Quentin Tarantino, 60, has said that The Movie Critic will be his last directing effort because he doesn't want to succumb to a gradual decline period, which tends to happen, he believes, when directors get into their 60s. Yes, Alfred Hitchcock went into a slow decline after The Birds (Marnie is abundant proof of that) and Stanley Kubrick had arguably begun to lose his edge (certainly compared to the filmmaker he was in the '60s, '70s and '80s) when he made Eyes Wide Shut. But otherwise there are several holes in QT's analysis.
