Quentin Tarantino on Charlie Rose

Quentin Tarantino recorded an hour long interview with Charlie Rose last week to promote Inglourious Basterds. You can download the WMV video file of the interview right now by clicking here.

(The video above is an interview with Robert Rodriguez when Grindhouse was being released, the current interview is only available at the links above)

As Rex points out, this “was one of the best TV experiences of 2009 so far.”

If you watch the interview for its duration, one of the interesting bits concerns a possible, maybe-future Tarantino project.

Tarantino said he has plans to one day make a movie based on the life of abolitionist John Brown, whose unsuccessful attempt to start a slave revolt at Harper’s Ferry in 1859 was but one catalyst helping to start the Civil War.  Tarantino told Rose John Brown is “my favorite American who ever lived.”
