“If you have a problem with my films, then these are not the films you should see. Obviously I’m not making them for you,” said the director of Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill and Django
“See something else”: this is the message Quentin Tarantino wants to send to all those who are upset by the violence and expressions of racial slurs in his films.
Tarantino’s critics often cite the movie Django as a problem, as it features the racial slur (the word Negro) nearly 110 times.
Speaking to Chris Wallace on HBO, when the show’s host asked him how he responds to all those who say there’s too much violence and racial slurs in his movies, the famed director said: “(If they’re upset) they should see something other]. Then watch something else. If you have a problem with my movies, then these are not the movies you should see. Obviously I’m not making them for you.”

“It’s bullshit,” actor Samuel L. Jackson once told Esquire magazine of the reaction to Tarantino’s films. “You can’t just tell a writer that they can’t speak, write the words, put the words in people’s mouths from their ethnicities, the way they use their words. You cannot do that, because then it becomes untrue, it is not sincere. It’s just not honest,” he added.
But the star of “Django Unchained”, Jamie Foxx, had previously stated that he had no problem with Tarantino’s script: “I understood the text. The ‘N’ word was said 100 times, but I understood the lyrics – that’s how it was then.’
The American director, screenwriter and film actor in the last three decades has directed nine films, (not including the 2007 Death Proof, which was part of Grindhouse, along with the film Planet Terror directed by Robert Rodriguez).
Recently, he announced that he is retiring from cinema and that his next film will be his last because he “doesn’t want to continue working with reduced performance”.
Tarantino began his big screen directing career with 1992’s Reservoir Dogs and most recently helmed 2019’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. He has won two screenplay Oscars: for 1994’s Pulp Fiction and Django 2012’s Unchained, both of which he directed.
His other independent directorial credits include: Jackie Brown (1997), Kill Bill: Volume 1 (2003), Kill Bill: Volume 2 (2004), Inglourious Basterds (2009) and The Hateful Eight (2015).
