Film | Tarantino on auteurism

"One of the most talented filmmakers of my generation is David Fincher. All right. But he's not in the same category as me because I'm a writer/director, and that makes it different. That makes it a different thing.

...and it's a lot easier to go and look at the scripts that are out there, and available, and you can maybe work with a writer, or do a little rewrite, or do that kind of thing. And you get more movies made. But, you know, cut to six years down the line, and where's that voice? It's gone away.

...'cause to me the glory of what I do is the fact that it starts with a blank piece of paper."

- Quentin Tarantino
