    I don't remember that character.

    Why is that entire episode flipped?

    so youtube doesnt recognize it and delete it.

    Definitely has a lot of allusions to it, i think they're intentional.

    Tarentino does his inspirations justice.

    He's actually one of the few prolific directors who hasnt taken a book, prior film or stageplay and made it into a film.

    Spielberg, Francis Ford Coppolla, Elia Kazan, Peter Jackson, Billy Wilder, Orson Welles, etc., etc.

    So are they more original than Quentin because they expressively take other people's work?

    No, he just changed her from white to black. And her name from Jackie Burke to Jackie Brown. Other than that everything's the same. Had to cut a lot of stuff out of the book, but that's par for the course.
