1. f
2. yes and no  Some of the strong female characters are good representations of the female gender like the Bride for instance or Jackie Brown.  I don't necessarily think that all the strong female characters are good though Elle Driver for instance or O-Ren Isshi who were strong yes in a way but seemed to be devoid of any moral core.  I don't think you could define Elle as being good or a person a woman would want to pattern herself after. 
3. Yes. I think in general you could but not in Tarantino's films.  His female characters tend to be strong  like men  but I don't think that shows a feminist predilection in his work.  I don't think he really understands what it means to be a feminist.
4. No but what do you define as being a male characteristic..

Is DP among others shaping and creating cultures behaviour towards women?

Postby tanya2612 » Sun May 10, 2009 2:09 pm

Hey just wanted to raise the issue of how in the first half of the movie women seems to be placed in a subordinate position to men. This is a theme which seems to run through horror movies such as Captivity, hostel, etc. What would you say as a cultural object which would link these films together as a possible symbolism to relate this to, and in what way. Maybe cars! Not sure. Whadya think?

P.S. I am not a feminist, just a student trying to get a discussion going for research purposes.

Ahah. Wouldn't be that bad to be a feminist.  :P

Are you doing a paper on the general issue or focused on Tarantino's work ? Cause if it ain't 100% Tarantino, you won't get much replies here on a Tarantino board...

Hi there guys.

I'm currently doing a research assignment, which is based on the idea of making 3 research questions on a genre or author/director which will help to expand my understanding of my chosen topic and develop judgments. I have of course chosen Tarantino as he is awesome.

I need to choose 4-5 of his movies, and come up with my 3 questions.

I've thought it would make more sense to create my questions first and then choose my texts based on them. The questions need to be open ended, and it would make it much easier if they were quite relevant to his films.

Ideas so far:

1.To what extent does the context influence the director?

2.What are the common features in his films? - needs to be more open ended.

3. What do the key relationships shown in texts reveal about the director?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Hello everybody,

I seem to be the umpteenth person here posting about an essay or research, but I'm doing my dissertation on Tarantino fandom, and how Tarantino fans see themselves and what it means to be a fan. I've narrowed it down to fans of Pulp Fiction, but I really need all Tarantino fans' opinions. You can either do a two part survey (which takes no longer than two minutes) or volunteer to be interviewed (which would be awesome!) So yeah, here's the survey:

Part 1: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/WNCZTFG
Part 2: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/WPTLF9X

Thanks so much in advance!!
