This is the first time you see Uma Thurman's character on screen, and it's right after she's been using a kinda deep sexy voice over an intercom to guide John Travolta around the house.

I don't have a problem with it, it's not like Uma Thurman didn't know exactly what was being filmed at that moment and it's not like Tarantino was holding her dream movie hostage like Weinstein did with with Hayek and Frida

The Kill Bill stunt that almost killed her is closer to that type of situation. But you have to read interviews and stuff to know about that, versus just watch a very popular movie.

Also Thurman and he are supposedly close friends now, he publicly apologized several times and she’s come out in defense of him since then.

Probably not. But he still did that. Like Uma was the one who said he did it. And he did do a tiny blurb for an interview about it after the fact.

Tarantino is also no stranger to near constant accusations of sexual perversion, it’s really easy to imagine someone like that not wanting to draw attention to it

I read one interview where he was talking about how he likes that we now have camera phones because people would wake up when he'd use a Polaroid camera to photograph people with dildos if they fell asleep on his set.

Cameron is into feet too. Just not sexually.
Aliens has lots of shots of feet. Off the top of my head; the first shot of a space marine on the planet is a boot stomping in a puddle, the cocooned colonists shoe, acid dripping on to Bishop's foot, the reveal of the power loader, the queen grabbing Ripley's shoe while getting sucked into space. I'm sure there's more I'm forgetting.

Also in Terminator there's a skull stomped by a metal foot. And in T2 there's a slo mo shot of Arnie treading on a rose from the bouquet he hid his shot gun in.

Feet are a pretty common motif generally, how many times are we introduced to a character feet-first and panning up to reveal their face?

A lot of this comes down to the supposed deviancy of the fetish rather than it being somehow abnormal for directors to include sexually suggestive content in movies though. If we were talking about a movie that highlighted a woman's breasts, or body in general, we'd be describing like 90% of hollywood movies.

Who is Hollywood's premiere rear end man?

Also, it explains a lot that gratuitous sexuality in movies is the result of horny and/or spiteful producers who just have to objectify women if they're going to be featured at all.

Tarintino doesn’t come across as a particularly nice person. He mentioned recently that he doesn’t help out his mom financially because she told him not to be a filmmaker when he was a kid.

lol being into feet is like the “I saw The Godfather, therefore I’m a cinephile” of kinks. Honestly, posts like this are way weirder and say way more about the person behind them than a filmmaker being upfront about a relatively commonplace paraphilia

Like the fact that you would even name it in the same breath as “being Harvey Weinstein” is really really bizarre but that’s a Groovelord Neato post for you. How do you feel about people who do BDSM?

I think it's getting into a weird place to be judging him based on his relationship to his mum. We don't know anything substantial about that, or whether she needs his assistance; nor should we.

There's nothing wrong with liking feet if whatever you're doing with feet is consensual and not harming anything. It's really weird how that's looked upon a lot as like the most depraved possible perversion compared to a lot of other stuff.

zombies + sharks = fun



Someone doesn't have to be a Weinstein-style rapist to be a loving creep though.

Tarantino wrote a scene about his character engaging in his personal fetish in a very public setting. It doesn't matter how tame the fetish is, and the fact that foot stuff is pretty mild would make it easier for him to involve that kink in movies.

That doesn't necessarily hit the level of exiling him from Hollywood forever. But this whole thread is about powerful people, mostly men, using their position to indulge their sexual desires. Tarantino setting things up so that he got to suck Salma Hayek's toes fits as an example of that whether or not it's outright abusive.

The greatest sensual pleasure there is is to know the desires of another!



Fun Shoe

It's not really about the fact that he has a thing with feet, it's that he's bringing it into the workplace and using his position as a director to get women to participate in his fetish with him. It's unprofessional at best. The comparison to Weinstein is obviously off-base though.

Nobody chooses what gets them horny, that’s not how being horny works. If someone is into feet it has more to do with their brain chemistry and hormone levels than it has to do with them making the conscious decision to fetishize a particular part of someone’s body or a specific behavior
