RARA-AVIS: Two movies

Saw two movies this weekend that are on-topic for the list. The first was Laura, the classic noir movie. I had read the book a long time ago and thought it was mediocre. The movie was a notch above the book. A lot of it was stereotypic noir, with darkness and shadow accented by harsh lighting. There was some sharp dialogue. Not a bad movie.

The second was Jackie Brown, a Tarentino adaptation of Leonard's RUM PUNCH. It was about the worst I've seen from him, which means it was still pretty good. There were plot holes big enough to drive a Hummer through.
