American film director, screenwriter, producer, cinematographer and actor Quentin Jerome Tarantino became an instant legend with films like My Best Friend’s Birthday (1987), Reservoir Dogs (1992), True Romance (1993), Pulp Fiction (1994), Four Rooms (1995), From Dusk Till Dawn (1996), Jackie Brown (1997) Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003), Kill Bill: Vol. 2 (2004), Death Proof (2007) and Inglourious Basterds (2009).
Tarantino’s films have earned him Academy, Golden Globe, BAFTA and Palme d’Or Awards and he has been nominated for Emmy and Grammy Awards. In 2007, Total Film named him the 12th greatest director of all-time.
The 46 year old director now plans to quit films, marry and raise a family. He says he will retire at 60 and devote his time to writing, reviewing films and publishing criticisms. He says his decision is prompted by baby-fever and an urge to marry and raise a family.
