Jackie Brown, Elmore Leonard

Last night I watched Jackie Brown (on Netflix), a Tarantino movie.

Nice movie.

Robert De Niro plays a strange supporting role, a daft accomplice of arms dealer Samuel L. Jackson. I thought: the big De Niro playing such a non-descript character, that’s fantastic.

More thoughts.

I saw the movie was based on a book of Elmore Leonard, I writer I had never heard of, but I recently watch an interesting video about him. The role Samuel L. Jackson plays reminds me of his role in Kingsman: The Secret Service. A ruthless criminal shot in the climax of the movie. And then on comparing these stories: Jackie Brown is a way more interesting story than the flat action-movie story of Kingsman.
