According to Christopher Kelly, most of the time between Jackie Brown and Kill Bill was spent working on the screenplay for Inglorious Bastards. While that’s true, what Kelly doesn’t mention is that the whole schedule for Kill Bill and Inglorious Bastards got pushed back because of Uma Thurman’s pregnancy. Kelly is also ‘worried’ about just who wants to see a Tarantino movie these days:
There’s also this question: Who, exactly, is his audience supposed to be this time around? The college kids Tarantino connected with in the early 1990s likely still consider themselves fans. But at this point, burned out long ago on all the Tarantino wannabes of the late ’90s, they might prefer to give their box-office dollars to the more playful and droll Coen Brothers (whose Intolerable Cruelty also opens Oct. 10). As for today’s college kids — will they have even seen Reservoir Dogs, much less care about its director’s motor-mouthed, movie-obsessed aesthetic?
