the director has the perfect answer to silence his detractors

Last week, we revealed to you that before retiring, the famous American director Quentin Tarantino was going to embark on this unexpected project for the next year, marking his transition from the big to the small screen. And although Tarantino is one of the filmmakers the most recognized of his time, critiques concerning it are not necessarily unanimous. However, he recently made a point of spending a message for his critics and this, without language of wood.

“go see something else”

It was in the 1990s that Quentin Tarantino would become internationally popularin particular thanks to the film Reservoir Dogs (1992), but also and above all thanks to Pulp Fiction (1994). Subsequently, the director’s films will then be considered as classics of the genre, ranging from the saga of Kill Bill at Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood (2019), via Inglourious Basterds (2009) or even Django Unchained (2012).

And despite the fact that Tarantino is among the most recognized contemporary filmmakers, certain aspects of the director’s films are not necessarily to everyone’s taste. While he was a guest on the show”Who’s Talking to Chris Wallaceon HBO Max to promote his new book, titled Cinema SpeculationWallace questioned him about the various criticisms that could be leveled at him:

You say you are the conductor, and the audience represents the musicians. So when you hear audiences say, “There’s too much violence in the movies. They use the N-word too often,” what do you say?

What Tarantino will simply answer :

In that case, go see something else. If you have a problem with my movies, then these aren’t the movies you need to go see. Apparently I didn’t make them for you.

Indeed, the criticisms concerning the use of the N-word by Tarantino were particularly manifested during the release of the film Django Unchained, where the word can be found more than a hundred times. At the time, many people, including director Spike Leehad criticized this point, then felt by some as a form of lack of respect for the ancestors of the African-American community.

However, on this subject, the director has long been championed by one of his recurring collaborators, namely Samuel L. Jackson, who has starred in nearly every Tarantino feature film. During an interview with the magazine Esquire dating back to 2019, the actor said:

That’s bullshit. You can’t just tell a writer that they can’t speak, write the words, put the words in the mouths of people of their ethnicities, the way they use their words. You can’t do that, because then it becomes untruth, and it’s not honest. It’s just not honest.
