Quentin Tarantino loses his cool on journalist seeking a quote on movie violence

Jan. 11, 2013by:

"I'm not a monkey!"

That's just one of the gems from Quentin Tarantino to UK journalist Krishnan Guru-Murthy in an interview promoting his latest film, DJANGO UNCHAINED.  The movie is set to open next week in the UK and Tarantino has been on the press circuit, which seemed to be going off without a hitch until the director squared off with Guru-Murthy, who was insistent on getting a pull-quote from Tarantino about the link between movie violence and real life violence.

"It's none of your damn business what I think about that," Tarantino told Guru-Murthy.  The journalist continued to pursue the line of questioning, even after Tarantino flatly stated, "I'm shutting your butt down."  It's not the first time Tarantino has gotten curt with the press, letting them know exactly where he stands.  While he was intent on simply promoting his film, Guru-Murthy was intent on leading the filmmaker into sound bite territory with questions that allude to the recent tragedy in the U.S.

It's a typical thing, really, for journalists to link current events to whatever they can and it's evident that Guru-Murthy was looking to turn the interview into a goldmine of quotetastic Tarantino, taking him down a rabbit hole over gun violence, rather than discussing the movie they were there to discuss.  I can see why Guru-Murthy pursued this line of questioning, but I can also see why Tarantino doesn't want to get pulled into it.

He certainly doesn't owe any kind of explanation about gun (or any) violence and movies, because there is no scientific proof that links one to the other. DJANGO UNCHAINED has already proven to be a controversial film, with everyone from peers, critics, organizations, and even fans decrying it as "too this" or "too that," so I can see why Tarantino would be more on edge than usual.

Hit the 4 minute mark to watch the fireworks:

Quentin Tarantino's DJANGO UNCHAINED is now playing in theaters.  Also, I have not attempted to whip, shoot, or sic dogs on anyone as a result of watching it.  Nor have I attempted to buy a Little Lord Fauntleroy blue suit and wear it in public.  Yet.

 

Extra Tidbit: Do you think Tarantino was right to avoid these questions or do you think he is obligated to answer them? Let's hear it!

Nice job, Tarantino

Personally, I think he did rather well. He never said anything inappropriate, and the guy kept pressing, but he never really lost his shit or anything, so good on him.

Guru-Murthy pushed for way too long, kudos to QT for not simply ending the interview. QT hit the nail on the head, he was fishing for something to use related to a much bigger issue far from the context of them both there to sell a movie, and wasted 1/3 of the interview doing so.

It's not QT's responsibility to do anything...

but entertain his audience. If he doesn't wanna answer a question he's answered hundreds of times over, let it go. Until someone can indefinitely prove that movie violence relates directly and completely to real life violence, let it keep happening. Movie violence is pure fantasy and if you're trying to give real life psychos an excuse by blaming it on movies, then STFU.

I'm actually going to applaud both guys. Yes, the reporter was pushy, but he was doing his job, which was to attempt to get an answer to a hot button question. He was polite and moved on when he saw that it just wasn't going to happen. Although it got a bit heated, they were both very courteous. I like that they were both able to move on after. But this is one reason I love Tarantino. The guy isn't afraid to speak his mind. When he doesn't want to talk about something, he won't. It's nice that

I could give a flying fuck what QT thinks about the link between movie violence and real violence. Its obvious he doesn't think theres a correlation between the two or else he wouldn't make the movies he does. If he does think there is, then he's a sick fuck for doing what he does.

The media always point the finger at QT first when relating movie violence to real world violence. But the violence in his movies is so stylized that you can't relate it to the real world. What about the other directors that release films with more realistic violence? They just choose to attack Tarantino because he is a well known name which attracts more viewers/readers

Your the fuckin man. Who gives a fuck about violence. its violence in movies I love violence in movies. And when I see very tragic things in real life it upsets me. Violence in movies and violence in real life are two different things. he's right.

Before he even got to the question about violence, I thought his facial expressions/tone/body language seemed a bit off putting. There was a smugness, or arrogance. Maybe that's just his way.

what about other movies types...

why doesnt anyone correlate musicals or comedy with people actions and emotions. if watching/playing something violent makes you do violent things, then why dont people break out into song after musicals? Where are all the married 40 year old guys going back to college to setup a frat house after watching Old School? Its bc its a cop out people want to blame something no one wants to hear they did a bad job raising their kid, so it must have been the movie that played while the TV literally

Art can for sure make you feel emotions, but it cant make you do anything you already didn't want to do or could do.

If you don't think that watching violent movies desensitizes you to violence then your an idiot. I'm not saying they make you go out and commit the violence but they most definitely desensitize you to it. Same with porn, its exciting when you watch it but as you get used to it you start watching the more hardcore stuff to get your rocks off. Your comparison to musicals and comedies is irrelevant also because generally comedies and musicals don't make someone want to go out and hurt someone.

Why does it seem like some people are still just discovering him?

I met him first in about 1996 and he's a very nice guy but if you're an asshole he will ignore you. I saw him do it to some woman asking him out. I saw him do it when somebody tried to pitch a movie to him. He just waves them off. Here he was pinned to the situation and that "journalist" is a complete asshole. Those questions are vetted pre interview and that one was not supposed to be asked let alone repeated over and over.
I bet he never speaks to that fucking idiot again.

"Why do you think there's no link between enjoying movie violence and real violence?" OK, Dr. Dick.

You're a journalist, not a psychatrist.

Tarantino always comes on a bit strong so I wouldn't be surprised if some people saw this as him being a dick. But I'm glad he stood his ground on this one. I think it would have probably been better if the interviewer had just recognized that he wasn't going to get anything from the man and dropped it, but I guess I don't know much about interviewing people.

QT is right, he dosen't have to explain why there is so much violence in the movie. People how go see it know what they paid for. If that's not what they want to see, just go to another movie.

fine with it

I get it, keep questions to and about the movie. What if he would have asked him about the fiscal cliff or who he voted for or what he thinks about the tax rates? All questions about that will do is alienate him from his audience and potentially make him look like a jerk or uncaring and even hurt box office returns. He just didnt want to answer a question about a provocative subject that at best would would make him look insensitive in light of recent events, because he already said he likes

Tarantino has a valid point

He has over the years stated his feelings/opinions on violence in movies and its connection to real violence and any one who care to know can look it up. In the end the guy was just trying to "stir the pot" so to speak in order to get more viewers. And thats not a bad thing per se but its good that Tarantino called him on it.

There is no link to violence in films and violence in real life.

There is no link because human beings are just inherently violent in nature its just how we deal with it and how are up brining defines us. Frank Darabont said you put two people in a room long enough they will find a reason to kill each other and I think thats true. Do I think some movies are to violent sure I think that NBK is a terrible violent movie but the movie depicts violence, violent people and violence in society. Its just a terrible movie in my opinion that is directed poorly. It's

Its just a terrible movie in my opinion that is directed poorly. It's also ironic that a Mormon company called cleanflix which edits all the violence, bad language, and sex out of movies was lead by a pervert. Violence has always been in art if you look back to paintings that date back centuries those paintings are just as violent as modern movies. So I say to take violence, sex, and bad language out of movies wouldn't do anything there will always be crazy violent people in this world no matter what.

He refuses to repeat himself which i`m sure is something the press all want him to do . What the man does is put asses in seats and that is his job he`s just fortunate enough to be able to express himself through his work with limited studio interruption

Krishnan Guru-Murthy is a fairly well-known journalist in the UK and is generally pretty fair with his interviews. If Tarantino's trying to promote his movie I can appreciate why he wouldn't want to get drawn into that line of questioning. I'm sure if they set up an interview with a clear view to discussing the subject, Tarantino's input could be interesting. The whole "does cinema violence inspire real-life violence" argument seems like flogging a dead horse in many ways, though, so I can

Personally, I enjoyed the movie a lot (I love Terantino's work) , so Im not taking sides against that at all here-- but I can't agree with WHY you think that. Lots of really bad movies have made much more money than Django, but Im not going to say those were great movies because it made more money or got decent reviews... I know what you're trying to say though. I would just hate people to follow the crowd and say something is great just because everyone else "says" it's great, instead of

They were both within their rights and it ended on a respectful note.

QT getting a lot of shit in the UK for this.

But completely justified. Why an English journo feels the need to question him on an American problem when he is trying to promote a movie is just rude.
Still, hopefully this 'controversy' will get a few more butts in the cinemas. I can't wait to see this.

No Way

Q.T. was smart not to pander to this journalist who clearly wanted to take the focus away from the film and put it on violence in the media. He has no obligation to explain to anyone the way he feels about the relation between violence in story-telling and real life violence. There really is no correlation other than violence existing in the real world and the depiction of that violence, whether it be in a film, book, or any other form of entertainment. Django is a fantastic movie, Quentin

Whoever wrote this should be fired for writing false information. There are mounds of scientific evidence that link violence in the media to actual violence. Study after study has been done for decades. Tarantino uses violence as entertainment and sensationalizes it, portraying it as heroic, rather than only using it when necessary and depicting its consequences. The media shapes our culture and people's mindsets, and Tarantino desensitizes violence and makes it seem acceptable and cool. Murder

I feel sorry for QT watching that clip

QT is obviously a bit frazzled after a long day of press junkets with every interviewer asking the same goddamn questions that they've asked for 20 years. I may not like his more recent films but QT is cool as a cucumber and you have to respect his influence on movies - he will never be a "dick" in my eyes.

Look it's plain & simple, politics should not be mixed with entertainment. Tarantino was there to promote his film, talk about real life violence. It's just not the time & the place. These journalists seriously need to realize that. Much like the guy who brought up the N word with Samuel L. Jackson, even if that one was more tongue in cheek. SO you can't fault or blame QT for losing it & no it doesn't make him a dick, if you think that, you seriously need some growing up to do.

If would have just given a well spoken and thoughtful response he wouldn't have painted himself in such a pretentious light. He jabs at the reporter for trying to get more attention but QT admits himself, that the only reason he's doing the interview is to garner attention (for his film). It's the guy's job to ask you questions, just be humbled anyone even cares what your opinion on the subject is.

Didn't this same thing happen with Kill Bill? I'm starting to think these are publicity stunts.

Do you really think the film at this point needs publicity?

Serious question

Is QT a homosexual? He seems pretty effeminate and he loves American Idol, so just thought I'd ask.

It's not homophobic at all. It's not skin off my ass if he is. I'm just saying that he displays traits of a gay person, so I asked. I find it more homophobic that people would just thumbs down me for asking, like its a bad thing that he is.

I think Tarantino (and not the reporter) behaves a litle bit like a dick

The reporter just asks questions! He is not insulting, he is not making false or overly critical statements. He is just asking questions about interesting themes. Quentin Tarantinos movie are always about violence (QT would definetely affirm this), so it is fair and really interesting to ask him about these themes, because it is great to experience what a filmmaker thinks about certain things.
I am interested in the fact why QT wants to make violent movies (instead of comedies), I am

I am interested in the fact why QT wants to make violent movies (instead of comedies), I am interested in his position on violence in movies or why people enjoy it.

I think he could have made an interesting dialogue, but he just gets angry and wants to make a "commercial" for his movie. He just suddenly flips out in a very weird and impolite way!
