Tarantino's Best? Definitely A Classy Crime Thriller - Jackie Brown review by GI

Spoiler Alert
16/04/2023

This is fast becoming my favourite Tarantino film. It's like a fine wine, it just gets better and better every time you taste it! Full of his great trademarks especially the camera angles which are endlessly entertaining this is also his most brilliantly plotted film and, of course, his only film that has an independent source namely Elmore Leonard's novel, Rum Punch. The plot is full of twists and turns and the entire structure of the film remains original and entertaining even after several viewings. And what fantastic performances from an innovative cast; Pam Grier nails it as the titular Jackie, clever, manipulative and devious but you can't help root for her; Samuel L. Jackson, fun yet evil in his best role for QT; Robert DeNiro, who is casual until he shows his true colours as Louis. Then the great Robert Forster, given a fresh break in being cast here and getting an Academy nomination to boot. Rounding out the impeccable entourage are Michael Keaton, Bridget Fonda and Chris Tucker. Jackie is a air hostesss who sidelines by smuggling illegal cash into the US for Ordell (Jackson), a paranoid gangster who will casually murder any of his crew if they get caught to prevent them doing a deal with the authorities to nail him. When Jackie gets busted she knows what Orell will do but she proves cleverer than either he or the police realise. This is one of those crime thrillers, full of dark humour, that made Tarantino such a refreshing filmmaker and I wish he's get back to films like this. This is a modern masterpiece and a film to really relish time and time again.
