Quentin Tarantino was recently interviewed by Vulture, and during the lengthy interview the director of Pulp Fiction, Django Unchained and Inglorious Basterds spoke about one of the best horror films in recent memory, It Follows.
You can read more about that interview, and our Mr Smith’s thoughts on what was said here.
Tarantino may have been a bit too harsh in what he said about It Follows, and while he was clearly giving the director (David Robert Mitchell) some guidance, there were times when Tarantino came across as too aggressive and too nit picky. Considering It Follows was only Mitchell’s second feature length film, you can’t argue that it was very impressive.
There may have been flaws, but these sorts of things can happen with any film, and it could be that the flaws (that Tarantino pointed out) may have been intentional.
Tarantino may get a chance to have his complaints answered as Mitchell has given the director a perfect response:
Hey QT, why don’t we get together over a beer and talk about these notes. I have a few of my own for you.
