Quentin Tarantino has blamed the rise of streaming services as partly his reason to bid farewell to filmmaking, as the former has dramatically impacted the film industry.
During an interview with Deadline, the critically-acclaimed director said, "And I mean, now is a good time because I mean, what even is a motion picture anyway anymore? Is it just something that they show on Apple? That would be diminishing returns," adding his refusal to direct films for streaming service.
The Inglourious Basterds filmmaker believed streaming movies are not famous by giving an example of Ryan Reynolds work at Netflix.
"I mean, and 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. Have you?" he said.
The 60-year-old also added he doesn't believe streaming films "exist in the zeitgeist," adding, "It's almost like they don't even exist."
Meanwhile, Tarantino's upcoming last movie will be called The Movie Critic, which follows the story of a journalist who write for adult magazines in the 1970s.
