Director Quentin Tarantino puts so much effort into his work he needs a year off after each film to recover.
The cult filmmaker sympathises with his fans who are desperate to see him make more movies, but insists he needs to rest.
He says, "I give everything to my movies. So when I am done I want a year back in return, at least, to chill out.
"I am a writer-director. With the exception of Jackie Brown I write all my own stuff. I write it from scratch. That is hard f**king work.
"You have to wait for my movies, but they are worth the wait."
Tarantino has made six films since his 1992 debut with Reservoir Dogs.
