tarantino is god, you need too hang around different stereotypes more often.
Tarantino’s dialogue is what helps the movie be so real. Normal movies characters never talk like people. They talk about the plot and whats going on. Thats stupid. It makes the characters just a puthetic tool to move the story which is already weak because now characters have to move it through dialogue.
The process shots in the cab ride and the SQUARE have nothing to do with realism. When we’re watching a movie. We’re in that world. So would Butch REALLY be in a cab with a process shot behind him? NO. THATS JUST HOW THE MOVIE WAS MADE. IT has nothing to do with REALISM. It has nothing to do with ANYTHING INSIDE the movie’s STORY.
The square thing I can’t explain, In my opinion it wa stupid cause for one it wasnt’ even a square it was a rectangle.
The Wolf situation I understand what you mean. But I don’t think his only job was to come and order them what to do. He was basically a connection to help deal with the dead body of Marvin. He probably was also authoirty so people didn’t start yelling and fighting…no one wants to yell at the Wolf. Get it?
Now back to the dialogue. Sorry, but people I know…we discuss and talk just like in Tarantino movies. We have humerous stories we share (Mr. Orange’s fake marijuanna story) we have stupid useless facts we tell eachother (Vincent and Jules disussing Amsterdam) and we discuss different types of music.
the whole situation at Lance’s hosue when Vincent brings Mia I feel is one of the most realistic scenes ever. Chaos, yelling, fighting. That scene is so brillant.
in Jackie Brown, sitting around getting stoned and watching TV. How is that NOT realistic?
Now somethings do seem farfetched…but its a movie. But that doesn’t mean movies can’t be somewhat realistic. Out of all gangster type movies I’ve seen I think this one is most realistic. I hang around nothing but future criminals. And its all so reminicent.
When Tarantino was writing scripts back in the 80s he got ideas for dialgue from talking with people. Read “Quentin tarantino ; the film geek files” there’s a few pages dedicated to that subject. The whole “I’d fuck Elvis” monologue was once told to Quentin by a friend.
His dialogue is so popular because its so real. People really talk like that…
You can argue this, but then I have to ask, “Are you out in the real world talking to all sorts of people?” I am.
