This is old news but still incredible. The whole interview is interesting but he really starts douching at 4:25

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GrsJDy8VjZk

I really don't understand why he made such a big deal out of the question.

Eh, whatever. I like Pulp Fiction I don't really give a fuck if the director is a douchebag and I'm not gonna make that judgement based on one video of the guy.

I'd be annoyed too if people constantly asked me if my art was contributing to the downfall of society.

You should stop at Jackie Brown, it's all down hill after that. Dude has resigned himself to making over the top revenge porn.

In the making of Kill Bill he forced the actors to watch FLCL and he would also take pictures with dildos on them if they fell asleep.

That isn't what the guy was asking and Tarantino's reaction was not merited at all.

I'll say this again: How can a movie with Samuel L. Jackson as an illegal arms dealer only have four homicides and one gunfight?

Who cares? I saw this interview a couple days ago. Fucking funny. I like when people high up show confidence instead of being bland and trying to pander to everyone.

Because he didn't write it. He adapted the novel.

I actually agree but it doesn't stop Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction from being infinitely more... interesting than Jackie Brown.

I honestly can't think of many illicit things less exciting than smuggling money in a shopping mall.

As much as I love him, he did overreact a bit, but it's understandable: he keeps getting that question a lot. Always the same thing. It can get frustrating. He just wants to talk about the film.

I like to think he's not actually mad but likes to flip the fuck out on random people for fun because he can get away with it.

Why is this guy trying to talk to Quentin Tarantino like he's some profound intellectual? He makes gory movies because they're exciting to watch...and doesn't really claim to be anything else.
Quentin Tarantino just got pissed this guy was just pressing him the whole time. Obviously the guy's black and is insinuating like this movie is gonna cause some kind of race war. Like did the slave really need violent revenge? Uh...that's the plot of the movie....Seriously after that starts asking him "oh don't you think violent people like your movies too?" He obviously just didn't wanna start with that debate again.
I give him props, he wanted an interview not someone to ask him a bunch of stupid "We can talk about this for hours" questions that he's talked about a million times just so they can boost ratings.

The reporter was insisting too much and insinuating that Tarantino is partially responsible for violence like high school shootings and stuff (along with all other producers of violent TV/films/video games/whatever).

Tarantino has explained his viewpoint on this thought often already, but the reporter wouldn't let it go. It gives the impression that the interviewer was trying to propagate the typical soccer mom point of view that there's a link between violence on TV and violence in real life. A link that's never really been proven so far.

So can you imagine why Tarantino got a little annoyed? I think I would've been annoyed as well.

He goes overboard but for a good reason. He was invited to talk about his movie, not how violence in movies affect society at large. It's not his job know, and that's not why he came to be interviewed. He just wanted to talk about his movie, he told the interviewer that was why he was here, and still the interviewer kept pushing him on subject though it was clear Tarantino was not interested in discussing it.

He's probably, like many, sick of hearing the dead argument that media causes violence. The fact that this is even debated and brought up any more is absolutely ridiculous.

Right? Why do people insist on taking one day in the life of one man, perhaps only a few minutes of this one day, and completely basing their opinion on a person?

I just think it is so ridiculous that they purposely push his buttons and call his reaction "true colors".

Yeah, this is pretty much the reaction of everyone whenever anything happens ever.

OH! Did you hear? So and so is a douchbag, blah blah blah.

Blow it out your ass is what I like to say.

I've followed his work for most of my life. He's done some incredible films and he's done some horrible films, I would say the good outweighs the bad.

But the guy comes off as a total narcissist and is constantly strokes himself in interviews. Even before this meltdown he says how he's started a "conversation about slavery" because no one is talking about it, as if no one has EVER talked about it in a serious manner. That's pretty arrogant.

Of course Tarantino will always have zombie fan boys who make excuses for his behavior and his films..

That's fine, but his reaction was completely unjustified. "I'm not your slave and you're not my master!" Seriously? The interviewer wasn't "aggressively pushing" the question and was trying to be civil about the whole thing. Anyone who denies that is delusional.
