      Quentin's most "normal" work

      "Dangerous Relationship" Quentin's most "normal" work. The story tells how a middle-aged stewardess who survived the cracks of many interests reached the pinnacle of life. This is a very typical suspenseful film with multi-line character relationships. Since the audience is always in the perspective of God, although the decryption process becomes simple, it also magnifies the psychological satisfaction of watching the movie. The story is very complete, even a bit procrastinated, and...

      "Dangerous Relationship" 2017.05.25

      This is another work by Quentin Cangzhatian, which is very similar to a vulgar novel. If I were to make this movie, the previous characterization would be mixed in the middle, and then I would come back with memories from time to time. Editing, but Quentin’s description is also very good. The character’s personality is described very thoroughly. The early stage expressed the selfishness and coldness of the black brother, and the bailed uncle’s own way. The early stage will be a little boring,...

      jackie brown

      What impressed me the most was that Jackie told Bao that he was more afraid of his 44-year-old unemployed, no money, and family for the second half of his life (I understand it myself) than mustache. When I came back from shopping in the supermarket, my recent frustration hit again. Hey, how do you live this day? Fortunately, Ma Yun, how else? In this city, I am always reminded that only money can be decent, food, clothing, housing and transportation are just maintaining a decent level, but...

      No one can stand the twittering woman

      At present, Quentin’s film is the least "Quentin". Many people say that it may be the influence of the original script. I don't think so. "Falling Dog" is also a remake, but it is quite brilliant, so it is not the reason for the script. The movie is 145 minutes long. It is about a black stewardess helping an arms criminal. He was found by the police. She used her superb EQ and IQ to deal with the police and the gang, and finally managed to get away with the arms criminal’s money and fly high....

      Quentin is the least well-known and least Quentin's work with the original base. A conventional narrative without too much structure and play, there are still many but full of characterization, endless but solid and interesting dialogues, endless beautiful music and unremitting deconstruction of genre films. Still a cool Quentin...

      I don't like Quentin who is so gentle and calm. Compared with the other films, there are less wanton playful mentality and violence, and more regular plots. Even if there are dense pop music to help, the structure is destined to not give people a vivid and incisive...

    Evaluation action

    This is a film with an original underpinning. Quentin’s respect for the original author makes the plot and dialogue of the film quite satisfactory. It seems that it lacks Quentin’s iconic black humor, fluent dialogue and bloody violence in other works. The scene and the unhurried pace of the film also disappointed Quentin fans who were used to watching "Kill Bill" and "Pulp Fiction." But in terms of shooting techniques, plot...

    Movie quotes

    • Ordell Robbie: Is that what I think it is?

      Jackie Brown: What do you think it is?

      Ordell Robbie: I think it's a gun pressed up against my dick.

      Jackie Brown: Well, you thought right. Now take your hands off from around my throat, nigga.

    • Winston: Look man, there's only three reasons why you can't make your court date. One, you're in a hospital. Two, you're in jail. Three, your ass is dead.

    • Ordell Robbie: This you and me talking, is this like a lawyer-client thing, and you can't repeat nothing I tell you?

      Max Cherry: You're not my client until you get busted and I bond you out.

      Ordell Robbie: Well, if we ain't got no - what's that shit called? - confidentiality, why should I tell you a thing?

      Max Cherry: Because you want me to know what a slick guy you are. You got stewardesses bringing you fifty grand.

      Ordell Robbie: Now why would a stewardess be bringing me fifty grand?

      Max Cherry: Now you want me to speculate on what you do. My guess is you're in the drug business, except the money's moving the wrong way. Whatever you're into, you seem to be getting away with it, so more power to you.
