The Best Film He’s Ever Created
The renowned filmmaker was in charge of some of Hollywood’s most recognizable and famous movies.
There are many more films like Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill, and Django Unchained.
They have all written hilarious one-liners, received accolades for beautiful photography, and received numerous nominations for awards.
However, there must undoubtedly be a best of the greatest.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Tarantino’s most recent film, is unquestionably that winner.
The director was questioned by Variety about his filmography and which roles stood out to him the most.
“People used to ask me questions like that for years,” he remarked.
I honestly believe Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is my best film, and I would remark something along the lines of, “Oh, they’re all my children.”
In 1969, when the movie is set, former TV star Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) go to Los Angeles in an effort to break into the entertainment industry.
However, they wind up relocating next door to Sharon Tate (played by Margot Robbie), the tragically murdered Manson Family murder victim and wife of filmmaker Roman Polanski.
The film shattered the director’s own record, grossing an estimated $40.4 million (£32.7 million) between Friday and Sunday during its US premiere, beyond the $30 million (£24.3 million) Sony had forecasted.
The film outperformed Tarantino’s previous record-breaking opening for Inglorious Basterds, which came in at $38 million in 2009.
When Once Upon a Time in Hollywood received nominations for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Original Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Costume Design, Best Sound Editing, and Best Sound Mixing, it was honored at the 92nd Academy Awards.
Additionally, the film received 12 nominations for the 25th Critics’ Choice Awards and five nominations for the 77th Golden Globe Awards.
It was ranked among the best 10 movies of the year by both the American Film Institute and the National Board of Review.
Therefore, it is undeniably good.
In his reflections on the state of the film industry, Tarantino was less than complimentary.
NME quotes him as saying on his The Video Archives Podcast: “Even though the ’80s were the time when I probably saw more movies in my life than ever — at least as far as going to the movies was concerned — I do feel that ’80s film is, together with the ’50s, the worst age in Hollywood history.”
“Matched only by now, matched only by the present era,” he continued.
Well, he’s young, and he’s got a lot more films to make.
