Directors who only make films they have written

It’s common knowledge that Quentin Tarantino writes his own scripts, even when he adapts a novel (Jackie Brown), and his writing is very specific and very detailed. This will make it hard for any director to bring his own style to it, though Oliver Stone (Natural Born Killers) and Robert Rodriguez (From Dusk Till Dawn) have accepted the challenge, it’s still a rarity, so it makes sense that he’d like to see his own stories come to life. As Tarantino said in interview with director’s chair: “I see the movie in my mind. Before I make a film, I watch a film.”

Interestingly, however, Tarantino also attributed his skills as a screenwriter to acting classes he took for six years before he began writing screenplays. “Where I really realized that I had a bit of talent, I went to acting classes,” he explained. “I have always done bizarre scenes. Gradually, I just started adding more and more to the scenes, and that was what I learned to write dialogue.” This is just one of the many reasons why his approach is impossible to emulate.

It’s debatable whether he’s a better screenwriter than a director, or vice versa, but his ability to create compact dialogue is undeniable. He is also fearless in his work; some argue that his films are overused with gratuitous violence and offensive language, but these are integral components of his films such as Kill Bill and buckets of fake blood, Pulp Fiction with its offensive language and, of course, Inglourious Basterds. . would be less fun without Brad Pitt’s gibberish fake Italian. It is clear that his process from start to finish is paying off.
