Then renowned film maker went on to talk about giving his all to his art.
“I know film history, and from here on in, directors do not get better. I still have another one to go. I don’t have a reason that I would want to say out loud that’s going to win any argument in a court of public opinion or Supreme Court or anything like that. At the same time, working for 30 years doing as many movies as I’ve done, not as many as other people, that’s a long career. That’s a really long career. And I’ve given it everything I have. Every single solitary thing I have.”
When Bill Maher took the flick “Reservoir Dogs” as an example to say that if Tarantino were to make it again in the present time, it would be much better than when it came out.

“That’s kind of a ‘capture time in a moment’ kind of thing,” Tarantino explained, before making it clear that, “I won’t do it, internet. But I considered it.” The director also went on to explain why he still plans to retire after his tenth movie.
