That used to be the thing about America: The fact that what Hollywood used to do, and what we did better than anybody else in the world, was we told a really good story. Europe was where you had character-based films, or mood-based films, but in America, we told a story. We're the worst at it now as far as I'm concerned, at telling a story. We don't tell a story. We tell a situation. Most of the movies that you see nowadays you pretty much know everything you're going to see in the movie by the first 10 or 20 minutes. Now, that's not a story. A story is something that constantly unfolds. And I'm not talking about like this quick left turn or a quick right turn or a big surprise. I'm talking about it unfolds.

-- Quentin Tarantino
