During a public appearance in London last month, Quentin Tarantino told an audience that with 'Inglourious Basterds,' he is now an auteur; he has established a body of work that can be analyzed as a whole and as a product of his unique vision. Recalling his experiences watching the films of Howard Hawks, he said: 'My aim is that some kid in 50 years time has the same experience with me and my films.' In this dueling blog, Moviefone's Jack Mathews and IndieWire's Anne Thompson debate whether QT's films actually form a body of work or remain a work in progress.
