Sheba, Baby

Sheba, Baby ★★½

Everyone makes noise and video essays that Tarantino lifted a section of City on Fire for Reservoir Dogs, but no one is talking about how the ending of this film was directly lifted by Tarantino for the ending of Jackie Brown (and by ending I mean after the climax, the character ending), and that ain’t a judgement as I think Tarantino nailed the ending much better in his film. Seeing Sheba, Baby’s ending for the first time while intimately knowing Jackie Brown’s ending gave me the same wild uncanny valley feeling as when I watched 1969’s Traumnovelle after spending a decade gluttonizing on the glory of Eyes Wide Shut.
