Accept No Substitutes

To borrow a line from one of his films: Quentin Tarantino, when you absolutely, positively got to see everyone in a movie get killed. Accept no substitutes. OK, not everyone, but almost everyone. When Tarantino began to garner fame for writing and directing movies, Pulp Fiction probably became the title most associated with his name, and the film overshadowed many of his other ’90s classics. Perhaps due to plots saturated with violence and obscene language that often hide the wittier dialogue, motifs and symbols of his films, much of Tarantino’s work favors the specific tastes of his loyal and cultish fans. But whether you’re a regular at the Quentin Tarantino Film Festival (that’s QT-Fest for you fans), or are looking for something new to see, the Inwood Theatre keeps the reel running through midnight, for a special showing of Jackie Brown, a film adapted and directed by Tarantino that tells the story of Jackie (Pam Grier), a flight attendant who betrays her gun-smuggling boss, Ordell Robbie (Samuel L. Jackson) with the help of a local bail bondsman. Jackie Brown begins at midnight Friday and Saturday at the Inwood Theatre, 5458 W. Lovers Lane. Tickets are $10, $7 for students and those over the age of 65. Call 214-764-9106 or visit for more information.
