QT votes for The Passion


#1

Quentin Tarantino said, “I voted for Mel Gibson for best director for the Oscar nominations.” Really? Is he religious? “Not really, but I felt (The Passion of the Christ) captured the power of silent cinema at its finest. It’s a great piece of cinema.”

Uh… sure let’s go with that. It’s certainly a ground-breaker, but I’m not sure deserving of an Oscar.

QT is right about it being “silent film at it’s finest.” The film was originally going to be released without subtitles.

I can understand QT for voting for the Passion, but the nature of the film is a very controversial one and its very hard to take a objective stand point on this

I need to rent it. I still haven’t watched it. :’(

Just as well it had subtitles, I couldn’t hear anything due to the legions of crying people surrounding me. Great movie!

He probably only liked the Passion cus of the violence.

I’d like to know what silent films Quentin likes. In the book of interviews it is mentioned that there is a silent movie theatre that Quentin goes to regularly.
