If Quentin Tarantino hadn’t become one of Hollywood’s most iconic directors, he admits he probably would have been a film critic. Having made nine of his planned 10 movies, the 59-year-old has turned to writing books. Following the novelization of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, the filmmaker has also written a book of essays called Cinema Speculation. And during his promotional tour, he confessed what he thinks are the perfect seven movies.
According to Tarantino’s new book, there are “very few perfect movies,” but he wrote the 1974 slasher Texas Chainsaw Massacre is one of them. Speaking previously with Jimmy Kimmel, the host asked him what the other perfect movies are.
The director said, “Look, when you say perfect movies, you’re talking about any individual person’s aesthetic, but even trying to account for all aesthetics…perfect movies cross all aesthetics to one degree or another. It may not be your cup of tea, but there’s nothing you can say to bring it down.” Then he went on to name them.
Speaking on CinemaBlend’s ReelBlend podcast last year, Tarantino said: “I think Jaws is the best movie ever made. Maybe not the best movie. But it’s the best movie ever made. And then there are other movies that can get into its rarefied air. But when it comes to a movie, there is nothing that makes it better than Jaws. There is no ‘better’ than Jaws. It’s the best movie ever made.”
