Quentin Tarantino speaks: Best of 2005, and his future

“My favourite movie this year was Shaun of the Dead … that was my favourite script this year, that was my favourite movie this year. After that I also loved The Passion of the Christ. I loved Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle. I loved The Incredibles. I loved Before Sunset, alright, there was a lot of really, really terrific movies this year. There were also I couple of movies that I thought were masterpieces that haven’t opened up yet. One’s a Korean film, Old Boy, which is magnificent. The first episode of the movie Three Extremes, the Fruit Chan segment, is magnificent. And I really loved this magnificent Russian fantasy that’s going to be the Lord of the Rings for Russia, which is called Nightwatch. So I’ve seen a lot of terrific films this year. I’m very, very proud of the films that have come out this year.”

That’s all from Quentin Tarantino, in an article at FilmFocus.

There’s a lot more where that came from, including an update about his World War 2 movie.

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.

    Speaking of Tarantino, I recently heard a report (which I haven’t verified) that he’s directing the season finale of CSI. Anyone know if this is true?
