In Tarantino’s adaptation of Elmore Leonard’s 1992 novel Rum Punch, we get the battle of the wits in Jackie Brown where a flight attendant, an arms dealer, an FBI agent, a detective, a bail bondsman, and a beach bunny are all out for that bag of half a million dollars. Things kick off when flight attendant Jackie Brown gets busted from smuggling money for her boss and is faced with a decision that will either set her free or end her life. Roger Ebert said in his review that it was, “a new film in a new style, and it evokes the particular magic of Elmore Leonard–who elevates the crime novel to a form of sociological comedy.” That, plus the magic of Pam Grier, Robert Forster, and Tarantino muse Samuel L. Jackson, pretty much define this Pulp Fiction follow up.
