why should tarantino only be one of it ?
cult or commercial ?
could it be possible that heÃ‚Â´s both ?
i think we all agree that all tarantino movies are or will be cult, anyway wasnÃ‚Â´t kill bill a film which everybody looked ?
if you would go out and ask some people, how much of them would know the film ? i would say about 3/4, or even more
I didn’t know many people my age who had heard of Quentin Tarantino before Kill Bill came out, I was astonished to find this out. But I want it to keep this way. I hate when things I like go mainstream. For example, I like Eminem. I think his songs are great and regard him as a lyrical genius and the best rapper alive. I hate when he releases songs like “My Name is”, “The Real Slim shady”, “Purple Pills (Hills)”, “Without Me” etc, these are solely made for the mainstream market, and I hate when people start talking about Eminem like they know everything about him and know what he’s talking about and stuff when they clearly have no real idea. They only listen to those pop-type songs and have no regard of his other ‘proper’ raps and hip hop music. So regarding QT, people go to watch Kill Bill, talk about his movie which they know nothing about and dont understand and sometimes proceed to criticise him wrongly. So, in a sense QT is a cult director, yet when a lot of people go see one film and it becomes really popular, people call him a commercial director when in fact he isn’t, but due to the film he has created, it has caused a tremendous amount of interest from people who wouldn’t normally go see his films or who haven’t heard of the guy.
I think him constantly stepping in the limelight is something he wants to do and has nothing to do with the type of film maker he is, it has everything to do with the type of person he is. Just because he appears on American Idol and other TV shows doesn’t men ahe is a commercial director because most of the time his appearances have nothing to do with his affiliation to film, he just likes these kinds of things and is into a lot of different things with film making on the top of his list.
