This is a great screenplay you wont wan't to put it down. Elmore Lenord does it again, you can't wait for the end, but you don't wan't the book to stop.

A tough no-nonsense female character was the draw for me. A great addition to my library. This seller has fast shipping and reasonable price. Thank you, looking forward to future purchases.

From the Elmore Leonard book, Quentin Tarantino is the best filmaker to take his work and turn it into the perfect movie that it is. Leonard's book was already good, but Tarantino understood how you need the extras in the story to make it great and the movie does all of that and more!

Tarantino and Leonard strike gold. This screenplay (in the words of Tarantino) "is about 50% Leonard and 50% me." Those are great numbers for any fan of these guys. The screenplay is great, and it's a cinematic pleasure to watch. Read this, I hope you'll agree.

Format: Paperback
The screenplay to Jackie Brown is much like Tarantino's critically acclaimed movie "Resevoir Dogs" The screenplay itself follows the same pattern as "Dogs" and "Pulp Fiction" but is an easier read because of the simplicity of its characters. A stewardess, a beach bum, A freshly out of jail pot smoker(played very well by Dinero in the movie) a bondsman and the usual Samuel L. Jackson character who fits into almost every character that Tarantino has in his movies or creates on his own. Each character is drawn with a bold line of simplicity and, as in his earlier movies, the ending is never cut and dry. The screenplay brings you to the plot point where you think that you see teh ending then he spins you around and upside down until you are slightly confused but even more interested in the ending then he springs it on you and when the smoke clears you can see the creativity to his work.. all of his movies that he casts in or writes is barraged with ideas and characters and varieties of endings that keep you wondering what is this man going to come up with next.. an excellent read for the scriptically addicted and a muse see for anyoen who wants to know where movie directing is heading in the future.

Why this wasn't well recieved i have no idea but qt is the most naturally talented screenwriter since Robert Towne. He seems to good to be true - however i saw him in wait until dark, and he does, in fact, exist.
