Well, my perspective is a bit different from most of the folks here since I believe Jackie Brown to be Tarantino’s best movie, surpassing even Pulp Fiction (which is a masterpiece of cinema itself).
Tarantino lives and breathes genre films–he has made his vampire movie (From Dusk Til Dawn, directed by Robert Rodriguez from Tarantino’s script); his caper movie (True Romance); his gangster movie (Pulp Fiction); and his 70’s blaxpoitation movie (Jackie Brown). Now he is releasing his tribute to the martial arts films of Bruce Lee and Sonny Chiba.
It. Is. Going. To. Rock.
It will have interesting dialogue, terrific fight scenes, outstanding performances, and it will resurrect David Carradine’s career.
And it has Uma Thurman and Lucy Liu, so you straight boys should be lining up at the box office right now.
