Tarantino sheds light on his Movie Critic movie

The ‘Once Upon A Time in Hollywood’ director will be casting an actor in his mid-30s

Quentin Tarantino has shed details on what he says will be his last feature film. The movie, previously revealed to be fixing on a film critic (some suggested it was on famed writer Pauline Kael – it isn’t), will reportedly center on a male film reviewer working for a very specific type of magazine – a smut rag.

Filming in L.A. this fall, The Movie Critic is set in 1977 and is said to be inspired by an actual critic.

In a new interview with Baz Bamigboye for Deadline, the writer-director says the writer wrote for a very specific magazine at the time.

“He wrote about mainstream movies and he was the second-string critic. I think he was a very good critic. He was as cynical as hell.

His reviews were a cross between early Howard Stern and what Travis Bickle [Robert De Niro’s character in Taxi Driver] might be if he were a film critic. Think about Travis’s diary entries. But the porno rag critic was very, very funny. He was very rude, you know. He cursed. He used racial slurs. But his s— was really funny. He was as rude as hell.

He wrote like he was 55, but he was only in his early to mid-30s. He died in his late thirties. It wasn’t clear for a while, but now I’ve done some more research, and I think it was it was complications due to alcoholism.”

Tarantino, who said after he retires from feature filmmaking may explore TV, is said to be looking for an American actor in his lead ’30s to headline.

The Movie Critic will begin pre-production sometime next month.
