The only problem with boycotting Quentin Tarantino movies—as many police unions and other advocacy groups plan to do—is that the director’s best work is most likely behind him.
When a movie like “Pulp Fiction” comes down the pike, you can organize your community all you want to effect protests and boycotts, but everyone other than cops is going to see it because it’s supposed to be awesome.
At any rate, if you’re a police supporter and also like going to the movies, you’ll have a decision to make when the director’s latest film, “Hateful Eight,” hits theaters on Christmas Day.
Some of the largest cop unions in the U.S. are planning to boycott anything Tarantino puts out, following Tarantino’s attendance earlier this month at a Rise Up demonstration in Manhattan against police brutality.
Speaking at the rally, Tarantino told the crowd: “When I see murders, I do not stand by. I have to call a murder a murder, and I have to call the murderers the murderers.”
