Iconic director Quentin Tarantino has said Hollywood had become more about virtue signaling and ideology rather than entertaining.

During an episode of “Real Time with Bill Maher," The Pulp Fiction director was asked about an encounter he had with a reporter at the 2019 Cannes film festival when she complained that actress Margot Robbie’s part in “Once Upon a Time Hollywood” wasn’t big enough.

“I’ve always really appreciated the way you’ve pushed back when everyone’s tried to stifle you, shut you up, shame you, bully you, corral your artistic license — they tried it with the last one, with ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,’ some bullsh** about Margot Robbie doesn’t have enough lines,” said Maher.

“You do what I wish other people would do: instead of apologizing like a little pu*** you say, ‘I don’t agree with your assessment.’ What’s so hard about that?”

Tarantino responded by reflecting on how political agendas are now prominent in the entertainment business these days.

“There has become a thing that’s gone on, especially in this last year, where ideology is more important than art,” Tarantino said.

“Way more. Certainly to the awards,” Maher agreed.

Tarantino went on:

“Ideology trumps art. Ideology trumps individual effort. Ideology trumps good. Ideology trumps entertaining,” Tarantino added to applause.

“There’s two kinds of movies—virtue signalers and superhero movies,” Maher summed matters up.

Tarantino said he believes Hollywood's current woke obsession won’t last forever.

“Just looking at the ’40s, even though it was wartime, that was also when you had film noir. Even with the Hays Code! You had these dark, dark stories being told.”

Meanwhile, left-leaning media outlets weren’t happy with the conversation.

The Daily Beast said of the interview:

“Given the extraordinary egos in play, there was a high likelihood of this HBO tête-à-tête being insufferable, and about how the current state of cinema is too politically correct. And — surprise — it was just that.”

Inside Hook didn't like Maher’s characterization of the state of cinema.

“As befits a discussion between a guy who’s taken to decrying ‘cancel culture’ and a filmmaker who’s rarely shied away from controversy, the conversation also veered into the ways politics and cinema can collide,” its story said.

“While Maher has made the same argument about the year’s Oscar nominees already this year, it’s also worth stating that it’s no more correct now than it was then. It is somewhat surprising to see Tarantino — who’s always been fairly attuned to the state of cinema past and present — signing on to this take.
