Back when he was only 20 years old, Quentin Tarantino interviewed Milius, he’s now made that interview available.
We keep getting more great content from QT, proving that when he promised us he’d be a man of letters and write about film as he grew older, he was telling the truth.
“I was taken duck hunting by John Milius, Steven Spielberg and Robert Zemeckis. John and I sat in a duck blind all day, sipping whiskey out of a flask, talking about movies” – Quentin Tarantino
On his New Beverly blog, Tarantino has published this interview he did with John Milius and it’s a great insight into how the filmmaker was influenced, and where his mind goes as a creative. Here is how he introduces the interview:
“This interview with writer-director John Milius was conducted when I was twenty years old (and boy does it show). The last film he had done at the time was Conan the Barbarian. I just called up his assistant and told her I was writing a book, and she set me up with an interview with him. I met with him twice for the interview.”
