Quentin Tarantino to head Venice Film Festival Jury
HollywoodNews.com: Quentin Tarantino’s last film, “Inglourious Basterds,” received eight Oscar nominations and garnered actor Christoph Waltz an Oscar for best supporting actor. To be honest, the film was brilliant to say the least and a must see for all film buffs everywhere. Among his other great hits are the “Kill BIll” series, “Sin City,” and “Death Proof” among others. Now the Venice Film Festival, which takes place from September 1-11, has called him to head the festival’s jury.
In a statement released on the film festival’s website, it stated, “Tarantino has been one of the most startling directors in cinema today. As a filmmaker, he has become a studied and imitated “point of reference”, and he is perhaps the only American auteur to be adored worldwide like a rock star. His highly original style draws dynamically from past movies, comics and popular Asia cinema, but does so to revive a taste for narrative plots, skilfully blending genre cinema and “pulp fiction.”
We couldn’t agree more with this decision.
