Jackie Brown ★★★★★

Tarantino’s immersive hangout double cross crime jam—a simple idea presented intricately, right down to Max Cherry or the Rashomon-esque heist scene. Subtle, sweet, and stocked with characters constantly breathing life into the screen. I can talk about Robert Forster buying a Delfonics tape or Jackie’s mug collection all day etc, or how awesome Pam Grier is but y’all know she’s amazing.

Jackie Brown will always be a favorite, exactly my kind of laid back caper—and in retrospect it feels like a long goodbye from Tarantino before leaving the 90’s and embarking on the (sprawling) double album-esque Bloody Affair of Kill Bill and (eventually) period piece concept albums.
