killing. They ambush their guys. They trick the enemy. It's not a straight-up fight. And then they go and they just completely desecrate the bodies to win a psychological war.
44 When you gotta go out and make a movie to pay for the kid's private school and for the three ex-wives, don't talk to me about your artistry. It's their job. It's not my job. It's my calling.
45 Some people will like Inglourious Basterds (2009). Some people won't. But it was made with all the passion I've made everything with - except maybe my first film, which was probably made with more passion than I'll ever have again.
46 I've had people write that I've seen too many movies. In what other art form would being an expert be considered a negative? If I were a poet, would I be criticized for knowing too much about Sappho? Or Aristotle?
47 [on the Cannes Film Festival] I just like Cannes. It's like the whole planet is checking your movie out - boom! - at one time, and - bam! - it either works or it doesn't. And especially when I'm there - it's the closest thing to Muhammad Ali having a championship fight. It's just - bam! You're throwing it down.
48 [on how The Dirty Dozen (1967) could never be made today] Ernest Borgnine. Charles Bronson. Those guys were real men. They were a different breed. Many of them had been to war. Today's young actors are soft.
49 [on the death of David Carradine] He was a dream to direct, a fantastic actor, a great character actor and really one of Hollywood's great mad geniuses.
50 When I give props to these movies, you have to understand - it's not like they were all good. There's an expression: You have to drink a lot of milk before you can appreciate cream. Well, with exploitation movies, you have to drink a lot of milk-gone-bad before you can even appreciate milk! That's what part of the love of these movies is - going through the rummage bin and finding the jewels.
51 I don't believe in putting in music as a band aid to get you over some rough parts or bad film making. If it's there it's got to add to it or take it to another level.
52 There's only one list that's more illustrious than the list of directors who won the Palme d'Or. It's the list of directors who didn't.
53 The exploitation films were made in such an artless way with these big wide shots of Sunset Boulevard or of Arcadia or downtown L.A. or wherever. In mainstream films, especially in the 1980s, the Los Angeles you saw wasn't the real one; it was a character with this back-lot sort of atmosphere. They tried to luxuriate it. In exploitation films, you see what the place really looked like, you see the bars and mom-and-pop restaurants.
54 I'm never going to be shy about anything, what I write about is what I know; it's more about my version of the truth as I know it. That's part of my talent, really - putting the way people really speak into the things I write. My only obligation is to my characters. And they came from where I have been.
55 [on making another "Kill Bill" movie] Oh yeah, initially I was thinking this would be my "Dollars Trilogy". I was going to do a new one every ten years. But I need at least fifteen years before I do this again. I've already got the whole mythology: Sofie Fatale will get all of Bill's money. She'll raise Nikki, who'll take on The Bride. Nikki deserves her revenge every bit as much as The Bride deserved hers. I might even shoot a couple of scenes for it now so I can get the actresses while they're this age.
56 I've come to a point where I like Pauline Kael's reviews of Godard more than Godard's films.
57 I will never do 'Pulp Fiction 2', but having said that, I could very well do other movies with these characters.
58 I hope to give you at least 15 more years of movies. I'm not going to be this old guy that keeps cranking them out. My plan is to have a theater by that time in some small town and I will be the manager - this crazy old movie guy. (March 2005)
59 If you want to make a movie, make it. Don't wait for a grant, don't wait for the perfect circumstances, just make it. - Giving advice to young aspiring filmmakers at the 1994 Independent Spirit Awards.
60 On Thriller: A Cruel Picture (1973) and its influences on Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003): And that is, of all the revenge movies I've ever seen, that is definitely the roughest. The roughest revenge movie ever made! There's never been anything as tough as that movie.
61 On directing the ER (1994) episode "Motherhood": When I was directing ER, I didn't want to stand out. Everyone else is wearing all that crap. I wanted to fit in. I didn't want to be the odd man out. I wanted to be inside, not on the outside. When I was directing the ER thing, the emergency room guys wore the green scrubs. I wore those for a few days. Then, I wore the blue scrubs, which were the surgeons', for a few days. When I wore the nurse's pink scrubs, though, that's when I became a hero on the set. The nurses didn't think I was going to throw in with them. I ended the episode, the last two days, wearing the nurses' scrubs. When I walked on the set all the nurses applauded me. They were like "Oh my God, he's so cool!".
62 On violence in Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003): When I was on The View (1997), Barbara Walters was asking me about the blood and stuff, and I said, "Well, you know, that's a staple of Japanese cinema." And then she came back, "But this is America." And I go, "I don't make movies for America. I make movies for planet Earth.".
63 I have an idea for a Godzilla movie that I've always wanted to do. The whole idea of Godzilla's role in Tokyo, where he's always battling these other monsters, saving humanity time and again - wouldn't Godzilla become God? It would be called Living Under the Rule of Godzilla. This is what society is like when a big fucking green lizard rules your world.
64 On becoming famous: Going into a video store and going through the videos, looking at every title they have, trying to find some old Spaghetti Western, that's gone.
65 On how to take the violence in Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003) (The final duel with Lucy Liu): It's supposed to be kind of amusing and poetic at the same time. And also just a teeny-tiny bit solemn. When you see her head, it's funny. And then her line, "That really was a Hattori Hanzo sword," that's funny. But then, the next shot is not funny, when she tips over and Meiko Kaji is singing about revenge on the soundtrack. So it's all together. Funny. Solemn. Beautiful. Gross. All at the same time.
66 On collecting movies: If you're a film fan, collecting video is sort of like marijuana. Laser discs, they're definitely cocaine. Film prints are heroin, all right? You're shooting smack when you start collecting film prints. So I kinda got into it in a big way, and I've got a pretty nice collection I'm real proud of.
67 On media criticisms of violence in his movies: What if a kid goes to school after seeing Kill Bill and starts slicing up other kids? You know, I'll take that chance! Violent films don't turn children into violent people. They may turn them into violent filmmakers but that's another matter altogether.
68 On media criticisms of violence in his movies: Sure, Kill Bill's a violent movie. But it's a Tarantino movie. You don't go to see Metallica and ask the fuckers to turn the music down.
69 [on the comparison between Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003)'s group fight and Neo vs. 100 Agent Smiths in The Matrix Reloaded (2003)] First off, I've always thought of the black suits as mine, so I don't think of them as Agent Smiths, I think of them as Reservoir Dogs with less cool sunglasses. The similarities between the fight sequences never occurred to me until I had a director's screening and Luc Besson turned up with Keanu Reeves as his guest. I watched Keanu watching and suddenly I felt it.
70 Movies are my religion and God is my patron. I'm lucky enough to be in the position where I don't make movies to pay for my pool. When I make a movie, I want it to be everything to me; like I would die for it.
71 On using surfing music, when hating the surfing culture: It's like surf music, I've always like loved that but, for me, I don't know what surf music has to do with surf boards. To me, it just sounds like rock and roll, even Morricone music. It sounds like rock and roll Spaghetti Western music, so that's how I kind of laid it in.
72 When people ask me if I went to film school, I tell them "No, I went to films.".
73 If I've made it a little easier for artists to work in violence, great! I've accomplished something.
74 [on "rival" director Guy Ritchie marrying Madonna] I guess I'll have to marry Elvis Presley to get even.
75 [at the MTV Movie Awards 1994 as he won Best Picture for Pulp Fiction (1994)] Pop quiz, hotshot: you go to the awards ceremonies all year long; you keep losing to Forrest Gump (1994)! It's really annoying the hell out of you - what do you do? You go to the MTV Awards!
