Tarantino clashes with Krishnan Guru-Murthy over Django Unchained | Film | guardian.co.uk
Quentin Tarantino clashed with Channel 4 News anchor Krishnan Guru-Murthy during a fractious interview ahead of the London premiere of his new film, Django Unchained. The Oscar-winning film-maker repeatedly refused to offer an opinion on the link between screen violence and true-life violence and at one point told Guru-Murthy: "I'm shutting your butt down."
Interviewed by Channel 4 News on Thursday night, Tarantino admitted that he relished making violent films but insisted: "It's a movie, it's a fantasy. It's not real life." When asked how he could be sure that there was no link between enjoying screen violence and enjoying real violence, however, the director refused to respond. "I'm not answering your question," he said. "I'm not your slave and you're not my master … It's none of your damn business what I think about that."

Really hope that bit makes it onto the Blu.Quote:
But there is nothing redeemable about Billy Crash. There’s an extended scene in the barn, where that awful horrific act is about to be performed and Billy was able to articulate his point of view – it took him ten years to get to that position of power and make that kind of money and Django is about to **** it up. Quentin was smart enough to look at the story from a lot of different perspective, and Billy Crash is looking at things from a working man’s perspective. It’s not just about race or him being racist but also about protecting his own interest by maintaining the status quo. In some ways what’s so despicable is him acting this way. There’s no one he can have power over unless it’s a race of people kept chained up. The great sins of America.
Let it be known that Quentin Tarantino is the reason America is talking about slavery. What a douche.
But did Django remember to look for the watch after he killed him?
