Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood unsurprisingly sparked controversy on a number of topics. That consists of how the auteur selected to construct up Cliff Booth’s badassery (as performed by Brad Pitt) by having him beat up a cocky Bruce Lee (Mike Moh). The scene in query featured Lee boasting and difficult Booth to a throwdown, and as you’re most likely conscious by now, Booth finally ends up hurling Lee straight into the automobile of an outraged producer’s spouse (Zoe Bell). It was mined for all the everyday humor that one expects from a Pitt scene in a Tarantino film, however Bruce Lee’s daughter, Shannon, wasn’t amused.
In truth, Shannon was outraged after she attended the film, solely to “listen to people laugh at my father.” She was additionally offended at how Bruce “comes across as an arrogant asshole who was full of hot air.” Moh addressed the controversy by stating that the scene was written to point out that whereas Bruce was cocky, he was additionally human, and he believes that Bruce would have finally gained the combat that ended up being “a tie.” That might have been the top of the dialog, however Tarantino had extra to supply. He ended up defending the “arrogant” issue final week in Moscow throughout a press convention (by way of Indiewire):
“Bruce Lee was kind of an arrogant guy. The way he was talking, I didn’t just make a lot of that up. I heard him say things like that to that effect. If people are saying, ‘Well he never said he could beat up Mohammad Ali,’ well yeah he did. Alright? Not only did he say that but his wife, Linda Lee, said that in her first biography I ever read. She absolutely said that.”
Tarantino continued, stressing that whereas Pitt couldn’t have defeated Bruce Lee, Booth was succesful as a result of he’s a fictional character, and Tarantino wished to put in writing him that manner. He additional confused that Booth was a Green Beret and had killed males by way of hand-to-hand fight, and Lee held respect for warriors and fight, however he merely didn’t know that Booth held these talents. You can watch that phase of the press convention on YouTube, and whereas it gained’t extinguish the controversy, Tarantino most likely didn’t intention for that finish objective whereas addressing the scene both. If he’s critical about shifting into retirement, Tarantino positive will miss making individuals offended sometime.
