Will “The Movie Critic” be Quentin Tarantino’s final film?

Quentin Tarantino filming

Sometimes news comes out of left field, and with the Oscars barely behind us, here’s The Hollywood Repotter breaking the news that there’s a Tarantino script floating around mulled to be Quentin Tarantino’s final film. The title is “The Movie Critic” and the paper mulls that it could be a story about or inspired by the famed critic Pauline Kael who passed away in 2001: “set in late 1970s Los Angeles with a female lead at its center” says the article. Sources tell THR that the movies being prepped for a production start this fall but that there’s no distribution deal inked at this point. We think it would be a suitable coda to the maestro’s recent deep dive into the meta meta world of film and film making with Once Upon a Time …in Hollywood, the novelization of the film and the recent non-fiction Cinema Speculation (he is about to embark on a world tour reading from it as re-issues pop up to replace out of print editions), which dedicates more than just a few pages on the question of cinema’s relationship with its critics.
