Quentin Tarantino’s Impression on ‘Top Gun’

This made me laugh a lot since the movie is a classic and I’m still a fan but this does bring new light to the film.

“You’ve got Maverick, all right, and he’s on the edge, man,” Tarantino recounts in language both more fanboyish and evocative than I could provide. “He’s right on the f*cking line, all right? And you’ve got Iceman, and all his crew. They’re gay, they represent the gay man, all right? And they’re saying, go, go the gay way, go the gay way.”

“He could go both ways,” QT continues. “Kelly McGillis, she’s heterosexuality. She’s saying: no, no, no, no, no, no, go the normal way, play by the rules, go the normal way.”

“He goes to her house, all right?” explains Tarantino. “It looks like they’re going to have sex, you know, they’re just kind of sitting back, he’s takin’ a shower and everything. They don’t have sex. He gets on the motorcycle, drives away. She’s like, ‘What the f*ck is going on here?’”

“Next scene you see her,” the former video store clerk and perennial film fanatic continues, “she’s in the elevator, she is dressed like a guy. She’s got the cap on, she’s got the aviator glasses, she’s wearing the same jacket that the Iceman wears. She is, okay, this is how I gotta get this guy, this guy’s going towards the gay way, I gotta bring him back, I gotta bring him back from the gay way, so I’ll do that through subterfuge. I’m gonna dress like a man.”

“The real ending of the movie is when they fight the MIGs at the end, because he has passed over into the gay way,” Quentin maintains. “And they’re beating the Russians, the gays are beating the Russians. And it’s over, and they f*cking landing, and Iceman’s been trying to get Maverick the entire time, and finally, he’s got him, all right?”

“And what is the last f*cking line that they have together?” Tarantino asks rhetorically. “Ice comes up to Maverick and says, ‘Man, you can ride my tail anytime!’ And what does Maverick say? ‘You can ride mine!’”
