Independent.ie) that he still has more to do before he decides to call it a day - although the long-rumoured Kill Bill Vol. 3 may not be part of that.
"There was a time when I said I wanted to stop after 10 movies, but I went back on the idea. OK, it would sound really cool because it's a round number and it
would make sense as I would have made three movies per decade, but
it's not fixed in time. I still have some more things to do before being
done with movies. Up to now, everything's fine. To me, the last 20 years have gone well:
I'm happy with my career, I'm happy to be where I am now, I'm happy
with the way my work has been received, inside the cinema industry and
outside. But it might not last. At the minute, I only answer to my own ideas, even if I try my hardest
not to be conscious about myself and about what I do. In fact, the
person I trust least to talk about my work is myself."

Today, I'm
further down the road. There are no genres I absolutely want to do any
more, like ticking boxes: 'This, done'. I don't think about Kill Bill 3
that much, as... we already visited them. If there was something I would like to work on again, it would be Honshu's movies, maybe. Or a horror movie perhaps."
