Quentin Tarantino Flips Out & Refuses To Answer Question In Interview About Whether Movie Violence Can Lead To Real Life Violence "I'm Not Your Slave & You're Not My Master" [Video]

 

Video After The Jump

 

Director Quentin Tarantino's latest film Django Unchained is one of the most talked about films in recent months. While people like Spike Lee have boycotted the slave-era flick it has also received a lot of positive reviews.

 

Tarantino recently sat down with Channel 4's Krishnan Guru-Murthy to discuss the film, but the conversation quickly shifted to a heated debate about whether film violence can lead to real life violence.

Tarantino didn't like the line of questioning and went off on Guru-Murthy.

"Don't ask me a question like that, I'm not biting. I refuse your question," Tarantino said. "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. I'm here to sell my movie. This is a commercial for my movie make no mistake. I don't want to talk about the implications of violence. The reason I don't want to talk about it is I've said everything I have to say about it. If anyone cares what I have to say about it they can Google me. And they can look up twent years of what I have to say about it. I haven't changed my opinion about one iota. I'm shutting your butt down!"

Krishnan Guru-Murthy

Undeterred, Guru-Murthy continued to press Tarantino about the topic.

"It's my job to try and explore some serious themes," explained Guru-Murthy. "Violence is such a big part of all of your movies. It's an enjoyable part of your movies for so many people and that's why I'm talking about it. It's a very sensitive time at the moment and the vice president is talking to people in the movie industry about violence. You haven't said why you think there's no relationship [between movie violence and real life violence."

At that point Tarantino cut Guru-Murthy off.

"It's none of your damn business what I think about that," Quentin said. "I'm saying no and I'm shutting you down. I don't have any responsibility to you to explain anything I don't want to."

I think it was a good question to ask!! What I don't understand is they blame all the violence that happens on hip hop especially in the urban communities!! But Bruce Willis can die hard nine times and kill 50 people in a hour an a half. I do think Hollywood needs to take more responsibility for the image the promote. We all hv social responsibility but u can't just target one specific genre or culture of people.

Django Unchained, though an exciting movie, was definitely not historically significant in any way. It scares me that Quentin Tarantino wants Black people to look up to Django's character as a hero. This movie does nothing to "deal with the holocaustic aspects of the slave trade" as he claims. Over 6,000,000 Africans lost their lives in the transatlantic slave trade, which systematically deconstructed the black family, and created the foundation for America's substantial economic growth during that and later time periods. This movie does nothing to address this at all. We are only given a very simplistic story line, filled with vengeance in the form of violence, which Tarantino disrespectfully calls "cathartic". Black people have utilized superior intelligence, endurance, and morals in order to rise above seemingly insurmountable injustice. I am all for defense and protection of one's self and family, however there is so much more to abolition, reconstruction, and desegregation than what this movie even attempts to convey. Racism is so pervasive in this country, that even those who would seek to appeal to the interest of black folks, do so in such a condescending manner. Quentin thinks we are stupid, and if you can't tell by this candid interview, you are. Hello...Malcolm X, Roots, Amistad, Something the Lord Made, Ali, Do The Right Thing....these are historic movies people.

Anybody who takes movie/video game violence and thinks that they can do that s*** in real life is f***** in the head point blank. Yes to certain age groups of kids it can put a false image in their heads but it's up to the parents to say "look this is a MOVIE/GAME you CANT do these things in real life and get away with it" that's where the buck stops. If the parents can't take the responsibility to teach their kdis the difference between this s*** and real life than that's on them, other than that there's no way movie/game violence leads people to violent acts. It's all in the person themselves, or its the govt paying them to do this s***. You think its a coincidence all these shooters kill themselves before geting caught? Why no one has ever been captured and explained why they did this or that? Why the aurora shooter has said absolutely NOTHING about why he did it? BECAUSE HE'S BEING PAID TO KEEP HIS MOUTH SHUT AND IF HE OPENS IT THEN BOOM HE'S OUT JUST LIKE OSWALD AND EVERY OTHER GOVT ASSASSIN.

Love Tarantino movies but dude is a hypocrite. Throughout this entire interview he contradicted himself..Saying he will not say why he likes to make violent films bc it s just getting reviews for Murphys show..Then he says continues to say he wont answer the question bc this is a "commercial" for his movie..which really means "I don't wanna hurt the ratings for the show that I created"..Same f****** concept dumb s***..Bottom line is the $$ once again...
