Does a white guy have any business making a movie about slavery?
December 28, 2012 at 7:04 PM
I was just listening to an interview about Quentin Tarantinos new film Django Unchained. The interviewer mentioned that she was black then asked him why he, a white guy, was the right person to tell this story.

Seemed like kind of a weird question...its not like Peter Jackson is a Hobbit.

    It wasn't an uncomfortable or confrontational interview at all.

    Quoting Meadowchik:

    Sounds like he did not allow himself to be baited, then. 

    Quoting UpSheRises:


    Quoting Meadowchik:

     What was his response?

    I don't remember it exactly but he talked about how his movies are action movies more than anything. He said thought when people went to see a movie about slavery or the holocaust they expect it to be horribly sad and that the action element made it different than other movies on the same subject.

    It was a much better answer than i can articulate.

    Every preview and interview I have seen about this movie leads me to believe it will be just as weird and disjointed as his other work.
