Director legend Quentin Tarantino is known for, among other things, announcing his favorite movie every year. Often, the films that most impressed the cult director were not the ones that were best for viewers. So it is this year. Quentin Tarantino is responsible for cult films like Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill and Django Unchained. His latest movie, Once Upon A Time in Hollywood, is also star-powered. In the summer Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio and Margot Robbie were to be seen in the cinema alongside many other stars. Quentin Tarantino certainly appreciates the works of other directors. So he regularly announces his favorite movie of the current year. Again, the result came quite surprisingly.
Although Tarantino has a penchant for western and martial arts films, his current favorite movie comes from the horror genre. Crawl by director Alexandre Aja was the most convincing for Quentin Tarantino this year. The director revealed in an interview with Deadline. Crawl was released in cinemas this August and is about a family stuck in a tornado in their home. In the water, which rises higher and higher, hungry alligators are moving around. Crawl was able to surpass his budget of 13.5 million with a grossing of 90 million US dollars, but a huge hit was not the film by director Alexandre Aja.
The fact that Quentin Tarantino has named the film as his favorite work in 2019, but should be a great honor for the makers of crawl and may even lead to more viewers watching the film. Crawl has been available on DVD and BluRay since October.
