The Crime Is Up Podcast showcases the best in hard-boiled, criminal tales. Each episode brings you brand new crime fiction stories as read by a talented cast of actors. And it’s a hybrid podcast! The second part features your hosts, good buddies Chris and Will, ruminating about film noir classics, underappreciated crime films, or pulp novels they love. And all the while they do it with wit and humor and charm and terrible jokes and all the characteristics you could possibly hope for in two podcast hosts.
No one knows how it’s goin down, except for maybe Jackie Brown… and Crime Is Up Podcast! We’re talking about Quentin Tarantino’s 3rd film, which simultaneously gives Pam Grier & Robert Forster their due in one of the most honest love stories of the 90’s. That’s not to say there isn’t violence, there is. And there’s blood and swearing and criminals doing nefarious things. But at its heart, this is a romance.
And it’s unique in Tarantino’s filmography because it’s his only adaptation. So we examine how and why Tarantino decided to follow up the mega hit of Pulp Fiction with this faithful adaptation of Elmore Leonard’s novel Rum Punch. We’ve got plenty to say about the book itself, as well as the incredibly stacked cast of the movie: Samuel L. Jackson, Robert De Niro, Bridget Fonda, Chris Tucker & Michael Keaton!
