    I like how Tarantino instead of making jokes so the audience laughs, he's basically just having a conversation with Jimmy.

              "A groovy conversation with Tom Hanks"? Err... okay. After watching Tom Hanks' reaction at the Golden Globes- I'm sure that conversation was riveting. 🙄

                          Quentin is lying. He worked at Video Archives in the 80's, so how in the hell did he recommend a movie that wasn't released until 1997???

                                    Tarantino should do a cameo in a movie as a video store clerk.

He used his influence to give attention to a little known documentary with a lot of heart. He's a professional liar as a filmmaker anyway. I don't mind being lied to if it leads me to something good and sincere. I think that's how life works, we reach the best of the human condition through our fictions.

Just look at Werner Herzog's films and the artwork of Salvador Dali, for example. I believe that in order to reach the subconscious, the message can't be direct, because the subconscious doesn't respond to reason or logic, it responds to illusion and to fiction. The deepest truths are within fiction and mythology, in my opinion. Thanks for your response, man 👍

His heart was in the right place and that's what matters mostly, our good intentions. He's a professional liar as a filmmaker anyway. I don't mind being lied to if it leads me to something good and sincere. I think that's how life works, we reach the best of the human condition through our fictions.
