Why Tarantino Refuses to Talk About Violence

Sean of The Daily Rotation wrote, "Since Quentin Tarantino has now been making films for just over 20 years now, his penchant for controversy has waned over the years. I don’t know if that’s a product of people becoming more familiar with Tarantino as a filmmaker (and getting used to his films being very violent) or the fact that media as a whole has grown so much, and that violence being depicted in it has become more of the norm. Are we more desensitized toward violence now than we were 20 years ago? Probably. But Quentin Tarantino can’t be blamed for that, especially in a country that has waged two wars in the past 11 years." (Culture, Quentin Tarantino)

probably because he's has had the same BS discussion for many many years

Because he's a shit director, it's obviously not because of that but he still is.

Why bother? How many people have said something about it a million times, often repeating themselves constantly, and the media still questions them.....

The media and the government is like a bunch of little kids that don't listen. They just keep doing it till someone really big steps up and punches them in the face.

Glad he won an Oscar he deserves it. As for the violence in his movies who cares he does what he wants and thats whats awesome about him.

Yeah, the media is just milking these tragedies by asking him and others these questions again and again. And he has answered them many times before.

And the problem in USA are more complex than just pinning it on movies/games. Mental health and availability of guns should be 1st on their list.

There have been several shootings i the US these past days and if movies/games were the problem then we'd have an epidemic all over the world, but there really isn't...

He explained why in the interview...

He said he's talked about it many times and he doesn't want to any more.

If he did talk about it, he'd be saying the same thing he said years ago, and the conversation would go in circles. This always crops up when some dumbass shoots up a school. (p.s. it is so sad that shooting up school is now a "thing").

stupid title of article... it should read ... "Tarantino refuses to talk about violence... again."

He only refuses to answer the same question other interviewers have asked him time and time again.
