20 Films Quentin Tarantino Says Are Unwatchable (Including Some Hitchcock Classics)

Quentin Tarantino is not only a celebrated Hollywood director and screenwriter, but also a huge film enthusiast.

Over the course of his long career, which began in 1987, he wrote and directed countless important films that quickly became classics. With Pulp Fiction, Hyenas e Kill Bill he invented a new cinematic language, which inspired many artists who came later. Quentin Tarantino he was one of the most influential directors in Hollywood and over the years he won countless awards (including two Oscars for best original screenplay for Pulp Fiction and for Django Unchained). What pushed him to undertake this career was the enormous passion for cinema, which he has had since he was a child. His mother and partner have always accompanied him to watch great films in Los Angeles cinemas, even allowing him to watch works that were not suitable for his age. As he grew up he had the opportunity to broaden his knowledge of the seventh art by working for the historic Video Archives video library. Spectator before director, the man knows cinematographic works perfectly and for this reason when he draws up a list of unmissable films, it always arouses great interest in the public.

This time Quentin Tarantino didn’t want to recommend a series of films that he loved, but he drew up a list of 20 films to avoid like the plague.

It is a list that the good Tarantino has prepared that will cause a lot of discussion among fans. Among the films that he considers unwatchable include films that actually received a lot of criticism and turned out to be flops come Atomic Blonde o Operation UNCLE The list then includes a cinematographic work by Christopher Nolan, which literally split the critics and which apparently has not found an admirer in Quentin Tarantino.
