Quentin Tarantino, a genius who brought us Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs returned with Jackie Brown, a tale of deception in the world of drugs-smuggling business. Heavily inspired by the 1970’s blaxploitation flicks, it tells the story of a stewardess, Jackie Brown (Pam Grier) who was pinned inside the cash-smuggling business as she’s tormented between two choices, becoming a cash-mule and in the end snitching her own boss or being smart by keeping the money for herself. It’s quite rare to see a film where the leading role is a female. Even though the plot relies quite much on Elmore Leonard’s novel Rum Punch, Tarantino really did great in giving his own personal touch to the existing materials by adding up a fine composition of clever dialogue, dark humor, and even the ultra violence in the forms of gun-battling badasses, drugs, and absolutely very graphic language, making it absolutely a typical Tarantino flick.
This film also possessed its own controversies that put Tarantino in the prosecuted seat because of his frequent use of the word “nigger”. This serious accusation was made by Spike Lee who furiously (while busy counting) noted that was used 38 times, excessively, throughout the film and he claimed that it’s an abuse and definitely an insult to black people. Apart from the above accusation, in my opinion, Jackie Brown, with its strong casts from Pam Grier, Bridget Fonda, Robert Forester, and Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Keaton and Robert De Niro really add up to the greatness of the film. The way I see it, every cast here is given a complex set of character for us to study. Both De Niro and Keaton, despite their small roles, they remain favorable and memorable.
Coming as it did after critical darlings “Reservoir Dogs” and “Pulp Fiction”, it’s perhaps not surprising that Quentin Tarantino’s next film failed to – at the time – scale those giddy heights. Yet on reflection these days, when viewing Tarantino’s career over twenty years later, it’s one of his tightest works.
Working from master pulper Elmore Leonard’s novel “Rum Punch”, Tarantino had a concrete base from which to build on, which he does with aplomb. Cleaving close to the spirit of Leonard, “Jackie Brown” is rich with glorious chatter, each conversation either pings with a biting hard ass edge, or alternatively deconstructing the vagaries of the human condition.
Oh for sure this is a talky pic, but nothing is ever twee or pointless, for it’s a film that pays rich rewards to those prepared to fully grasp the characters on show, to be aware that all is building towards the final third. It’s then here where the story brings about its stings, with a complex operation cloaked in double crosses and evasive captures, of violence and more…
There’s a wonderful portion of the story that sees Tarantino play the same sequence out from different character perspectives, but this is not self indulgency. Tarantino reins himself in, not letting stylisations detract from the characters we are so heavily involved with. His other triumph is bringing Pam Grier and Robert Forster to the fore, who both deliver terrific performances. It’s through these pair, with their deft characterisations, where Jackie Brown is most poignant and purposeful.
Is it a case of “Jackie Brown” being undervalued in Tarantino’s armoury? Perhaps it is? For it’s ageless, holding up as a piece of intelligent work of note, and well worth revisiting by anyone who hasn’t seen it since it was first released. 9/10
Personally, I find it to be Quentin Tarantino’s Masterpiece
Sometimes a movie requires more than one viewing. The first time I sat down to watch Jackie Brown, I wasn’t so impressed. I didn’t hate the movie, but I didn’t love it either. I thought it was decent. The second time I watched it, I knew the plot already so I really got to indulge in the characters of the film. And thats exactly what the film is, it’s a character piece.
Those of you who expect an energetic, stylized, violent, comic book-esque film like Pulp Fiction will not get that from this movie. Its a lot more tamed, and to say the least realistic. I love Pulp Fiction, its one of my all time favorite movies. But I doubt in the real world there would be two hit men in matching black and white suits. The scenarios of that movie, while fun and totally entertaining, aren’t too realistic. Jackie Brown on the other hand has totally real characters that don’t come off as too over the top.
All the actors in the movie are superb.The lead is played by actress Pam Grier who nails the role. Tarantino again shows you don’t need an a-list actor to carry a movie. Grier plays Jackie Brown, an airline stuartess in her 40s. Samuel L. Jackson plays Ordell Robbie, a gun dealer who uses Jackie to bring him in money from Mexico. Robert DeNiro (in a smaller role for such a big actor) plays Louis, Ordell’s friend who recent got out of jail. Bridget Fonda plays Melanie, a “blonde haired surfer girl” who lives with Ordell. Michael Keaton (my all time favorite actor)plays ATF agent Ray Nicollette who wants to take down Ordell. And Robert Forster plays Max Cherry, a bail bonds man. Without giving too much away, all of these characters in one way or another are all after $500,000 of Ordell’s money. Every character in this movie is great and unique in their own way. But for me, Robert Forster steals the show. Max Cherry is without a doubt my favorite character in all of Quentin Tarantino’s movies.
To some people, this movie is just a crime/heist movie. But to me there is something quite beautiful to this movie. After a few viewings of the film, you will notice that underneath it all, this movie is really about two people. Jackie Brown and Max Cherry. Two people who are middle aged, lonely, and tired of their dead end jobs. Two people that meet in a very unlikely way. Two people that together figure out a way to steal $500,000 and get away with it. Take this movie however you want it. But to me, thats the heart of the movie, and thats why the movie works so well.
In conclusion, Jackie Brown is not a graphic crime story like Reservoir Dogs or Pulp Fiction that preceded it. Nor is it a stylized revenge saga like Kill Bill vol. 1 & 2 that followed it. Instead it is a stand alone film. A wonderfully acted character study. And for me, an absolute gem of a film. It’s Quentin Tarantino’s underrated MASTERPIECE.
One of the Best Movies ever made
I’ve never been a big fan of Mr. Tarantino’s movies, but when I viewed Jackie Brown I was smitten. I’ve been watching movies since talkies were in their infancy, through all the westerns and detective movies that kids like to “grown up” films, and I believe I’ve seen most of the best ones. But Jackie Brown is a film that has it all. Adapted from the Elmore Leonard novel, Mr. Tarantino has developed it into a sparkling tale featuring characters that are at once likeable and detestable. I don’t want to go into the plot because it may reveal too much, and I’d rather talk about the characters. Samuel L. Jackson as Ordell Robbie is a casual, fun-loving guy who deals in illegal arms. He’s all that but at the same time as ruthless as any mobster we’ve ever seen on the screen. Bridget Fonda is perfect as Melanie, an addicted bit of eye-candy who lounges about the house keeping Mr. Jackson company and doing little things such as answer the phone or bring him a drink. Robert De Niro in one of his finest performances is dull ex-con Louis Gara. He’s just out of prison. Mr. Jackson allows to stay with him for a while mostly for the extra company. Mr. De Niro doesn’t have to say or do much to show us he’s dull, possible has a fried brain from drugs. It shows in his eyes. They’re dull and we know he’s now quite all here. What we don’t at first know is that he has a very short fuse. That’s probably why he was in prison. Tiny Lister doesn’t actually do much. He finds people for Max Cherry. If we skipped bail we wouldn’t want him to come after us. We can see in his posture that he’s serious. Robert Forster is Max Cherry, a bail bondsman who’s tired, getting old and just wants to retire. But when the phone rings, he’s all business. Michael Keaton stands out as a jaunty agent who’s out to get Mr. Jackson but the real star that puts this film over the top is Pam Grier. She’s Jackie Brown, a middle-aged single woman working for a second-rate airline. She just wants to get enough money together for the future. Flying out of the country enables her to pick up gun money to bring to Mr. Jackson. Everyone in this ensemble cast is so perfect and some of the scenes are at once a jolt, yet at the same time inevitable, that one viewing is simply not enough. Nor are two. This is an amazing of artful direction.
