Another press tour, another clip of Quentin Tarantino fighting with a reporter. This time, the famous director got into it with Channel 4 host, Krishnan Guru-Murthy, in the UK, where he's currently promoting Django Unchained's release.
It all starts when Guru-Murthy asks Tarantino about violence in films and its link to real-life violence - the director grows visibly agitated in response, and replies, "Don’t ask me a question like that – I’m not biting." When asked why, Tarantino continues: "Because I refuse your question. I’m not your slave and you’re not my master. You can’t make me dance to your tune. I’m not a monkey." OK. "The reason I don’t want to talk about it: cause I’ve said everything I have to say about it. If anyone cares what I have to say about it, they can Google me and they can look for 20 years what I have to say. But I haven’t changed my opinion one iota."
Finally, after Guru-Murthy points out that Tarantino hasn't said why he thinks there's no relationship between film violence and real-life violence, the director responds: "It’s none of your damn business what I think about that...and I’m shutting you down."
You can check out the video of the full interview above. Do you think Tarantino was out of line with Guru-Murthy?
