Dquentin Unchained

I love Quentin Tarantino. And I love him more when there is a video of him and a reporter arguing because you see just how b-b-b-bad he really is.

In an interview with British reporter, Krishnan Guru-Murthy, it got heated while discussing violence in film linked to violence in reality. I originally watched the interview to feel the awkward tension, but the actual interview is SO GOOD.

Quentin was discussing the two kinds of violence in his movie, Django Unchained:
1) Brutality to slaves
2) Cathartic violence: Slaves paying back the violence, blood for blood.
And I <3 blood for blood movies/anything. The reporter asks with a smug smirk if a revenge story is the only way to make a hero. Quentin replies, "In the case of laying waste to a genocidal, white, racist class in the institution of slavery, yes that would be the reason to do it."

His last two films have loosely dealt with two holocausts in history: The Holocaust and slavery in America. I am into the approach he has taken to creatively expand on events in history. A sort of revisionist history, except not ridiculous like Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. The meat is there, he is just bringing the potatoes. And his potatoes are so tasty.

Quentin's next revisionist history film? fingers crossed
