Quentin Tarantino remains unapologetic for his bloody and violent manifestos. While attending Dunhill’s A Life in Pictures BAFTA event in London, the 46-year-old said that “violence is so good in cinema.”
‘If a guy gets shot in the stomach and he’s bleeding like a stuck pig then that’s what I want to see — not a man with a stomach ache and a little red dot on his belly,” says the Inglourious Basterds director.
He adds: “I feel like a conductor and the audience’s feelings are my instruments. I will be like, ‘Laugh, laugh, now be horrified’. When someone does that to me, I’ve had a good time at the movies.”
“In general cinema, that’s the biggest attraction. I’m a big fan of action and violence in cinema,” said Tarantino. “That’s why Thomas Edison created the motion picture camera — because violence is so good. It affects audiences in a big way. You know you’re watching a movie.”
Right, right, right, but will the famed director ever film in London?
“I’ve never made a movie in London, I’d love to do that,” he said. “If ever I had the right story that would be a dream to have an excuse to come out here and live here for a while.”
