I know the responsibilities of a film producer. I’m not underestimating the role of a producer. I think you’re overestimating the role of Lawrence Bender. QT did more for Bender’s career than Bender did for QT. Bender was just a QT parasite. His success depended on QT’s talent. Any producer can do his job.
Seriously, has Bender produced anything worth mentioning besides QT’s films. Good Will Hunting was pretty good but that was despite Bender who wanted a different cast, director, and script changes.
