A clump of dirt is just annoying, choking carries far far greater risk.
At least Kruger was fine afterward. But considering the Kill Bill incident, where he completely missed seeing enormous curves on a road for the sake of “authenticity” in a shot where Uma’s face can't even be seen, his frequent flirting with actors’ lives can’t dismissed as incapable of harm.

The car thing is different. In that one, he actually pressured her to do the stunt when she didn't want to do it. That one is entirely on him, even if Uma Thurman forgave him.
But aside from the car incident, when has he "flirted" with actor's lives?

A correction there, Tarantino was strangling her not choking.
As Handsome Jack once said, choking is something you do when you like eat too fast, strangling is the act of another person crushing someone else's windpipe through whatever means.

Tarantino was not pretending, though. He testified he was actually cutting off Kruger's oxygen.
Bear in mind, it’s also not the only time he choked an actress; earlier he was the one strangling Uma with a chain during filming.

I will also point out that, even in consensual settings, choking is one of the most dangerous things to do. A lot of professionals (i.e. they get paid for their work) will not do choking or anything to crush the breath passages during sex acts. It's too much of a risk. Too easy to fuck up. And then there's a worse situation. It's a liability. If anything, they'll just cover the nose and mouth briefly which is significantly easier to course correct on or just mimic the act.
To have someone ACTUALLY being choked for the sake of acting is legitimately questionable.
To put it in comparison, you would never actually STAB someone while acting. Even if you aim right and know you won't hit anything or something, why the fuck would you? Too much could go wrong and that could result in serious injury or death. So why would you risk the same chance on choking someone out?
There are some things that are hard to judge based on the limited information we have. Michael J Fox and Brendan Fraser were almost hung for real on Back to the Future and The Mummy because of their efforts for realism. We also had little idea there was a Tarantino/Thurman feud from the Kill Bill accident until recently. It certainly doesn't sound good that Tarantino wanted to personally strangle Kruger, her opinion of how that went could change everything though (all stunts require some trust between the two involved to ensure safety and a quality performance).
Once again, sorry that I didn't do it in time. That one was Friday.
Kareem Abdul Jabbar, one of Bruce Lee's friends, doesn't approve of how Quentin Tarantino portrayed Lee in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
Yeah I was kind of iffy on Lee's portrayal too.
This movie is ultimately what I expected it to be - self-congratulatory award bait that can only be appreciated by movie critics anreadly aware of the cultural and historicall context.
The pacing was all over the place and there was a real lack of focus , but I suppose someone who was intimately familiar with Hollywood history wouldn't see it that way.
Don't most people go see a Quentin Tarantino film for his Author Appeal, not specifically the movie anyway?
He Is kinda like Tim Burton, he have one aesthetic and he know how make work.
Tarantino is actually more of an extreme Genre Roulette type of creator, particularly in that his films do not have traditional cinematic film structure. He's really more of a novelist who takes his stories in any direction he wants. Django Unchained and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood are more like novels, with Jackie Brown actually being from a book. Reservoir Dogs and The Hateful 8 are more like plays. Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill and Death Proof are direct homages to various genres.
While there is a lot of Tarantino-isms between all of them, it makes it really hard to narrow down exactly what makes a particular Tarantino story. That said, he also generally directs his own scripts, which I think makes the scripts look better than they are because he knows exactly what he is going for. Not many directors can get away with 10 minute conversations.
That explains a lot of the problems I have with the movie, actually
The one who suffer for it was clearly inglorious bastards since is clearly is structure IS NOT based for a movie but rather a series.
