Tarantino's movie idea #107: European soft-core sex film


#1

Telegraph Magazine:

[quote]I ask if he has any celluloid obsessions he has yet to share, having made his car chase - the set piece in Death Proof that he describes as ‘my Everest’. He makes a love for 1970s European soft-core sex films sound more like a penchant for Carry On films. ‘I came up with the idea of like a cool sex movie that would take place in Stockholm, with a couple of Americans visiting a couple of Swedish friends,’ he enthuses. ‘Kind of like the girls in Death Proof, just going out drinking, having a good time, hooking up.’ But genres like this usually had a political context, he adds, and remaking them 20 years on, you can’t help but veer into pastiche. There’s also the thorny question of promoting such a film. ‘If I actually do an erotic movie, I’m going to have to reveal what I find sexy, what turns me on. And when it comes to sex in movies, it’s got to be kind of kinky, because that’s what’s cinematic, that’s what’s fun. Everything else is just - shagging. But my problem wouldn’t be revealing myself. My problem would be doing a press tour talking about me revealing myself. And how creepy that would be, how creepy the questions would be.’[/quote]

A Swedish film club, who loves QTs idea, and brought cool Swedish sexploitation to America:

QT described Death Proof as “My Everest”? What the hell? That doesnt sounds right to me. How is that his Everest? He hasnt made Bastards yet!



I think the Swedish meatballs dont know what theyre talking about.



I think QTs softcore film idea is just that, an idea. I dont see him rushing to make this right after Death Proof.

the car chase was his everst he said, not DP as a whole.


#7

I hope he does the stockholm film so I can hang around the set :stuck_out_tongue: and probably get banned.


#8

If he does there has to be a part for Christina Lindberg aka One Eye! ;D somewhere in the movie

It’s not easy to find good Swedish sexploitation, especially in a language you can understand. There are a few Christina Lindberg movies, the director Joseph Sarno was huge, and I really dig Marie Forsa, but that’s it for me. Probably QT also think about Swedish girls in German sexploitation. It was an own subgenre in which sex goddess Brigitte Lahaie had many lead parts.
