Quentin Tarantino Red Mists In Another Interview Over The Subject Of Movie Violence And Its Possible Relationship On Real Life Violence

Quentin Tarantino Loses It In Another ‘Django Unchained’ Interview: ‘I’m Shutting Your Butt Down!’

Quentin Tarantino is not a man to to be trifled with. Hot on the heels of a recent testy encounter with NPR’s Fresh Air host, Terry Gross, the director has chewed out yet another interviewer over the subject of whether movie violence affects real life violence.

And it wasn’t pretty.

On the day that Tarantino’s latest film, Django Unchained — which features scenes of violence in line with its slavery theme — was nominated for five Oscars including best picture and best supporting actor, British TV broadcaster Channel 4, released a recent interview with Tarantino that makes for alternately awkward and comical viewing.

Having said that,The Inquisitr acknowledges that the interview comes in the midst of an ongoing gun control debate in Washington, and after the mass shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., in which 27 people were murdered — 20 of them young children.

So, to the interview.

The setting was Channel 4’s self-titled news program, the host was heavyweight journalist Krishnan Guru-Murthy. The topic was Tarantino’s film Django which stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Jamie Foxx, Samuel L. Jackson, Christoph Waltz, and Kerry Washington.

The discussion began amicably enough.
