“Paul Thomas Anderson and Quentin Tarantino are close friends and Anderson believes “Jackie Brown” represents Tarantino at his best. For Anderson, the way Tarantino scripts the relationship between Pam Grier and Robert Forster’s characters elevates “Jackie Brown” to the top of the list of Tarantino’s best movies. “It’s a film so cool and so breezy about middle aged people that feel the clock ticking,” Anderson has said of “Jackie Brown.” “It reduces me to tears. I consider Quentin a peer, but ‘Jackie Brown’ is a watermark for how to shoot and film a scene with delicacy and compassion. A beautiful film, beautifully done.” :: https://www.indiewire.com/gallery/paul-thomas-anderson-favorite-films-movies/jackie-brown-1997-4/
