I let slip that I like to write a lot about things in my life, an adult said “oh, you keep a diary, that’s cute” and my cheeks went red, so mad at myself for my temporary indiscretion, I feel there’s so much judgment when people hear you write about yourself/your life, like it’s some pathetic or cute little quirk, when really, sometimes it’s the only thing I feel I can turn to.

This society is going to become more supremely racist when it is apparently not racist. And that’s where it’s moving to at this point. When a white man tells you, “let’s not put race into this,” he is being the most racist at that point.

You can have a society that removes all public expression on racism. You can have a society were people no longer overtly express racial hatred, and racist statements and behavior is outlawed, but you can still have a system that destroys millions and millions of Black people. Colin Powell and others are the signs of that kind of racism where the Black middle class will be sitting in these jobs and positions defending the system.

You must recognize that racism is not an attitude. It is not a feeling of hatred toward another people. You must understand that racism and white supremacy is in the very structures and values of the institutions of the society itself. And until you revolve and change those structures and attitudes and values you will always be under the bottom.

When I was doing my first movie, the only thing I knew is that I wanted a female editor. Because I just felt a female editor would be more nurturing. To the movie and to me. They wouldn’t try to be winning their way just to win their way, all right? They wouldn’t be trying to shove their agenda or win their battles with me. They would be nurturing me through this process.

Quentin Tarantino, “The Cutting Edge: The Magic of Movie Editing”

this is a weird documentary. they use the default pronoun “he” to refer to editors, yet time and again there’s creepy shit in there about the way male directors, with their massive egos, have used these “invisible” non-celebrated women collaborators for their own self-aggrandizement

also tarantino sounds like a fucking sexist prick here

esp. given the fact that women in Hollywood are simply not allowed the opportunities as a director that a white man like him received

they’re second-place little helpmeets who are disallowed from the big time

and they’ve got to ~nurture~ you without getting the kind of credit you get as a white male director

bleh

It’s double gross because the drop of editing quality in Django was SO DAMN OBVIOUS. Sally Menke was who defined that delicious postmodern visual handwriting for him (and it’s shameful I only learned that late in art school, after years of considering myself “a film buff”), and her passing is a great loss to the craft.

(via thiswontbebigondignity)

I didn’t know Sally Menke’s name or how much of the work attributed to The Great Tarantino is hers before tonight

it’s sickening how women’s artistic genius is erased

and Tarantino got exactly what he wanted: someone to “nurture” him and make him look good as an artist

and never be spoken of

never take any of the limelight from him

because fucking nobody cares about women and their achievements

and white male directors have been and continue to be the little feted monstergod babies of Hollywood

Film editing is one of those positions that women take because they can’t get hired as directors. Kind of like how women in the comics industry end up as colorists because noone wants them as the headline artist.

How many great directors have partnered consistently with female editors? A lot of them. Scorsese is a great example. Thelma Schoonmaker has edited every single one of his films since 1980, starting with Raging Bull. She is instrumental to his success. But is she a household name like Scorsese is? Of course not.

Imagine a world where she directed her own films, and what those films could have been like. I’m not saying all film editors wish they were directors or anything. But it’s no coincidence that the position most open to female moviemakers is the most unsung, and that’s part of why there are so few female directors today.
