“Quentin Tarantino isn’t a stranger to controversy. He’s been courting it for the lion’s share of his career: He has a penchant for violence that borders on fetishism, and his scripts boast an inexcusably stomach-churning amount of racial epithets. Even in the beginning of his career, with Reservoir Dogs he chapped the asses of cinephiles everywhere by lifting plot elements wholesale from Ringo Lam’s City on Fire. So when Tarantino showed up at an anti-police brutality protest in New York City on October 24th, he knew he was crossing contentious ground.” (Via Paste Magazine.)
