Easygoing Tarantino film debuts at Cannes

Easygoing Tarantino film debuts at Cannes

Their characters are reportedly based on Burt Reynolds and his stunt double but they interweave with real-life Hollywood types, from Damian Lewis as Steve McQueen to Margot Robbie as Sharon Tate.

According to reports, Tarantino "snapped" at her, replying "I reject your hypothesis". "[There's] the idea that now you can make a movie, and the movie is the movie, and the movie has all the limitations that the movie has that a novel doesn't have, that's the way it is", Tarantino said during our interview.

The awkward moment was slightly alleviated by Margot, who jumped in with her theory on the character development, saying she felt the writing "honoured Sharon and the likeness".


"I didn't see it as a rage against individuals but a rage against a loss of innocence", Pitt said of the film. I did feel like I got a lot of time to explore the character without dialogue, which is an interesting thing.

Margot's response to the journalist was slightly more tactful.

Amidst this, it touches on the notorious murders orchestrated by cult leader Charles Manson, which resulted in the death of Tate, who was pregnant and married to filmmaker Roman Polanski at the time.


The frosty performance has prompted commentary online, with some criticising the director for his treatment of the question given it came from a female reporter.

However, underneath the wash of rave reviews, Robbie's screen time in the film has come under criticism.

On a more local level, just this morning the Academy of Canadian Film and Television announced that it is now accepting applications for its 2019 women directors program, which has been running for three years, (applications will be accepted until June 21, 2019), and aims to give women creators experience and exposure in the film industry. For me if 40 years later if I ran into Rick Dalton I'd be really honoured: "So you worked with Sergio Corbucci?"


Of his father, the 21-year-old said his father made a bit of a pro-wrestling analogy on Chris Jericho's Talk Is Jericho podcast earlier this month to showcase what this role means in the scope of his career. This is my world. "But it's also a disarming and characteristically subversive love letter to its inspiration, in which Tarantino rebuilds the Dream Factory as it existed during the time of his childhood, while rewriting the traumatic episode often identified as the end of that era".
