Last night, American film director and Oscar-winner; Quentin Tarantino was honored at the Museum of Modern Art. The MoMA gives this distinction to one filmmaker per year and who better then “director DJ” Tarantino?
Get inspired after the break!
According to the Hollywood Reporter: Friends and collaborators, including Diane Kruger and Peter Bogdanovich, gave short speeches praising Tarantino’s energy, vision and exhaustive knowledge of cinema, among other things.
“A Quentin Tarantino picture is exactly that: it’s all him. It’s all his. Dynamically, viscerally, excitingly his,” Bogdanovich said. “An unmistakable signature. And he has had a remarkable influence over American and foreign movies since Pulp Fiction burst on the screen in the mid-90s. Indeed, I would say he is the single most influential director of his generation.”
When asked which of his own films he felt was most personal, Tarantino replied “Probably Kill Bill.” Great movie, but my personal favorite will always be Reservoir Dogs!
