  • “I am a writer. That’s what I do. It’s a writer’s job not just to write about himself but to look at the rest of humanity and explore it — other people’s way of talking, the phrases they use. And my head is a sponge. I listen to what everyone says, I watch little idiosyncratic behavior; people tell me a joke, and I remember it. People tell me an interesting story in their life, and I remember it.” – Quentin Tarantino, The Talks

  • “My integrity will always be the same. I mean, I might fail. But I find it almost impossible to believe that I’ll ever do a movie for the wrong reasons because — it’s just too hard to make a movie! It takes too long! It’s a year of your life!

I never want my overhead to get so big that I gotta do stuff I don’t care about.” – Quentin Tarantino, Roger Ebert
  • “I don’t think the audience is this dumb person lower than me. I am the audience.” – Quentin Tarantino

So when they take it, that’s just me letting my subconscious rip.” – Quentin Tarantino, Village Voice
  • “Sure, Kill Bill is a violent movie. But it’s a Tarantino movie. You don’t go to see Metallica and ask the f***ers to turn the music down.” – Quentin Tarantino
  • “When you had to go and convince people and get the money to make a movie. There [are] some hurdles that aren’t bad to go through. There was a filtering out process. Not every movie needs to be made. Not every movie should be made.” – Quentin Tarantino

  • “It’s not only dialogue, it’s also mood, situation and mise en scene. But I have no problem relying on dialogue. It’s one of the reasons I can direct my material better than anyone else, because I have a confidence in my material that no one else would.” – Quentin Tarantino, Timeout London
  • “It’s a standard staple in Japanese cinema to cut somebody’s arm off and have red water hoses for veins, spraying blood everywhere.” – Quentin Tarantino

But when it comes to getting the best out of them in any given scene or performance, then I’m at their disposal.

  • “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.” – Quentin Tarantino
