Does he suffer from some sort of disorder than makes his chin and nose and forehead so pointed (like acromegaly), or is he just really ugly and that's all there is to it?
Also, why do people in Hollywood like him so much (not his films, but the man himself) when he's so obnoxious and motormouthed?
Somebody needs to tell him he shouldn't cast himself in his movies..
If you dont like him go see Django Unchained to watch his character get blown up into a thousand pieces.
It won't, r2, because he really won't be blown to pieces; it will just be simulated on the screen.
I saw it he didn't look like a gunslinger but someone who lived in his mother's basement in 2013...
I don't see where Hollywood likes him so much.
I can't remember the title of the book... but I believe it was one of the female studio heads who helped get Pulp Fiction produced wrote an autobiography that just tore Quentin a new one.
She wrote how he was basically illiterate and stole most of his work from a "friend" of his that he kept promising to help get a career for (he didn't) and she basically called him out for being low life scum.
It was very easy to believe every word she had to say about him.
I've had my own encounters and he's gross and just full of himself.
r5, Hollywood likes him because he as a certain obsessive fan base who skew younger.
A "Tarantino film" means specific criteria with a built-in fanbase.
It makes it easier to budget, schedule, and promote.
r6, all of which will be irrelevant if he is a known quantity at the BO. How many Hollywood types really like anyone but themselves? I always think that place is devoid of real interactions that don't involve status or advantage.
I saw him on the directors roundtable, and I thought he was subdued until everyone keyed in on him.
As much as Vincent Gallo is a crazy asshole himself, I think he was right about Tarantino.
So is he on a lot of coke or is he just the most annoying person who ever lived?
r11, I've heard it's a combo. He's naturally hyper, but the coke puts it in overdrive.
I've also heard he's sensitive about any criticism of his films. He doesn't react too much in interviews, because he wants to look cool, but off camera he's touchy.

I think he was born looking like Punchinello -- and making people want to punch him.
One thing I've never understood is the critics' reaction to him. Every one of his movies does incredibly well (at least above 90%) with the critics on rotten tomatoes, enough so that you'd think he'd be classed with Martin Scorsese or at least Wes Anderson. But then when he's not got a new film out, critics tend to dismiss him as producing a kind of ready-made brand, as if they've seen it all before. But then another film comes out, and they go crazy over it all over again.
It's like they like him for two weeks after his films come out, but in the abstract they dismiss him as gratuitously violent and predictable.
Gay, right? I have never paid much attention to him.
Straight. Into Asian girls. Major foot fetish and doesn't keep it a secret.
Yea he's straight. We aren't missing anything with that one.
FWIW He has an incredibly wide ass/hips thing going on. Beyond womanly.
Huge huge huge huge cokehead. Other drugs, too.
I don't know why you old ladies around here get so upset over QT.
He's made some really excellent films.
I agree there's quality but his work makes me physically sick and after three films I've washed my hands of him. It's like putting up with a willfully gross but gifted adolescent.
Actually, he's not much uglier than Ethan Hawke or Sean Penn.
I never understood the hype about him. "Pulp Fiction" was great, but that was it.
r20 would be woefully mistaken.
The star-fucking slut who exposed sex with Quentin Tarantino said his penis is short and squat.
[quote] She made out with him, took sexy pictures in a photo booth, and watched him whip out his "short," "fat," "nub-like" penis. She then had foot fetish quasi-sex with him, she claims.
IIRC, it was something along the lines of his movies are all really one movie because he steals large parts of obscure foreign B movies, adds 59 "fuck"s, a ton of blood and a cool soundtrack.
oops, r27 is referencing r9 re: Gallo quote.
He definitely suffers from asshole-ism and narcissism.
Briggette Fonda callrd him the nicest man in hollywood
Look who her Dad, Aunt, and Grandfather are...
she's been surrounded by assholes her whole life.
She doesn't know any better.

Kill Bill? Inglourious Basterds? Those were fantastic. Whatever his personal faults, he's created some stunning work.
"Created" is a debatable word.
I prefer, "stole" and "cut and pasted".
I don't get all the love for Tarantino either.
All the violence is cartoonish and gets repetitive. It is as if he figures if he throws in enough dead bodies people won't notice that the stories are kind of thin and gimmicky.
Has anyone else noticed his movies are just one drawn out music video? Themes of blacks and jews having revenge? He's odd looking and I suspect he spent his teens years on the couch watching nothing but VH1 and MTV. I get an Aspie vibe off of him. I also suspect he was playing gory video games day in and day out. An outcast who lived in a fantasy land. He appeals to others who also grew up lonely and isolated. If someone is a fan of him, it tells me a lot about how they've spent their formative years. Tarantino and Adam Lanza belong in the same category but QT expresses his angst in film making.
Guess his fans don't wanna touch this.
Jesus, R35, speculate much?
My favorite film of his is Jackie Brown. I think it's his best film, too.
I can tolerate seeing one of his films every few years, with the exception of the self-adoring "Pulp Fiction".
Maybe I'll see "Django" in a few years.
R35, you can't see the Aspie factor in Quentin? He's not normal, whatever he suffers from. He seems like he'd be a loyal friend and I bet that's why Hollywood people love him. He's not a genius, though.
I bet Tarantino has a lot more friends than r35.
And there are not enough "lonely and isolated" people in the world to account for most of the multi-billion dollar success and popularity of Tarantino's movies.
Jealous hater much?
I saw him walking down Bleecker Street one day, alone, muttering to himself.
