5.0 out of 5 stars Tarentino's Most Underrated Movie, 17 Mar. 2006
This review is from: Jackie Brown - 2 Disc Collector's Edition [DVD] [1998] (DVD)
This is Quentin Tarentino's most underrated movie and probably the best.
I saw this in the cinema when it first came out and came out thinking it was brilliant. What makes this movie work so well is it's chilled out vibe. This is conveyed through the excellent sound track, derived from the blaxploitation movies of the 70s. I would say that this is the best soundtrack used yet in one of Quentins movies.
The film runs at a slow pace which can put off some viewers, but I found that there was enough going on in the plot to keep me watching. It may not have the same level of violence as most Tarentino movies, but the characters are deep and develop well over the 2.5 hours.
The dialogue, as can be expected by a Tarrentino movie is brilliant. It is rare to have a director with such talent that can make a hollywood movie, but have the ability to create this "Art House" vibe and make a movie that is different from the mainstream. Jackie Brown is the height of Tarrentinos movie making talent and I would recommed this to anyone who has a sense of style and taste, who isn't afraid of going against the flow.
