8) Quentin wanted at the beginning of the film for it to start off with just Pam: mostly to show “the greatness that is Pam” with a great piece of music that explains her: Across 110TH street. As if she’s this invincible, strong, superhuman character. Then as we move on in the film, watching her, she slowly, (as CAMERA moves back subtely* the show where we are) that she is this normal person who works in an airport. Not that great, but that she DOES have a presence about her. Mostly that whole scene was a tribute to Pam Grier and also to set up her character.
