TMBDOS! Episode 99: "Jackie Brown" (1997).
Lee and Daniel have finally made it to the end of the podcast's extended series on crime films with a massive episode on Quentin Tarantino's 1997 adaptation of Elmore Leonard's crime novel "Rum Punch". That's right, time to talk some Pam Grier in "Jackie Brown"! Is it QT's best film? Is it the best modern era crime film? Is this Grier's best work? Is Spike Lee an ass for being critical of the liberal use of the dreaded "N" word? All of this and much more is discussed at length, including a longer-than-usual talk about what they've watched as of late. Forgive them, as it's been a while since they've recorded together, so there was a lot of catching up to do.
Featured Music: "Long Time Woman" by Pam Grier; "The Lion and the Cucumber" by The Vampire's Sound Incorporation; "Cissy Strut" by The Meters; and "Didn't I (Blow Your Mind This Time)" by The Delfonics.
