PAM GRIER WILL ATTEND THE JULY 21 SCREENING OF “JACKIE BROWN.”

I’m not a big Quentin Tarantino fan, but his best movie by far is 1997’s underrated Jackie Brown. It proved he had the discipline to generate real suspense with a twisty plot and unpredictable characters rather than rely on grindhouse memes and gimmicky sequences of action and violence. And it allowed the great Pam Grier to display a new confidence and maturity as an actress without sacrificing her ass-kicking instincts.

The Lone Star Film Society will show Jackie Brown 7pm Thu (July 21) at The Modern. Grier will be in attendance to introduce the screening. Tix are $8-10. An iconic presence of ‘70s crime cinema, Grier still radiates a unique blend of toughness and tenderness, sensuality and craftiness. She’s indicated in past interviews that she owes a huge professional debt to Tarantino for reviving her career, so let’s see what she has to say.
