Because Quentin Tarantino makes Quentin Tarantino films, he’s been asked the same question after almost every movie he makes. Is there a connection between violence in movies and real violence? With the release of Django Unchained, British reporter Krishnan Guru-Murthy had to ask Tarantino this again for maybe the thousandth time in his life.
Tarantino wasn’t having it though. He said, “Don’t ask me a question like that. I’m not biting. I refuse your question.” Guru-Murthy pushed some more and Quentin called him a wannabe slave master trying to make his puppet (Quentin) dance. He explained, “Because I refuse your question. I’m not your slave and you’re not my master. You can’t make me dance to your tune. I’m not a monkey.” Hm, not a monkey eh? *Crosses out banana question*
Quentin went on, “I’m here to sell my movie. This is a commercial for the movie. Make no mistake. I don’t want to talk about what you want to talk about. I don’t want to talk about the implications of violence. The reason I don’t want to talk about it? Because I’ve said everything I have to say about it. If anyone cares what I have to say about it, they can Google me. They can look for 20 years what I have to say. I haven’t changed my opinion one iota.”
He also told Guru-Murthy, “I’m shutting your butt down!” Aw, that Quentin. He uses the n-word (nagger?) 110 times in Django Unchained but he still says “butt” instead of “ass.” He’s such a nice boy.
