The fitting room scene from Jackie Brown synced up

Jackie Brown Money Exchange Sequence Synchronized

I love Jackie Brown but I kinda wish Quentin Tarantino hadn’t directed it. Not because of the quality or style but… it’s a homage to blaxploitation films made by a white man who uses his films as a way to freely use the N-word. But let me jump off that soapbox.

The fitting room scene where Jackie Brown (Pam Grier) makes a money exchange in a department store was shot as a series of three separate scenes. The first one features Jackie, the second features Louis Gara and Melanie Ralston (Robert De Niro and Bridget Fonda), and the final scene shows Max Cherry (Robert Forster).

But thanks to YouTuber James Neumann, the non-linear becomes linear, and it doesn’t dilute the quality at all. In fact, having two scenes next to each other adds to the 60s/70s style of intensity and tension. That and I love outlines and grids in film and design.
