Quentin Tarantino talks about a movie he would have liked to make and says he wants to direct Battle Royale, a 2000 Japanese action thriller.
Oscar-winning filmmaker Quinten Tarantino talks about how he wishes he had directed Battle Royale, a 2000 Japanese action thriller film. Tarantino has a reputation in the film industry for being a staunch cinephile, drawing inspiration from different countries, genres and styles for his films. His latest film Once upon a time in Hollywood received critical acclaim and ten Oscar nominations, including Best Picture.
Battle Royale follows a group of middle school students in Japan who are forced to fight to the death under the gaze of a dystopian totalitarian government. The film received critical acclaim upon its release and has been cited as a major influence on filmmaking in the years that followed, most notably by The hunger Games and the battle royale genre of video games popularized by Fourteen days. Tarantino has previously spoken about his admiration for the film and said it influenced it Kill Bill Vol.1 and Vol.2.
In an interview on Jimmy Kimmel LiveGuest host Dana Carvey asks Tarantino which film he wants to direct, and Tarantino responds with Battle Royale. He says how great it would have been to direct this film, and his admiration for it hasn’t faltered since he originally said how much he loved it. He also mentions how The hunger Games was a direct rip off Battle Royale. Read his quote below:
I’m a big fan of Japanese film Battle Royalewhich is what hunger games based on, well hunger games just tore it off. That would have been great to have directed Battle Royale.
Tarantino said so in 2009 Battle Royale was his favorite film to come out since he became a director in 1992. In the years since, Tarantino has remained in his praise for the film, which has definitely sparked renewed interest due to its impact on modern entertainment and its pure white-knuckle intensity. To be commended given Tarantino’s encyclopedic film knowledge Battle Royale That’s the highest compliment the director can give and shows how well done and special the film still is.
Tarantino remains the industry’s most consistent director, making films that are exciting, passionate and writer-driven, delivering nine films that are never compromised, muddled or boring. In an industry run by committees and corporations, it’s becoming increasingly rare to see a director with a vision of his own, and will soon burn less brightly if Tarantino carries out his plan to retire from directing. Finally, Battle Royale remains a modern masterpiece, and hopefully with Quinten Tarantino‘s support, will find a few more fans of discerning film enthusiasts to continue its legacy as a modern classic.
