After the Colorado massacre, NY mayor Michael Bloomberg has been pressuring President Obama and Mitt Romney to take a tougher stance on gun laws. Now Harvey Weinstein has joined the fight, stating that it's time for Hollywood to address how violence in movies influences people.
"I think as filmmakers we should sit down -- the Marty Scorseses, the Quentin Tarantinos and hopefully all of us who deal in violence in movies -- and discuss our role in that," Weinstein said.
It's a well-known fact that there was zero violence before movies, but it's also a fact (a real fact) that Weinstein is responsible for some of the most bloodies films out there, including "Inglourious Basterds," "Pulp Fiction," "Piranha 3D," and the "Kill Bill" films. This is something the filmmaker has struggled with.
"I've been involved with violent movies, and then I've said at a certain point, 'I can't take it anymore. Please cut it,'" he explained. "You know, you've got to respect the filmmaker, and it's a really tough issue."
