No. 3: Killing Melanie – Quentin Tarantino’s Boldest Moments

Melanie
Miramax

‘Jackie Brown’ is more focused on romance and age and money schemes than rampant violence, but when it gets to killing characters, it’s certainly not shy. Most of the film’s big deaths come as a bit of a shock, but none more so than Louis’ sudden gunning down of a nagging Melanie in a shopping mall parking lot. The moment makes clear Robert De Niro’s dimwitted ex-con’s willingness to kill, and illustrates the life or death stakes surrounding Jackie’s plot. And, as with lots of Tarantino’s sudden spurts of violence, it’s also kind of uncomfortably funny.
