Watched for Scavenger Hunt #31 (October), task 13: A film in which a robbery doesn't go to plan.
I use "robbery" a bit loosely here to more generally refer to criminal activities. This movie also coincidentally concludes my project to watch all of Quentin Tarantino's films (that is, the feature films he both wrote and directed in their entirety)!
And I have to say, this definitely did not disappoint! I think it in fact was more successful than Reservoir Dogs in its framing and "choreography" of the various scenes and actions that get knitted together--there's a certain kind of cinematic poetry to Jackie Brown that is far more enticing. There were also some extraordinarily striking shots Tarantino makes use of in this film that contribute to that smoothness--I'm such a sucker for a long take, and there are some really really nice instances of that here!
Overall, this is definitely a great last film to discover of his filmography! :)
