Quentin Tarantino spoke out against streaming services

According to the director, he is not going to work with "diminishing returns."

Quentin Tarantino wants to keep the tradition of showing movies in theaters. The 60-year-old director previously announced that he would retire after filming his tenth film, Film Critic. This decision, as it turned out, Quentin made largely because of the current popularity of streaming services.

"I like the idea of conquering the summit," he explained in an interview with Deadline. “I love the idea of giving your all for 30 years and then saying, 'That's enough.' But I don't like working with diminishing returns. And I think now is the right time. After all, what is a feature film now? Is it just something they show on Apple (Apple TV+)? This will reduce profits."

According to Tarantino, he watches a lot of films after they "finally start to air on television." But films should initially be released in theaters, he argues. Otherwise, they "simply do not exist" in the current understanding of cinema, the famous director added in conclusion.
