How are women portrayed in Quentin Tarantino films?


#1

Im am studying this question, and trying to come to understanding of how women are portrayed in his films? Currently looking at feminism and stereotypes within his work, anyone have any ideas on how women are conveyed?

I think all the women in his films are portrayed as strong, smart & independent.

Watch Jackie Brown and you have your answer!

Indeed. Different variations though, from the surfer girl in JB to some of the women in DP.

I wouldn’t say that all the women in his movies are independent, strong and smart. However, not all women are. I think he portrays them realistically in that some women are annoying as shit (melanie, some of the girls from deathproof) and others are very strong and independent (Jackie Brown and the Bride being the best examples).



I think the shortcomings or characteristics of the women that we don’t like in his movies serve to empasise the strengths of his heroines.

I know.

The most important thing to notice here is that he doesn’t care about how he portrays them so much, he writes and uses them so that they serve the film/story. He doesn’t care about political correctness or how he is seen as a “woman portrayer”.
