What did he say about Kill Bill?
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

 I don't know but I'm guessing it's the same thing that Iñarritu thinks about Tarantino: he doesn't understands violence, nor has he experienced it.
context, context, context.

If I were QT, my comeback to Innaritu would be the same statement, only instead of "violence" I would substitute "spirituality".

Anyway, I hope what Emir said was either valid, or at the very least, funny.

I think he meant that hypothetically...

Hehehe, er....


What I mean is that ElPanda posted that like a "what if", meaning would it bother Kusturica fans who liked Kill Bill.

Also, as SoNowThen I could do nothing about it. But once I ditched my glasses and put on my cape, as SuperSoNowThen, I could fly and up rotate the earth backwards, thus changing time back and giving myself a chance to alter the past.

Well, I have to say that both Tarantino and Iñárritu understand very well the subjects they deal with. They make great films and I hate it when directors diss other directors like that. Like, "let me badmouth Tarantino just for people to know I really don't give a turd about the hottest director in the world right now. I'm soooooo cool by doing that, aint I? Right? Yeeeeees........No?  :( ". It's the PTA-Fincher or Smith-PTA all over again. Just make your great movies and shut up, people  8)

Anyway, sorry for going off-topic

Kusturica DID win a prize at cannes: the prix de l'education nationale!!!!!!
I didn't even know such a prize existed. it's for "cinematographic and pedagogical interest as well as artistic qualities". This award makes the film a pedagogical reference of the year for cinema schools. A cd-rom will be made to help understanding it and analysing it for the pupils.
