👴 ❲ A Few Thoughts on Quentin Tarantino’s Plan to Retire ❳ The New Yorker

Soderbergh risks insignificance, merely vanishing; Tarantino risks the illusion of significance, being a nuisance. Soderbergh escaped from Hollywood in order to evade its limitations; Tarantino’s planned escape seems meant to evade his own.

The comparison/contrast to Soderbergh is pretty apt. However, while they are both great directors, it’s Tarantino’s meticulous attention to detail in his writing that really sets him apart from other filmmakers.
