Quentin Tarantino on movie streaming: “It’s almost like they don’t even exist”
Quentin Tarantino has shared his thoughts on movie streaming saying that it’s almost as if they do not exist in the zeitgeist.In an interview with Deadline, the famed director discussed his “retirement” from filmography, and reflected on a statement he made in 2009 about him being out of the movie business at age 60.Here, he shared that he has always believed that films were made for cinematic release and that, because of streaming, the motion picture doesn’t exist anymore.“I like the idea of giving it my all for 30 years and then saying, ‘OK, that’s enough.’ And I don’t like working to diminishing returns. 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,” he said.He continued: “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.
