Jackie Brown

I finally watched Shaun's copy of Jackie Brown. It is, in many respects, a very faithful adaptation of the book, which unfortunately meant that I already knew any twists and turns. It's still a great character piece, though.

Those twists and turns form one of my biggest complaints about the movie -- specifically the big "caper" scene at the end of the movie. I really didn't think the caper was all that complicated and didn't need the same-scene-over-and-over treatment to convey the action. It really felt like Tarantino showing off rather than making the best choices for the story or the characters.
