If you've got 75-minutes to kill, here's something to listen to as I say farewell for the night, after holding down S&A HQ for the last 2 days, while Tambay takes a couple of days to rest. It's an epic 75-minute interview that Quentin Tarantino did with Howard Stern a couple of days ago.

If you've got 75-minutes to kill, here's something to listen to as I say farewell for the night, after holding down S&A HQ for the last 2 days, while Tambay takes a couple of days to rest. It's an epic 75-minute interview that Quentin Tarantino did with Howard Stern a couple of days ago. 

Of course he was there to talk about Django Unchained, but, given that it's Howard Stern, you know that they get into a heck of a lot more. But the focus is Django Unchained naturally - they talk about his preparation for the film, they get into Will Smith's casting (Howard is a bit relentless on that point, really trying to get Quentin to talk about why he (Howard) thinks Will Smith didn't do the movie, the use of the "N" word in this film (as well as past Tarantino films, and just how unapologetic he is about that, despite all the criticism he's faced over the years), the fact that it's not revisionist history like Inglorious Basterds, and that it's set in a very true-to-life setting, the challenges in making the film, the budget and the box office expectations relative to the budget (he says they hope that it makes like $300 million+, so expectations are high, but he also talks about what it might mean for him and his career, if the film comes way under expectations), the amount of nudity that's in the film, and much more - like losing the Oscar to The Hurt Locker (over his Inglorious Basterds, especially in the Best Screenplay category), and also film versus digital, his process, as well as the industry in general.

On the personal side, he discusses his strained his relationship with his father (a very interesting story there), his dropping out of middle school, his retirement plans and more.

And this being Howard Stern, it's all very raw, and honest conversation. And the good thing is that Tarantino doesn't really shy away from any of the questions Howard asks. 

I must say I found the entire interview very interesting, and entertaining, and listened to the entire 75 minutes.
