I’d much rather he got Robert Rodriguez to film the movie-within-the-movie. It would be like Pulp Fiction, where RR directed the scenes with QT acting. Saying that, I don’t mind Roth doing that little segment, he ain’t that bad a director. As other have said, I’m more concerned about his acting talent, which I can’t really comment on much when it comes to IB as QT’s a marvel at getting the best out of someone.
But this is QT’s dream project, he’s been writing this thing for over a decade, and for him to allow such things is unexpected. But that just shows you that the man is all about collaboration, it’s good to have that. I guess he sees Eli as his brother, and we all need that. C’mon…QT and Roth? Why not.
