Quentin Tarantino, whose ninth movie “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” won big at Sunday’s Golden Globes, told a group of reporters afterward that he still intends to retire after directing his tenth feature film.

“I like the idea of a 10-film filmography, especially after I’ve given everything I have for the last thirty years and then dropping the mic, and saying that’s it,” he said backstage at the Beverly Hilton.

Tarantino, whose retro smash “Once Upon a Time” was named Best Comedy or Musical at the 77th Globes, did, however, clarify that he may direct in television or on Broadway, just no more feature film directing.

“There’s an umbilical cord link from the 10th film to “Reservoir Dogs. There is this artistic intention that’s carried from the beginning all the way to the end, and I think that’s cool.”

Plus, he said, he likes the idea of “being more of a writer.”

“Once Upon a Time…” took home a total of three awards at the Golden Globes, including Best Supporting Actor for Brad Pitt and Screenplay for Tarantino.
