“Quentin Tarantino’s Cannes Interviews: Shit-Talking Streaming, Praising Sony, and Irritation with British Actors”

Quentin Tarantino has been making headlines recently as he attends Cannes Film Festival. The director, who is currently working on what he claims will be his last movie, The Movie Critic, has been giving interviews and sharing his thoughts on the film industry.

In a recent interview with Deadline, Tarantino criticized the trend of streaming services producing films and how they lack longevity in the zeitgeist. “Those movies don’t exist in the zeitgeist. It’s almost like they don’t even exist,” Tarantino said.

He further elaborated that Sony, the only major studio not embracing streaming wars, is where he hopes to release his final film, “It’s not about feeding their streaming network. They are committed to the theatrical experience. They judge success by asses on seats. And they judge success by the movies entering the zeitgeist, not just making a big expensive movie and then putting it on your streaming platform. No one even knows it’s there.”

Tarantino also threw shade at Ryan Reynolds, who has reportedly made $50 million per movie for Netflix, “I’m not picking on anybody, but apparently for Netflix, Ryan Reynolds has made $50 million on this movie and $50 million on that movie and $50 million on the next movie for them. I don’t know what any of those movies are. I’ve never seen them.”

He also had an issue with British actors pretending to be American, “I think when people look back on this era of cinema and it’s just all these British actors pretending to be Americans and all these Australian actors pretending to be Americans, it’s like phantoms. Nobody is acting in their own voice.”

Despite his criticism of streaming services and actors, Tarantino is still very passionate about making movies. And while he claims to be done with feature films, he hasn’t ruled out the possibility of working on a TV show in the future, “I might make TV, I just think I’ve given all I have to give to movies.”

Tarantino is known for his explosive and violent films, and in his talk at Cannes, he shared his views on on-screen violence and how it’s often misunderstood, “Violence is one of the most cathartic things as a viewer, cinema has given me some of the most violent moments of my life and they’ve helped me identify with anger and violence, and get it out of my system”.

However, Tarantino’s love for violence doesn’t mean he will be including any graphic scenes in his final film, “Maybe I won’t make a movie about killers this time. Maybe I’ll make a movie about a movie critic.”

Regardless of what his next project may be, Quentin Tarantino remains an influential and controversial figure in the film industry. His recent interviews and comments have once again stirred up conversations about the state of cinema, the role of streaming platforms, and the future of the theatrical experience.
