One of his statements in the article even read that if anybody else said that they wanted the outcome of the Joker talk show scene to be any different than what it was, they were lying through their teeth. In addition to the same, the director was also quoted musing about the direction in which the film industry was heading, with the recent releases referencing the cult classics of the past, which, as per Tarantino, is making them all pop-culture artefacts. On the topic of the Todd Philips film in its entirety, the actor-director had previously called the film "a bit one-note".

Quentin Tarantino's movies:

Throughout the course of his nearly three-decade-long career, the director has given moviegoers films like Django Unchained, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, Reservoir Dogs, and the Kill Bill film series, to name a few. Quentin Tarantino's movies have, in the past, been accused of promoting and glorifying graphic violence, to which Tarantino has barely ever responded to. His most recent offering, the Leonardi DiCaprio and Brad Pitt-starrer Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, as per the director, was an ode to the television actors and stuntmen of the past, which he conveyed through a story set in an era when the infamous serial killer, Charles Manson, was on the rise.
