Lowkey but excellent Tarantino film,
By A Customer
This review is from: Jackie Brown [DVD]  (DVD)
I may be wrong but I believe when this hit the cinema screens it didn't do as well as Pulp Fiction or Reservoir Dogs. It certainly did not have the same hype.
Its a very rewarding film however and you could even say the director has matured but thats not really the right word - I think he has gone for something different and proved he can make a good movie without flashy scenes and dialogue. He lets the actors get on with a well-written script, which concentrates on the title character. There is however an excellent robbery sequence told from various viewpoints that is a real delight. Its also shows Pam Grier as a great actress in a role that is perfect for her.
Thats the film. The DVD is ok too I guess: no special features which is always disappointing but the sound & picture are great and at ... you cant complain. Something I really didn't like though is that its split over the two sides of the DVD. Maybe there will be a Region 1 version available someday but for the moment you can only get this film in Region 2.
