Special thanks to all our community commissioners for this podcast; Steven Sprague, Spencer H., Libby Ross, dreduble, Cellmouse, Brooks Rittel, betmarik, cocoa2mc, nobrainsallsadness, Martin Karlsson, Eric Brown, rjjone2, and Keith A. This podcast is for the 1997 Quentin Tarantino movie Jackie Brown, which is based on the classic Elmore Leonard novel, Rum Punch. Awfully good bones to build a movie on, then you add an amazing cast featuring Pam Grier, Robert DeNiro, Sam Jackson, Bridget Fonda, Robert Forster, Michael Keaton, among many others, and filter it through a restrained, grounded Tarantino lens, and you get something pretty magical, that was beyond what Jim and I were expecting. Thanks again for treating us to this movie! We hope you enjoy your podcast!
Time to revisit one of Tarantino’s most overlooked and most interesting films. Like most QT pictures, Jackie Brown is a movie that references the past while living firmly within the era it’s set. In this ‘cast, Eric and Levi walk through the deep characters, the twisting plot, and the powerhouse performances of this (maybe too long) cinematic experience. Join us next week for Kill Bill vol. 1.
