Auteur director Quentin Tarantino has consistently made it clear that after he finishes his time in the film world he wants to become an author. However, with the novelization of his latest film Once Upon A Time In Hollywood having been released in the past year, there seems to be some considerable overlap between the two mediums for the director.
Therefore, it comes as no surprise when word has spread about the directors newest project, an book titled Cinema Speculation. Word has recently become official, with his publisher Harper Collins releasing the following statement on the non-fiction title.
“In addition to being among the most celebrated of contemporary filmmakers, Quentin Tarantino is possibly the most joyously infectious movie lover alive. For years he has touted in interviews his eventual turn to writing books about films. Now, with ‘Cinema Speculation,’ the time has come, and the results are everything his passionate fans — and all movie lovers — could have hoped for. Organized around key American films from the 1970s, all of which he first saw as a young moviegoer at the time, this book is as intellectually rigorous and insightful as it is rollicking and entertaining. At once film criticism, film theory, a feat of reporting, and wonderful personal history, it is all written in the singular voice recognizable immediately as QT’s and with the rare perspective about cinema possible only from one of the greatest practitioners of the artform ever.”
The book is set to be on shelves this autumn.
