31- #DLMChallenge “Get Shorty”

For #31 of the #DLMChallenge #365moviesin365days on March 20th I watched: Get Shorty.

I’ve heard about this film for so many years, I figured it was high time to check it out.

This movie made me feel awkward– Like I missed it in the 90s and now it’s dated and out of place. But that’s not to say it isn’t a great film, in fact it most certainly is.

I’m not familiar in the least with the works of Elmore Leonard, but this film truly compels me to dig in.

Now I excitedly await Be Cool and Jackie Brown. Yes, I am aware that Be Cool is not nearly as… Cool.

The Main Crew:

Cinematographer: Donald Peterman (Men in Black, Cocoon)

Based on a Novel by: Elmore Leonard (Rum Punch [Novel basis for Jackie Brown, Fire in the Hole [Basis for Justified])
