Quentin Tarantino Quotes

Some of Quentin’s Quotes include;

  • When I make a film, I am hoping to reinvent the genre a little bit. I just do it my way. I make my own little Quentin versions of them… I consider myself a student of cinema. It’s almost like I am going for my professorship in cinema, and the day I die is the day I graduate. It is a lifelong study.
  • Something stopped me in school a little bit. Anything that I’m not interested in, I can’t even feign interest
  • A writer should have this little voice inside of you saying, Tell the truth. Reveal a few secrets here.
  • I like it when somebody tells me a story, and I actually really feel that that’s becoming like a lost art in American cinema.
  • If you just love movies enough, you can make a good one.
  • My movies are painfully personal, but I’m never trying to let you know how personal they are. It’s my job to make it be personal, and also to disguise that so only I or the people who know me know how personal it is. ‘Kill Bill’ is a very personal movie.
  • When people ask me if I went to film school I tell them, ‘no, I went to films.’
  • My plan is to have a theatre in some small town or something and I’ll be manager. Ill be the crazy old movie guy.
  • It’s a standard staple in Japanese cinema to cut somebody’s arm off and have red water hoses for veins, spraying blood everywhere.
  • Dogs got personality. Personality goes a long way.
  • I steal from every movie ever made.
  • I don’t believe you should stay onstage until people are begging you to get off. I like the idea of leaving them wanting a bit more.
