Tarantino To Be Honoured By London Critics

22 December 2009 [09:27] - TODAY.AZ
Director Quentin Tarantino will be feted by the London Film Critics' Circle when he is presented with the organisation's top honour next year.

The Pulp Fiction filmmaker has been named the recipient of the Dilys Powell award for excellence in cinema.

And Tarantino is flattered by the accolade.

He says, "This is such an honour. I have always relished discussing my work with film critics."

Tarantino will be presented with the prize at a ceremony in London on 18 February.

Meanwhile, critics have heaped praise on coming-of-age drama An Education - the movie has landed seven nominations at the Critics' Circle awards, included British Film of the Year, Best Actress for Carey Mulligan and Best Supporting Actor for Alfred Molina.

French film The Prophet follows with five nods, including Director of the Year for Jacques Audiard and Film of the Year, going up against The Hurt Locker, Avatar and Up in the Air, among others.
