Lost Tarantino quote

I very distinctly remember on one of his interviews, someone asked Tarantino that question he gets all the time “Why the violence? Why the criminals?” Except this time, he responded with something along the lines of “I UNDERSTAND the criminal mindset…if I wasn’t making movies, I’d probably be a gangster.” Does anyone know what I’m talking about or am I crazy?


I remember once someone asked him if he wasn’t making movies, what would he be doing. His answer was, “Probably robbing your house.”… Knew I loved the guy then and there. LOL

Whenever he talked about Ordell Robbie he would say that. If he wasn’t who he was, he’d be a hustler like Ordell.
