Quentin Tarantino’s Cinema Speculation is expected to be published in October and will explore and analyse the key American films of the 1970s.
Is there anything Quentin Tarantino can’t do? The auteur has always been hailed for his incomparable ability to write dialogue and has won Best Original Screenplay at the Academy Awards twice as well as a plethora of other awards.
So we shouldn’t really be surprised that Tarantino, a notorious film buff, is now writing a book. Published by HarperCollins, Tarantino’s book is titled Cinema Speculation and the HarperCollins website says this: “Organized around key American films from the 1970s, all of which he first saw as a young moviegoer at the time, this book is as intellectually rigorous and insightful as it is rollicking and entertaining.
“At once film criticism, film theory, a feat of reporting, and wonderful personal history, it is all written in the singular voice recognizable immediately as QT’s and with the rare perspective about cinema possible only from one of the greatest practitioners of the artform ever.”
This all sounds very on brand for Tarantino, whose films have always been heavily influenced by the American cinema of the 70s. The book is priced at $35 and dated for October 25, 2022. There’s no official word on a UK publication date nor does the book appear on the HarperCollins’ UK site. Yet.
