Quentin Tarantino is one of Hollywood’s most popular filmmakers. He is known for his non-linear storylines, dark humor, an aesthetic of violence, in his films. But few people know his temperament. Scroll down to find out more.
No one likes to be followed or have photos constantly taken by paparazzi and celebrities often have to face it. In 2008, when the filmmaker, who was attending the Sundance Film Festival, was spotted coming out of the cafe.
Quentin Tarantino was surprised to see that these paparazzi were waiting for him outside. The cameraman started filming it and the filmmaker seemed irritated. He then confronted the cameraman saying, “What’s going on here?” but the latter did not answer him. Tarantino, then angry, decided to slap him and threaten to beat him.
However, the cameraman didn’t move and continued to taunt him until the famous director came to his senses and simply walked away. Watch the video below:
Meanwhile, Quentin Tarantino recently appeared on Empire Podcast where he discussed a particular scene in the 2019 movie Joker. Joaquin Phoenix, who plays Arthur in the film, films Murray on live television. Speaking about the scene, the maverick filmmaker said the scene has the power to change viewers’ thinking and takes everyone to Arthur’s side.
He said: “Subversion on a massive level, what’s deep is this: it’s not just suspenseful, it’s not just fascinating and exciting, the director is subverting audiences because the Joker is a f ** king nut. Robert De Niro’s talk show character is not a movie villain. He looks like a hole **, but he’s no more of a hole ** than David Letterman. He’s just a ** hole comedian, talk show guy. “
Quentin Tarantino added, “He’s not a movie villain. He doesn’t deserve to die. Yet, while the audience is watching the Joker, they want him to kill Robert De Niro; they want him to take that gun, stick it in his eyes and blow his head off. What if the Joker didn’t kill him? You would be pissed off. This is subversion on a huge level! They got the audience to think like a crazy f ** king and want (Arthur to kill Murray). And they will lie about it! They will say “no, I didn’t want to (I wanted that to happen)!” And they’re fucking liars. They did it.
