Quentin Tarantino Honored at MOMA Film Benefit Gala

Posted on December 4, 2012

Director Quentin Tarantino was honored at the Museum of Modern Art's 5th annual Film Benefit gala. Quentin talked about his new film Django Unchained. He said he has always wanted to do a Western and he finally got a chance. The star of the film, Jamie Foxx, discussed the original song he produced with rapper Rick Ross for the film called "100 Black Coffins." Foxx says they hadn't seen the final cut of the film yet and Ross asked him what to rap about. Foxx told him the song had to be about loss, how you felt if someone took away your wife, your mother or your daughter. This is the first film for which Tarantino has commissioned original songs for the soundtrack. He also used already recorded material, straight off the vinyl records he listens to. He didn't want to use the cleaned up, digital versions. Producer Harvey Weinstein also attended the gala. He scoffed at Tarantino's comments that he would retire soon. Harvey doesn't believe it.
