Tarantino’s Next Film Breaks Tradition For The First Time: According to Tarantino, his upcoming movie, The Movie Critic, will buck a long-standing pattern for the director. The renowned director is back for what is anticipated to be his ninth and final film as a director, and he intends to start shooting this fall. There aren’t many facts about the movie outside its name. Its setting is in the late 1970s of Los Angeles, but Tarantino disproved the idea that this film was based on Pauline Kael, a famous film critic who briefly worked in Hollywood.




Currently, Tarantino is teasing information about The Movie Critic as the international portion of his Cinema Speculation book tour begins, according to The Playlist. Tarantino stated that his tenth and ostensibly final film is not a revenge story, breaking a long-standing trend for the filmmaker for the first time since 1997’s Jackie Brown. It is, however, based on a genuine, if obscure, male critic.

Tarantino says:

High On Films in collaboration with Avanté

“There is much speculation about who it is based on. And yes, he is a real critic, but he is not known… and I am not going to tell you more… It will also not be what you might call a revenge story.”




Why ‘The Movie Critic’ Isn’t Going To Be A Revenge Story?

Every one of Quentin Tarantino’s subsequent films has been a revenge story in some fashion, even though Jackie Brown was only his third movie as a writer and director. The only Tarantino movie to be adapted from another material (Elmore Leonard’s novel Rum Punch) was released in 1997. It was less of a revenge plot and more of a tribute to blaxploitation movies from the 1970s. While his lesser-known 2007 film Death Proof portrays a disparate group of ladies seeking vengeance against a stuntman (played by Kurt Russell) who murders young women, his follow-up movie, Kill Bill, is a classic tale of retribution.




Inglorious Bastards and Django Unchained, Tarantino’s previous two movies, were historical retribution dramas focused on Jews and Nazis and a Black slave and his master, respectively. There were also elements of vengeance and retribution in The Hateful Eight. In his most recent picture, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Tarantino essentially exacts revenge on the Manson family members (who murdered Sharon Tate) in a novel way that rewrites history as fiction.
