Legendary director Jean-Luc Godard has hit out at Quentin Tarantino - one of his biggest admirers - for using the title of one of his 1960s films without financially rewarding him. Maverick film-maker Tarantino took the name Band A Parte (Band Of Outsiders) from the New Wave icon’s 1964 movie and used it as the name for his production company. But Breathless filmmaker Godard, 74, is less than impressed by the Pulp Fiction director’s intended flattery. He says, "Tarantino named his production company after one of my films. He would have done better to give me some money."
personally, i think thats bullshit. godard should thank QT. after all, how does Qt profit from how he named his company? i’d even say that QT’s naming his company after that film helped the selling of that film on DVD
Now in France, the apparition of him at the tv are considered as funny things.
He seems to be high, always falling into strange trip ! But always seriously too !! :o
so to my mind it’s not really interesting to know what Godard can think now, because in fact, his brain is dead ! :-</E>
