Overview

Before embarking on his latest sprawling meta-odyssey with Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, revisit Quentin Tarantino’s 1997 homage to all things foxy, thrillingly criminal and Blaxploitation-centric. When flight attendant Jackie Brown (the incomparable Pam Grier) is busted smuggling money for her arms dealer boss Ordell (Samuel L. Jackson), a pair of federal agents (Michael Keaton and Michael Bowen) enlist her to take him down. Caught between two immovable forces, Brown decides instead to double-cross both parties and skip town with the money herself. What follows is a typically quotable, perfectly soundtracked and surprisingly underrated gem that earned a veritable slew of acting awards for its all-star cast.

Why You Should See This Film

Adapted from the blistering Elmore Leonard novel Rum Punch (1992), Jackie Brown ramps up the author’s flair for picturing the seedy underworld and keeps his pin-sharp plotting in tact. The result is a glorious and richly deserved star vehicle for Grier – the brilliant veteran of ‘70s pictures like Coffy and Foxy Brown – and a more thoughtful follow-up to Tarantino’s preceding releases, Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction.
