Last night, Joe Biden sat down with representatives from the film industry to talk about the connection between movie violence and real-life shootings. We expect that he won’t be discussing the topic with Quentin Tarantino any time soon.
When asked yesterday by a British reporter why he doesn’t believe violent films inspire acts of violence, the Django director spent a solid two and a half minutes refusing to oblige. “I’m not your slave, and you’re not my master,” he told his persistent interrogator at one point. “You can’t make me dance to your tune. I’m not a monkey.” Interviews really don’t get any better than this.
