Bit of a tit?http://www.channel4.com/qnews/quentin-tarantino-im-shutting-your-butt-down
He does have an exciteable, 12 year old kid sneakily playing Call Of Duty 'VIOLENCE IS AWESOME!!' mentality about him.
The difference between him and a lot of other film-makers is that the violence in his films isn't discriminate and political. It is fun, because it speaks to a suppressed human nature.
don't they get a bit dizzy?
Something that gets him put in prison, not sure what
I do hope not.
Shit questions, with a bellend. But compelling, too.
in case anyone would ever think otherwise. he is awesome
And hes answered before.
Are his films actually that violent compared in many others, either graffically, in body count or casual nature?
I haven't seen his latest though. Probably going to be as good as a Rob Zombie film..
He gave my ex gf a foot massage in Berlin, the wisdom toothless jitter bag.
albeit, that's not saying much.
It must get very tiresome to get asked about it in every interview you have ever done for 20 years though. It is such an outdated 90s thing as well for Tarantino to be labelled the "violence guy".
To have been asked about that subject constantly over the course of his career, yeah basically everyone can find what he's said on Google. A lot of stars would have their agent just set the topic as a 'no-go' area before the interview.
I like Krishnan, but this genre is not one which suits him as an interviewer.
Can't stand the guy.
is Krishnan just did half an interview and then it cut back to the studio where he was reading things he'd printed off the internet Schofield-style
I'm asking you interesting questions.
between the on-slave 'brutality' and the revenge movie genre violence. Stuff like Eli Roth caving people's heads in and those two guys machine gunning Hitler into a bloody mess of pulp in Inglorious Bastards, or the gimp scene, hardly even qualify as violence to me- they're so stylised that you may as well be watching a grown up, padded-out Itchy and Scratchy. Is that going to work for scenes of slaves being beaten in plantation fields? Maybe, but it doesn't sound like it would on paper.
Probably sounds well snobby, but I recently watched Kill List and one scene in that blew my unconscious thoughts on film violence wide open.
I do feel sorry for him though, he gets asked about violence pretty much non stop, it must get pretty tiring.
I saw an interview with Michael Madsden once where he said every interview QT gets asked about violence, but no one ever asks Spielberg or Scorscese why they have violence in their films. Especially when most of the violence in Tarantino films is pretty comic book
And seemed wrongfooted by KGM trying to get QT to voice his opinions about both revenge and violence in films.
I felt a bit sorry because he's obviously well aware of the implications of what he says, and he probably is trying to stay out of that debate for the films-sake. He is a bit of a mentalist though and didn't need to flip his lid.
That apparently hasn't been considered since... probably the last film to do with slavery. When asked to contribute to this dialogue he claims hes just selling his movie.
He also seems to think that the 'other great american genocide' or whatever he calls it, re native americans, is done and dusted.
The thing with tarantino is that he seems to have convinced himself recently that cinema can instigate some sort of retribution if its very very cleverly peppered with references, 'homages' or whatever.
And I do think he is racist.
And I actually can't wait to see Django Unchained, I'm so excited.
their treatment is covered in shame and seen as something from another time, whereas slavery is closer to home, widely covered in schools etc.
So question him about that, about slavery, about Django, his plans for the future etc., but not on the fucking effects of movie violence. To a man who clearly thinks he's important and has a lot to say, being asked to repeat the same shit over and over for 20 years is going to make his blood boil.
in regard to the Native American genocide being 'done and dusted', and he wanted to do a Western style film that dealt with slavery instead.
Could be wrong though.
There is no way he is racist. I always got the feeling that he loves African-American culture so much that he actually thinks he is a sort of honorary black man
and that's what makes him racist.
sometimes it helps to understand the meaning of words before you use them
Is Lars von Trier a misogynist?
but Krishnan is brilliant in that interview. Defuses it without being patronising. Great journo.
Tarantino thinks he's hard and he's hard. probably not even his real name.
but he's better suited to Newsround than interviews with grown ups.
I love Spaghetti westerns and blaxploitation films though
But FUCK ME WHY AREN'T MORE PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT THAT TERRIBLE LOOKING TSUNAMI FILM
i said the other day that the life of pi trailer was the worst i could remember seeing. but i must have blocked the trailer for /that/ from my mind out of sheer denial that something so . schmaltzy hollywood identakit non-story using a massive flood as an incidental story device? jay. eff. sea. proper open mouthed disbelief at it whilst it was playing.
very funny in places, good story.. maybe a little long but all in all a good watch
imagine still watching his films in 2013
