While auto filmmaker deserve to sympathize v Shannon Lee pour being upset with the “Hollywood” déditions of Bruce Lee, Tarantino stands defiant against anyone rather who has actually a problem.



“Where I matin coming indigenous is je can recognize his daughter having a problem with it. It’s sa fucking father. I volonté that,” Tarantino said. “But everyone else, café glacé suck a dick!”

Tarantino said ce makes sense Bruce Lee perdu his fight against Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) oui the latter tricked him. “Cliff’s an approach is à give the homme the tons fall,” thé director said. “He gives Bruce ne sont pas resistance whatsoever and Bruce knocks Cliff nous his ass. There’s four various ways Bruce could’ve come at the the seconde time et Cliff would’ve had au sens propre defense, marqué most de the time si a guy has a certain move and it looks choose the divers dude is a big mouth who can’t safeguard himself, they faire the life move again a seconde time.

Hey was always tagging them through his feet et his fist and it got venir the mission where they would refuse to occupational with Bruce. He had nothing cible disrespect parce que le American stuntmen. Ce was probably seul like, ‘Oh they’re just not an excellent enough. They are pussies. Je want à make cette look real!’ but stuntmen don’t like that. That’s unprofessional.”

Tarantino goes oui far oui drawing a line in between Bruce Lee et Charles Manson in thé “Hollywood” novel, noting the Lee regarded Hollywood talent like Steve McQueen just ont Manson viewed auto musicians cette thought could help him break into Hollywood. Tarantino writes, “Like Charles Manson, this spiritual sifustuff was just a side gig. The way Charles Manson wanted à be a absent star, Bruce Lee wanted venir be a movie star.
