Normally, when a celebrity is interviewed, the answers are edited down into a super condensed five minute slot, or spread across a documentary. You can normally tell their interview has been chopped, and I have always been curious why they don't just show the whole lot. Until now. Prior to A Look Back At Jackie Brown, I think Tarantino must have drank a dozen cappuccinos, followed with several bottles of Red Bull - the guy just can't keep still, or speak at anything less than breakneck speed. It's hard to stay with him for five minutes, never mind the near hour this interview goes on for. Bear with it, though and Tarantino reveals a deep, near eidetic memory regarding cinema of any kind. It is refreshing to see someone who is so fervently a lover of such diverse movies. At one point he describes how Michael Keaton manages to play the same role in two different movies (Jackie Brown and Out of Sight) made by two different studios within six months of each other. Tarantino is near effervescent as he recollects how “...the studios put aside their bullshit and made something artistic happen!”. As I said it is hard to stay with him, but it is worth it.
Chick with Guns Video is the full version of the video that Ordell uses as a gun guide. The video is perfectly done. You can imagine some AK47 manufacturer shipping this out to their favourite customers at Christmas.
There is a lack of diversity within the extra's, despite the quality of the main two, which marks down an otherwise good show.
Brown is the least Tarantino Tarantino movie . To some this may be off putting, but to me Brown is the most watchable character driven movie he has made.
