Great choice! I haven't seen the actual film, I first heard this track (like most people I guess) on the end credits of Jackie Brown.Do you recommend the movie?
Hmm, I haven't seen the movie either, but I think I remember the song was featured in both Jackie Brown and American Gangster.
Man, Pam Grier singing that song at end of JACKIE BROWN was the last great moment Tarantino put on film.
Sorry for the late reply, everyone. Having a full time job fucks with your ability to respond quickly to comments. You should definitely watch Across 110th St. Probably because of its soundtrack, this movie is often lumped in with other movies in the blaxploitation genre, but it is really much more than that (not to denigrate blaxploitation. I fucking love those flicks). It is really a great example of gritty 70s cop movies, much in the vein of The French Connection, Serpico or the Seven Ups. Best of all, it stars Anthony Quinn and Yaphet fucking Kotto.By the way, ditto on the Tarantino comment. It is interesting that the only movie of his directly based on another work also feels the most mature and self assured.
