“Tarantino named his production company after one of my films. He’d have done better to give me some money.” That is, of course, Jean-Luc Godard insulting QT. Flavorwire has collected what they consider the thirty harshest filmmaker-on-filmmaker insults, and there are some really delicious ones. The quotes from Vincent Gallo are particularly acidic (and eye-rolly, depending on how seriously you take him as a filmmaker).
Flavorwire previously posted a collection of harsh author-on-author insults, which is also worth a look if you missed it. Which are your favorites? Do you know some good ones that they missed? Artist-on-artist? Musician-on-musician? Director-on-actor? Some quick googling turned up this nasty little line from Otto Preminger about Marilyn Monroe: “She’s a vacuum with nipples.” Oh snap.
