Conversation with a snob

Film critic (via SMS): Pinapa-interview sa akin ni __________ [name of editor] si Tarantino. Anong gagawin ko?

Me: Ha, e di go! Si Tarantino 'yan a!

Film critic: Ano naman ang pag-uusapan namin? Hong Kong movies? Buti pa kung si Godard yan.

Me: In time, Tarantino will be considered the Godard of his generation, haha!

Film critic: Mapipilitan na talaga akong panoorin itong “Reservoir Dogs” na'to, hmp!

Boss, binaliktad mo yata e. The film critic sounded more like you, he he.

i guess asking who this self-important film-"critic" is is pointless. a real intellectual will never hesitate to converse with either the Pope or the magbobote in the next corner; with Andy Warhol or Andy Dick, with Quentin Tarantino or Quentin Crisp. Besides, Tarantino, for better or worse, had done much for Asian cinema and/in Hollywood.

And with that attitude, I don't think Godard will give him/her even a sneeze. The French are good at detecting poseurs.

That's what I like about you. You give equal space to a group ofhighschoolers and Bergman. Because at the end of the day, real Art does not seek to place categories and levels, but only seeks to make people think and feel. Write on!

^He couldn't have said it better. :)

erasmusa said...

this is a hilarious exchange. i am no tarantino fan either, but i'd be happy to do the job.

utakGAGO said...

Same with Erasmusa, I'd be happy to meet Quentin Tarantino. Though, wala nga lang akong alam about him: except the Pulp Fiction na movie nya. Yun lang. Lol.

CokskiBlue said...

Right on beektur. :)

If I'm not a fan and yet have the chance to interview someone, anyone. I dunno. I just might come up with very random questions like "Do you like pizza?" Hehe.

D ba 'to binabasa ng ka-text mo? Hehe.

the philosphical bastard said...

kawawa naman siya.. napilitan. ahehe. he might have gained more info reading wikipedia than watching the movie though. :P

Hmmph! Snob nga! Siguro di gumagamit ng kutsara yung critic pag kumakain kundi fork and knife lang... sosyal.

So I'm assuming the snob speaks French? Patricia

decorator said...

sino 'yung film critic? iilan lang naman ang film critics. ba't hindi natin isa-isahin? i-expose ang isnaberang kritiko na pa-godard-godard-kuning-kuning, subalist closet-fan ng harry potter series.

Nice said...

ay naku good luck na lang kay film critic. sana magtagumpay siya sa mga pangarap nya.

hi, gibbs. more power!

sasha said...

Hahah.. sayang opportunity to interview Tarantino. :)

jayclops said...

ako din kaya. mapipilitan akong panoorin yung reservor dogs na matagal ng nakabinbin. hehe. pero di ko naman sya i-interviewhin so no pressure. hahahaha.

gibbs cadiz said...

ARYO, hehe, excuse me? i've a blog that's always hungry for stories. i'd whore to get up close with tarantino, haha! :)

BEEKTUR, naku, buti na lang di nagi-internet si film critic, nyehehe. otherwise, baka mapa-french siya sa panunuya mo. :)

POYTEE, hello! musta na? :)

ERASMUSA, same here! :)

KEVIN, you mean you haven't seen kill bill 1 and 2? oh right, those were r-18 pics and you were too young then. ihatechu! hehe. :)

COY, or maybe, do you have a dog? or what's your favorite color? or, define love? hehe. buti na lang di siya marunong mag-internet at mag-blog. :)

PAOLO, di rin siya marunong mag-wikipedia, hahaha! :)

gibbs cadiz said...

SNGLGUY, on the contrary, nagko-commute lang siya, minsan lang bumili ng bagong damit, at walang arte sa katawan. strange 'no? hehe. :)

PATRICIA, hi, musta na? haha, maybe, but i've never heard him do that. he better learn to pag matuloy siya interviewin si godard. :)

DECORATOR, mizmo! :)

ANONYMOUS, uy di naman, haha, di rin siya into harry potter. into high-brow films talaga ang gaga. :)

hi NICE! thanks and more power to you too! :)

SASHA, well, di naman nasayang because he really has to go and interview tarantino. :)

JAYCLOPS, go! am sure you'd enjoy the film. don't cringe when you see the ear getting cut off. ay, ooops! :)

Annamanila said...

I don't really know how good or bad Quentin Tarantino is but .... perhaps you could have asked the critic: "are you complaining or are you bragging?"

some people do mislead you know. ay ang sama ko ba?

andrea said...

ahahahaha. laugh trip tong entry na to gibbsy.=D

kasalukuyang ini-interview ni "snob" si tarantino ngayon habang nagco-comment ako. i hope walang languange barrier na nagaganap. baka kailangan ni snob ng interpreter, unless marunong mag-bisaya si tarantino.

buti na lang hindi blogger yang high-brow snob na yang nagngangalang.... chuva! =D

Anonymous said...

Hmm, I think Annamanila is right. The snob sounded more like this, "Eat your heart out! Mamatay ka sa inggit, I'll be interviewing Tarantino. Laban ka?" That's the best definiton of reading between the lines. LOL

gibbs cadiz said...

ANNA, haha, maybe. i do know the guy, however. he's not one to brag to me. :)

ANDREA, ssssh! :)

ANONYMOUS, that reading can fly. too bad for him, though, since bragging like that doesn't work with me. :)

c5 said...

Baka naman more of anxiety na baka hindi nya magawa ang dapat nyang gawin? More of like fear to fail so wag na lang?

Tnx for passing by my blog. :) I see you have an entertaining one. :)
