Moviemaker Quentin Tarantino has blasted peers who never go back and watch their old films, insisting they're missing out on an enriching experience. Tarantino has just returned from the Cannes International Film Festival in France, where he screened his film Pulp Fiction to mark its 20th anniversary, and he cannot imagine turning his back on movies he has made.

He tells WENN, "Whenever I hear directors say they don't watch their movies or they can't watch their movies because they just see the flaws and it's too painful; I feel so sorry for those people. How can you get up in the morning? How can you do what you do if you think your stuff is so s**tty. If it was too painful to watch my movies I wouldn't make another one. I would just give up at some point.

"I feel bad for them. I feel like their lives aren't enriched as they could be. I watch my movies all the time. At home I have a lot of movie channels and they show the films uncut. I just hit the guide button and whenever I see one of my movies is playing I turn it on. Sometimes I watch a little bit and sometimes I watch the whole thing.

"I hadn't seen Kill Bill Volume I in a couple of years and I noticed it was going to be coming on, like, (network) Showtime 2 or something. I thought, 'I'll watch it through the bang bang you shot me down opening credits and that'll be it'. I'll be damned if I didn't watch that whole mother f**kin' thing! I watched right down to the closing credits and I felt very gratified."
