Beaten to the Punch

This week we talk about feelgood film Begin Again and the latest Elmore Leonard adaptation Life of Crime, which is incidentally a prequel to Tarantino’s Jackie Brown.

Speaking of Jackie Brown, I finally saw the light and realised that it’s an absolute cracker of a film. I’ve always thought of it as a bit of a misfire and Pete has always loved it, but now I see that I was wrong and he was so right: every moment of Jackie Brown is a joy. So that’s our first film for homework, along with Soderbergh’s excellent Out of Sight and Blake Edwards’ Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

But mostly the homework is Jackie Brown! Which is awesome! I really can’t overstate how awesome it is.

So come snuggle up on the couch and watch a movie — hey, how about Jackie Brown? — with Pete and Justin on the Shoot the Glass podcast!
