That’s right. Modern Hollywood is a place of massive egos, Quentin’s ego is so BIG, that it would take the buzzards 100 years to feed off from it.
Now that’s BIG.
Truth of the matter is, I remember an interview when QT got his wax figure made, I think it was Kimmel who asked him about Hitchcock, and he said something like “He was alright, I can take Hitchcock…yada-yada”, and beyond that he actually called Kubrick a “pussy”…
To me that shows a terrible lack of respect for filmmakers like Hitchcock who made over 100 films during the silent era, all the way to the fucking 70’s! Quentin has made only 5 films, and look at the size of his fucking ego! Now imagine if he had Hitchcock’s credentials: North By North West, Spellbound, Suspicion, Rebbecca, Notorious, Psycho, Vertigo…and the list goes on!
And now look how humble Hitchcock was, he never said he could take on William Wyler or made any grandiose comments about himself, instead he talked about his form and never bad-mouthed other filmmakers.
I like Quentin’s movies and that’s where it ends. Can he be a heartless bastard? Maybe, I don’t know because I never met the guy, but I sure would not dismiss it. When people get the things they actually worked hard and hoped for, they never look back to see where they came from.
Anyways, I’m a little too old to be talking about some one else’s life.
So hey, I met this Asian girl and she totally had herpes.
