Not sure this is on the right board, but whatever.
I’ve always like anti-heroes or at least horribly flawed characters. My favourite film and literature characters are drunks, addicts, compulsive gamblers, perverts and all-round miserable guys. There is just something about these characters that strikes a chord with me.
Tarantino creates characters that fit into classic film molds yet possess very human characteristics (the dialogue is one the main reasons for this). I think Beatrix is a little different though, because although she is bad, the people she has to kill are worse. It’s kind of choosing the lesser of two evils. With characters like Vince… I think people are just genuinely attracted to crime. It’s adventurous in cinema. I mean, if you asked me why I enjoy a pervert far more than a wholesome baseball player, I’d just say because I don’t really like things that are normal. But I don’t know if I can really give you a good answer as to why the normal person like anti-heroes. I just know that I like when my heroes are not heroes at all.
