I'm not gonna lie, I think "Jackie Brown" is an absolute masterpiece! It's Tarantino's hangout movie. People can say what they want about the film and that's it's not as great as "Pulp Fiction," or his other movies such as "The Hateful Eight," but I think "Jackie Brown" definitely deserves to be seen and included in the Tarantino filmography as one of his finest movies he has directed. Sam Jackson once said in an interview that the thing about "Jackie Brown" is that it's just not "Pulp Fiction 2" and he's right. Tarantino himself even said he wasn't trying at all to top "Pulp Fiction" when he made "Jackie Brown," and that he was going even further down the rabbit hole, so to speak and do an even more deeper character piece with this one than what he did with "Pulp Fiction." And it shows. It shows greatly, but mostly because of Tarantino's awesome soundtrack for the film that I feel is the reason keeps you completely entertained throughout the whole movie. It's got that ultimate 70's feel to it like all Tarantino films do, but this one especially stands out. You can tell Tarantino is an ultimate product of the 70's, and I say the word "ultimate" because nobody has ever captured the essence of 70's music the way Tarantino has with all his films starting all the way back to "Reservoir Dogs" with "Little Green Bag" by the George Baker Selection. Even the way the characters talk, move and act in his films, you can clearly tell that this is a man who not only grew up in the 70's, but hung out with some really cool cats and paid attention to every detail! For me the number one intriguing thing for me in "Jackie Brown" is Robert DeNiro. The man really is the greatest actor of his generation, HANDS DOWN! And personally my favorite actor next to Jack Nicholson. There's something about DeNiro's character in this film that's much more mellow than all the other previous roles he has portrayed, especially in his 8 collaborations with Martin Scorsese and his films. But with the role of Louis, Robert DeNiro really did something quite extraordinary by playing an ex-con, who recently has just been let out of prison and is slowly getting back in the game with his arms dealer partner played incredibly by Samuel L. Jackson. DeNiro is very low key until the parking lot incident happens between him and Bridget Fonda, who is absolutely sexy as hell in this film! And then we see what DeNiro's character is all about. It's probably the best scene in the movie, and probably because it's so unexpected what DeNiro's character does to Bridget Fonda's Melanie. The blonde headed surfer girl who couldn't keep her mouth shut, even when she was warned cautiously by DeNiro's character before you know what happens. And then DeNiro drives off in the 70's hippie van listening to "Midnight Confession" by The Grassroots that Bridget Fonda's character was listening to earlier on the way to go pick up Sam Jackson's gun money at the shopping mall where the whole scam takes place. And that scam is upheld and cleverly thought of by Pam Grier herself, who is hot and I mean HOT in this film as the title character Jackie Brown. An airline stewardess who is struggling to make ends meet on a $16,000 a year salary, who also smuggles in money from Mexico for Sam Jackson's character Ordell Robbie. She owns the part completely. Nobody else could have played that role but her. It's absolutely her finest work to date as an actress. She is the airline cougar that every young man who dreams about dating an older woman would kill for just to go home with her. She has so much class and independence about her that you can clearly tell in the film that she doesn't depend on anybody, but herself. And that's what makes her character so damn attractive in the film. Also, the fact that she's the smartest character in the whole film is the reason we are so drawn to her in the film. She's street smart on all levels which is what makes her an absolute threat to both Sam Jackson's character and the feds (played excellent by both Michael Keaton and Michael Bowen) who have her in custody for smuggling cocaine in along with Sam Jackson's gun money. But she can't do it all by herself. She needs a partner to help her execute the scam against Sam Jackson, and the man to do it is Robert Forster, who plays Max Cherry. A bail bondsman, also Pam Grier's bail bondsman in the film, who she gets to along on the scam between her and Sam Jackson and gets a nice chunk out of it. Robert Forster is absolutely incredibly watchable in his role, he owns his role as much as Pam Grier owns hers and executes his character perfectly. He's a no bullshit guy, much like Grier's character is a no bullshit girl, which explains the attraction Forster's character feels when first capturing his eyes on Jackie Brown. Forster received an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor or his performance, and he rightfully deserved it as he he has not only the look, but physical requirement to play such a character. He has some great moments with Tarantino's dialogue that all the characters do in this film, especially Sam Jackson, who literally just eats it up like no man's business. But there' something about Robert Forster when he speaks, you immediately know that this is a guy who has seen and hear everything so don't try it! He's got that ex-cop turned bail bondsman going for him all the way in this movie, which makes it real interesting to watch him and Pam Grier interact with each other on screen as you feel watching the movie that even though they are playing older people in the movie, that their romance could happen! Shit, it happens everyday! We just don't know about it. So, there you go! Go checkout "Jackie Brown," an keep in mind some of the stuff that I said earlier in my review about the film and that it's Tarantino's hangout movie, not Pulp Fiction 2!
