The 9th Film by Quentin Tarantino
#71

Bailey, you made two great points with your last two responses, so I'm going to just respond to them together, because I think you've hit at what I'm getting at. Yes, you could argue that the author or creator of a project ultimately has a responsibility to himself and we should always consider the underlying work  - but I also look at the memefication of Hans Landa and I'm seeing how easily that could be applied to Manson (who, let it be said, is already kind of a meme). I think you make a good argument about Death Proof - and also Leo in Django, who really does walk that line between charismatic and absolutely repulsive.



But I think my concern ultimately comes down to - this is strange to say - Tarantino's skill as a filmmaker. His filmmaking draws attention to itself in ways that are often brilliant - I'll never forget sitting down for Inglorious, unsure of what to really expect, and then being amazed at that first scene just going on and on and just enraptured at the balls that this was what his war movie was going to be - but I feel like, personally, any approach to the Manson murders needs to know when to be flashy - it was a flashy time - and when to be unobtrusive. In Jackie Brown, he understands that.



I don't really know if he remembers how to hit that balance between flash and unobtrusiveness anymore.



But I'm happy to be wrong. I want any movie to be good, and I really do like him as a filmmaker.

I'm not saying it's great or anything, but that was sort the point of the David Duchovny led period cop show Aquarius. While it only lasted two seasons, but its this exact time period, and built up to and around this very event.

Couldn't get into that one and I stuck with it for like four or five episodes.

I just so happen to be Facebook friends with Paul Schrader, and he had this nugget to share from Tarantino himself: "My script isn't about the Manson family, but it's about Hollywood in 1969 and they are in it."

Next time you get Schrader on the horn ask him what was up with DOG EAT DOG. Like what the hell, man. What was that?



In those words.

I remember thinking the opening scene was pretty cool and then the rest of the movie happened.

The guy he cast to play "Diesel." I mean maybe he really brought it during the audition. It did not translate on film.

I just think Barry humblebragging about who he's Facebook friends with is hilarious, regardless of the news.

I'll be honest, if I was fishing buddies with the writer of THE YAKUZA I'd be dropping that name all over these boards. It'd be "Paul and I" this and "Paul and I" that all the live long day.

A[quote name="Mangy" url="/community/t/159473/the-9th-film-by-quentin-tarantino/60#post_4321548"]Well, he DID kill Hitler. And Goebbels. And Goering.

I think there's more than meets the eye, but I thought the subtext of Django and Hateful Eight were both so jumbled and contradictory that I'm not sure they said what they were trying to say. (I speak as someone who likes both movies.)
[/quote]

But that's sort of the point: Unchained is the Lincoln letter that Samuel L. Jackson carries around, the lie that we've totally gotten over slavery and racism. Hateful8 proves we haven't--at all.

Bailey's right, Keep Calm and trust the Tarantino.

If Manson and company are indeed just background players in a story about Hollywood, I'll be relieved. Otherwise, I feel absolutely no obligation to "trust the Tarantino" when it comes to a real-world semi-recent tragedy.

Did it for you.



I just can't fathom this movie. Tarantino would have to completely transform into another side of himself if he wants to execute this right. The probability of that is so slim.

AI'm telling you guys....my worst case scenario that's in my head is so gross I dare not even post about but I'm gonna give a bit out there in case I turn out to be right, I want it documented. Actually...no, I'm just gonna leave it right where it's at. In the darkest corners of my psyche..

Barry walked down Hollywood Boulevard, got his picture taken in front of Grauman's with a homeless man dressed like Jack Sparrow and then he had lunch at a lovely deli.



He also likes to friend celebrities on Facebook.

I'm sure the Mike J edition is equally exciting.

It's pretty good. Napoleon Dynamite is set to play me in the movie adaptation.

This is the only good casting suggestion to ever come out of any of these threads.

 After H8, I thought a giallo would be a good idea for QT.  A movie with colorful characters and lots of violence is right up his alley. He is also an fan of slasher movies as well. My first thought when I heard that he was making a movie about Manson was, that is kinda in the same ballpark as a giallo. One of the appeals of QT is that his movies have a twisted sense of fun: seeing Hilter eat lead and Django blowing up Candyland for instance. There is nothing fun about Manson; so I hope that this movie is about LA in the late 60s with a Manson subplot.

I've got good news and I've got bad news. The bad news is that I have lost my way. The good news is that I'm way ahead of schedule.

Casting Morgot seems like it's not about a Manson subplot... but actually the plot. I can see her as one of Manson's manic girls.

I just don't get the premature hand-wringing when you have no idea what the movie is going to be like.  If you've lost faith in him as a filmmaker, that's another matter entirely.  But he's 8 for 8, in my opinion.

I can't understand how slavery and the Holocaust are okay subjects for Tarantino, but a serial killer in the sixties is just too raw.

Maybe it'll be a wacky comedy, starring Bob Odenkirk



Just felt the thread needed this clip sooner or later.

I think it's a good bet this is going to be an anthology film. PULP FICTION '69, if you will.

Please stop, Barry.

ATaking the title suggestions that Paul Schrader shared with you in confidence and passing them off as your own.

Way outta line.

Naw Molt, it was me all by my lonesome. It's not original, but it would be fitting, especially if this is meant to be an anthology film. Tarantino has been wanting to use ONCE UPON A TIME in one of his titles for a while now. With his self imposed retirement looming, he's running out of films to do so.

So you're saying that you came up with PULP FICTION '69? You, and not the man who got a truly nuanced performance out of Willem Dafoe in LIGHT SLEEPER? You came up with it? That's your claim?



Throw a big patty on that bun because that's a whopper.
