The continuing misadventures of Ordell (now played by Samuel L Jackson), Louis (Robert De Niro), and Melanie (Bridget Fonda) - the characters from Life of Crime. This time they’re fixing to get hold of a half million dollars by way of air stewardess Jackie Brown (the incomparable Pam Grier). It’s Tarantino’s most mature and soulful movie.

"The movie that proves Tarantino is the real thing." Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

A sharp, compassionate, tender and piercing tale of a nine year old fighing to tame his stubbornly curly hair and, he hopes, win the love and affection of his over-burdened mom. From this seemingly trivial tale Venezuelan filmmaker Mariana Rondon fashions a memorable movie about sex identity, mothers and sons, love and disappointment. Winner: Best Film, San Sebastian Film Festival. 100% Fresh, Rotten Tomatoes

"At just 93 minutes, the movie breezes by but is anything but forgettable." Monica Catillo, Movie Mezzanine
