  • Watch the movie closely, and you’ll see how personal it is. Here’s a film in which cinema brings down the Nazi regime, metaphorically and literally. What could possibly be better than that? In this story, cinema changes the world, and I fucking love that idea!
  • I've always thought my soundtracks do pretty good, because they're basically professional equivalents of a mix tape I'd make for you at home.
  • I write movies about mavericks, about people who break rules, and I don't like movies about people who are pulverised for being mavericks.
  • "Come on boy, get up."
    • The movie Django: Unchained.
  • I steal from every single movie ever made. If people don't like that, then tough tills, don't go and see it, all right? I steal from everything. Great artists steal, they don't do homages.
    • Empire magazine interview, 1994.
  • Sure, Kill Bill's a violent movie. But it's a Tarantino movie. You don't go to see Metallica and ask the fuckers to turn the music down.
    • Quentin Tarantino on media criticisms of violence in his movies.
  • I am a genre lover – everything from spaghetti western to samurai movie.
    • Talking Fiction (Rolling Stone, 2003)[1].
  • Sure, and that's the cool thing about DVD: you can pack stuff on the disc that would've been too much for the big screen because actually it would've only interested yourself and a bunch of fanboys, who wanna know everything.
    • Talking Fiction (Rolling Stone, 2003)[2].
  • To me, torture would be watching sports on television.
    • Playboy interview (November 1994 issue) [3].
  • But can I tell the genuine-article Italian from the poseur Italian? No. To me they all seem like poseurs.
