One of the most successful filmmakers, Quentin Tarantino, has said in an interview that his mother will never benefit from his success. He gives a sarcastic comment that she made about his writing career as the reason.
The creator of Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs was a guest on The Moment podcast and reflected on a comment his mother made years ago when he was still in school. According to Tarantino, his mother became angry because his school performance was not very good. She was also told by the school management that her son was constantly writing during class.
” My mother was called by the school and she was certainly not happy,” says the filmmaker. “She was berating me about it and in her diatribe, she said, ‘Oh, and by the way, this ‘little writing career’, with double quotes, this ‘little writing career’ is fucking over.”
Tarantino clearly never forgot the comment. “When she said that to me in that sarcastic way, I thought to myself, ‘Okay, lady. If I become a successful writer, you will never see a dime of my success. There will be no home for you. vacation for you. No Cadillac for Mom. You don’t get anything for saying so.”
The filmmaker says he has kept this promise so far. ” I helped her occasionally a problem with the tax, but that it also. No house, no car, no holidays. Nothing. ” According to Tarantino, there is an important lesson to learn for parents. ” What parents should remember is that there are consequences to your words when you interact with your children. Remember that there are consequences of your sarcastic tone about what is meaningful to them. ”
