EP. 306 — Jackie Brown

Amy & Paul jam to The Delfonics with 1997’s Quentin Tarantino crime saga Jackie Brown! They learn what Elmore Leonard thought of this Rum Punch adaptation, praise a sneakily scary Samuel L. Jackson performance, and discuss how this film, which initially befuddled critics expecting the next Pulp Fiction, became one of Tarantino’s most beloved works. Plus: was Sylvester Stallone really up for a role?

 

Next week, Paul & Amy kick off a Best Picture winners series with Amadeus! You can join the conversation on Paul’s Discord at https://discord.gg/ZwtygZGTa6. Check out this week’s spotlight episode from the Unspooled archives, Pulp Fiction: https://www.earwolf.com/episode/pulp-fiction/.

 

Paul’s book Joyful Recollections of Trauma is on presale now! Find it at https://www.paulscheer.com/my-book
