JACKIE BROWN

(1997) dir Quentin Tarantino w/Pam Grier, Robert Forster, Samuel L. Jackson, Bridget Fonda, Michael Keaton, Robert De Niro [154 min; 35mm]
Like REPO MAN, it’s tough to really pin JACKIE BROWN down as a neonoir but, as with any Tarantino film, there are so many influences here that noir is definitely among them. The inimitable Pam Grier stars as a flight attendant who, tired of being taken advantage of, develops a daring scheme to rip off a gunrunner (Jackson).

“Unlike most other genre cinema, the female starring Blaxploitation pictures were as popular, if not more so, than their male fronted counterparts.” Justin LaLiberty looks at Pam Grier’s role in the popularity of Blaxploitation cinema in the 1970s for Brattle Film Notes.
