Did you know that Quentin Tarantino has only directed nine movies? Yep, that’s right – and he plans to stop entirely after the tenth one. A commitment he intends to keep since he reiterated it once again, post the release of his ninth movie, Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood. He also said that his tenth and final film will most likely be more “epilogue-y”, but refused to divulge any further details. Without the slightest hint of subject matter, plot or release date, who knows when (if at all) this will happen but, given that the Brad Pitt-DiCaprio starrer just hit Indian theatres, chances are you’re in the mood for more Tarantino. 

So, press rewind and re-watch 5 of his best movies to quell your hankering for QT’s brand of movie-making, complete with ensemble casts and unpredictable action: 

Pulp Fiction

Where: Prime Video 

Oh, man. Arguably Tarantino’s finest hour, the 1994 film is an icon in its own right. The story of how the lives of two mobsters, two petty criminals, a gangster’s wife and a boxer get terribly intertwined will leave you breathless…even if you’ve watched it before. Marked by graphic violence, punchy dialogues, non-linear storytelling and memorable performances, Pulp Fiction should be on every cinephile’s list of movies to watch before you die. 

Django Unchained

Where: Netflix

The synopsis of Django Unchained simply reads, “With the help of a German bounty hunter, a freed slave sets out to rescue his wife from a brutal Mississippi plantation owner.”  However, this ode to Spaghetti Westerns (a genre created by Spanish director Sergio Leone, owing its nomenclature to the fact that most of these Western movies were made cheaply in Europe by Italian filmmakers) is marked by incredible performances and a more reckless, free-wheeling Tarantino at its helm, making it one of his best movies. 

Inglourious Basterds

Where: Prime Video

Christoph Waltz is probably the best thing about this movie that tells the story of two plots to assassinate Nazi leadership that culminates in a visually-stunning, and ironic, climax. If you haven’t seen Inglourious Basterds yet, we highly recommend adding it your watch list stat. 

Kill Bill Vol 1 and Kill Bill Vol 2

Where: Prime Video

An ode to grindhouse cinema, including martial arts films and samurai cinema, Kill Bill stars Uma Thurman as the Bride, a pregnant assassin who wakes up from a coma to discover she has been betrayed by her team and their boss, Bill. She swears revenge and sets out to kill Bill and the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad.
