It baffles me that the media in this country tailor their interviews to suit their agendas, not report news .....most are not journalists any moe......they've all become political pundits........The part that they forget is this......the media can report what they want, but we don't have to tell them anything......the problem lies when the person that owns the mic starts professing their opinion, or suggesting that if the person being interviewed doesn't answer, they are hiding something, as in this case. This interviewer wouldn't let it go; that the movie goers are owed his opinion on violence......his opinion has no relevence, and it's a FRIGGIN MOVIE. Lord help us.

Floodums: I don't know where in my post you saw me being racist. I was never implying anything, Tarantino was. I was simply pointing out that white people like tarantino have a tendency to take on another race's struggle, and do something for them to advance their own ego, and finances. He said that there were no black western heroes. I guess he never saw "Posse" I am saying it's soft bigotry to think that one race doesn't have something and it is up to the white man (Tarantino) to give it to them. As for Tarantino, he loves to drop the N-bomb. Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, he couldn't say it enough. It's his right to, but at what point is it functional for the movie and what point are you saying it just to say it "cause it's cool"

Ha what a hypocrite. I started a debate about slavery but I refuse to participate in a debate that is going on right now that I am involved in. Way to be a responsible citizen dude. Anything for another trip eh. Coward.

Any time you lose your cool in public you also lose your ability to get across any point you may have been trying to make. Tarantino does not come across well in this video.

@Musuko42 are you seriously blaming the Beatles for a mentally ill person misinterpreting their lyrics?

Charles Manson was inspired to do what he did because of a Beatles album. Seriously, look it up.

So...when are we going to hear complaints that music by The Beatles causes murder? Because it actually HAS.

He was there to promote a movie, and the reporter went off topic.
I think we have different ideas of "unstuck".

He answered the question, "It's a movie. It's fantasy. It's not real life." I don't think there is a link between movies and violence. When I was in middle school, a very impressionable age, I used to love to watch slasher movies and get scared. I never seriously thought about killing anyone. In high school I loved the Rambo movies. I never thought about going on a killing spree. What's next? People blaming books? After reading Stephen King's Rage (or rather his pseudonym Richard Bachman) I didn't want to shoot up my school. The focus needs to be on the mentally ill. What causes them to snap? Look at all aspects but look at it from their perspective. What is it in our society that is causing these kids to lose compassion to the point where they are fine killing another human being?

He is such a tool. Take a Valium and calm the F down man. Seriously, he's totally flipping mental. A truly great director can make movies with different themes, genres, etc. He can only make violent movies, yet he doesn't want to talk about violence? What a douche.

I have a theory that if he believes all of his movies are deep and interesting, then most people will believe that too. I find them disgusting and mostly pointless.

You are not going to bait Tarantino. He doesn't owe an explanation of his views to anybody.

Regarding the first half of the interview, I don't know what he meant when he said we dealt with the Native American holocaust. I know I haven't seen many Native Americans lately.

dbss: He isn't saying people weren't talking about slavery. He is saying people were/are overlooking just how incredibly bad the slaves were treated. Also, are you saying black people have have no interest in a black western hero, thus they haven't made one? Why would you think or imply that Tarantino thinks black people were incapable of doing so? He said he wrote the movie because that hadn't been done. And I certainly don't see how you can even hint at him asking for thanks from anybody. There is absolutely no bigotry involved in anything he said. There is a lot of it coming from you though.

Quentin Tarantino is a smart guy, but he can be a bit of a twat. He has every right to deny an interviewer a question, but he could have done it more tactfully.

I've always had a not so great opinion of Tarantino as a person (he's a bit full of himself)...but I think this situation was handled a lot better than it could have been. He refused to answer the question and the reporter moved on.

But to call the reporter a twat/moron/etc isn't really fair...he was doing an interview and was just doing his job...he could of continued to press the issue but he didn't.

Also...what is really left to be said about slavery in American history? If you don't know what happened and how things went down back then I would like to know what rock you have been hiding under :/

@beardofzeus: That's unfortunate about the wait, and kudos for waiting to see it and pay in theatres instead of streaming it onto your TV like I did.

I find the first half of the interview very interesting. I wonder if Tarantino actually believes that he gave black people a western hero, like they couldn't do that for themselves. It's like almost paternal to blacks. If Tarantino didn't make this, then blacks won't have a hero, and nobody would be talking about slavery. It was up to this noble white man to stand up for the helpless blacks that can't do anything on their own. It's like blacks should thank him for everything that he has bestowed unto them. It's soft bigotry.

@patchgrabber - glad to hear it. We've had to wait almost a month longer than US and Canada to see this one, but it's out next weekend. He hasn't made a bad movie yet!

QT put this moron in his place. He was absolutely correct. His job is to promote his movie, not to talk about his opinion on movie violence.

It's a Tarantino movie... people EXPECT over-the-top violence. Like he said, we know.

Tarantino does not have a responsibility as a film maker to discuss the link between movie violence and real violence. He has only one responsibility and that is to make films. Everything beyond that is up to the viewers.

@beardofzeus: It's actually pretty good. All of Tarantino's movies follow similar plots: revenge, elaborate deception that goes horribly wrong, followed by resolution of the revenge. I also haven't heard the word n*gger so much since Blazing Saddles.
