DER SPIEGEL: A judgement among colleagues --- was Riefenstahl, actually,
a good fim director?

Quentin Tarantino: She was the best director who ever lived on earth.
To recognize this, you only have to watch her movies about the Olympic Games.

cf. Der Spigel 32/2009, p. 121:

"Spiegel: Ein Urteil unter Kollegen: War Riefenstahl eigentlich eine gute
Regisseurin?

Tarantino: Sie war die beste Regisseurin, die jemals lebte. Um das zu erkennen,
muss man nur ihre Olympia-Filme ansehen.
