Bill O’Reilly Blasts Quentin Tarantino for ‘Spreading Big Lies’ About Police Brutality.

NEW YORK: The New York police union is calling for a boycott of Quentin Tarantino movies following his rally against police brutality at Washington Square Park last week. The director referred to police as ‘murderers’ during the rally on October 24, sparking outrage among members of the city’s police union. “It’s no surprise that someone who makes a living glorifying crime and violence is a cop hater too,” Patrick Lynch, president of the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, said in a statement. “The police officers that Quentin Tarantino calls ‘murderers’ aren’t living in one of his depraved big-screen fantasies — they’re risking and sometimes sacrificing their lives to protect communities from real crime and mayhem,” he added. “New Yorkers need to send a message to this purveyor of degeneracy that he has no business coming to our city to peddle his slanderous ‘Cop Fiction’.” While addressing protestors at his rally, Tarantino had fired up the crowd with a speech that was accompanied by images of those who have been killed by police, including Justin Smith. “I’m a human being with a conscience. In the Talking Points Memo segment, O’Reilly showed a clip of Tarantino talking about Michael Brown at the rally, with the host disagreeing with Tarantino’s version of the incident. “Tarantino reading from a script. They exonerated Officer Wilson as testimony clearly demonstrated Michael Brown attacked the officer violently,” the host said. “But to Tarantino, who lives in a world of his own, facts don’t matter. If it was being dealt with, then these murdering cops would be in jail or at least be facing charges.” Tarantino’s upcoming movie The Hateful Eight, starring Samuel L Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Demian Bichir, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen and Bruce Dern, is slated to release in the US on December 25.

Activist Carl Dix, who helped found RiseUpOctober with with academic and activist Cornel West, said that while he sympathized with Holder’s family the officer’s death did not affect the need to hold Saturday’s rally as scheduled.

I think he destroyed his career, because anyone who’s hearing that is gonna go, ‘You know what, maybe I’m not gonna see his movies,'” O’Reilly said. 2015 may not bring everything that Back to the Future II promised it would: flying cars, self-lacing shoes, we don’t see ’em happening over the next 12 months. (Then again, don’t bet against Nike.) But this year will definitely pack plenty of punch when it comes to cultural happenings. Mad Max will roar back out of the apocalypse while Mad Men rides off into the sunset, rock’s Antichrist Superstar and hip-hop’s Yeezus will rise again.

Director X has been making music videos with pop’s biggest stars for over 15 years — but he’s never seen anything like the reaction to Drake’s “Hotline Bling.” Released earlier this week, the “Hotline Bling” video became instantly memorable (and meme-able) for its hypnotic, minimal vibe showcasing Drake’s endearing goofball dance moves and X’s highly stylized sets. As X prepares to shoot his first feature film — he won’t name it, but mentions it’s a dance movie — he took some time out to talk about musicians as directors, the talented choreographer Tanisha Scott, his relationship to the work of acclaimed light artist James Turrell and more.

I like doing my own thing, but I also like it when an artist has a clear vision for themselves and you can focus on molding that idea into a full working piece.
