Hes full of nervous energy, an utter geek who riffs about movies -- his own and everyone elses -- at lightning speed. It was a blast, thats for darn sure, he beams about Inglourious Basterds, his epic revenge fantasy in which a troop of American soldiers plot to kill Hitler. Some critics say its his masterpiece, which elicits a grin and a Gee, shucks from the 46-year-old former video store clerk who still seems stunned by the fact he gets to make movies for a living. And what movies. Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown and Kill Bill will go down in cinema history as auda- cious works of art. Not so Grindhouse, the Planet Terror/Death Proof double feature he co-directed with Robert Rodriguez in 2007 to a resounding thud at the box office. Hes still furious about the decision to split it in two over here. England has a tradition of double features so it was a disastrous mistake to divide it, which we paid for right in the shorts. I got over the fail- ure, but it felt like my girlfriend had broken up with me. Asked which of his films he rates the highest, he babbles: Its not for the chicken to speak about its own soup, but then names Kill Bill Volume 2. I screened it the other day and could not believe how enjoyable it was, he says with nary a hint of false modesty. Then hes off on one about a host of other movies from Where Eagles Dare (The Terminator of its day) to the new Star Trek (That one really deliv- ered the goods). Surprisingly, hes planning to fold up his directors chair at 60. If the movie I make at 59 sucks I aint going out like that so Ill be forced to make one more. But I dont wanna make old-man movies. I dont want my crea- tive red line dipping. Ill write novels and essays and that will be a lovely way to spend my time.
