Quentin Tarantino shuts down interviewer over questioning about violence [View all]

Quentin Tarantino's latest film "Django Unchained," nominated Thursday for three Oscars, bears the director's trademark: it is rife with violence. In an interview to promote the film, Krishnan Guru-Murthy of Britain's Channel 4 News attempts to ask Tarantino about what link there might be between violence in films and the proliferation of real-life violence -- and Tarantino wasn't having it.

"Why are you so sure that there's no link between enjoying movie violence and enjoying real violence?" Guru-Murthy asked Tarantino.

"Don't ask me a question like that -- I'm not biting," Tarantino responded. "I refuse your question."

"Why?"

"Because I refuse your question," Tarantino repeated. "I'm not your slave and you're not my master. You can't make me dance to your tune. I'm not a monkey."

What an over-rated SOS Tarrantino is...I don't think there's a connection; however, what a diva he is...acting as if the question was not approproate...given recent circumstances, it certainly.
