No Talking Tuesday # 225
January 17, 2012
This Tuesday found me back in the screening room at work watching the blue-ray edition of Jacky Brown.
I enjoyed the movie well enough. I like how De Niro plays this shlumpy so-what character, and I liked the overall pacing and snappy dialogue typical of Quentin Tarantino’s films. His films always feel like a pastiche of whatever genre he’s working in, and while well plotted, filmed and acted, never really draws me into the reality, and it seems would prefer me keep the films half ironically at arms length so I can better admire how clever they are.
