The famous 1974 thriller "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" is a brilliantly simple film in the history of cinema. The author of Pulp Fiction wrote about it in his new book Cinema Speculation. But as it turns out, Tarantino's sympathies are not limited to this picture. The other day during the Jimmy Kimmel Live! taping, Quentin named six more films that, in his opinion, are beyond praise.
"Generally speaking, few pictures can be called art. See, when we talk about examples of perfection, we're talking about a certain person's aesthetic, but even trying to take that factor into account ... perfect films touch all aesthetic systems in one way or another." Speaking about his choices, Tarantino once again reminded us that it's only about his preferences, and any viewer has his favorites.
Besides "The Texas Massacre," his list of the best included "Jaws" (1975), "The Exorcist" (1973), "Annie Hall" (1977), "Young Frankenstein" (1974) and "Back to the Future" (1985). Rounding out the list was Sam Penkip's western "The Wild Bunch" (1959). According to the director, it wasn't technically a perfect film, but it was "so unbeatable" that he couldn't help but celebrate it.
