13. Jackie Brown (1997)
Unfolding the worlds of black market gun runners and assassins, ‘Jackie Brown’ is another gold-plated thriller from Quentin Tarantino‘s body of ‘unmatchable’ works. Jackie Brown has a rugged Robert De Niro playing Louis Gara, an ex-convict and a close friend of a gun runner named Ordel Robbie, played by Samuel L. Jackson. In a sequence where Louis and Ordel meet at Ordel’s home, watching clips of women in bikinis explaining new guns in the markets, Tarantino teases the spectators with a foot that covets attention.
Casually entering the sequence is ‘Bridget Fonda’s’ character, Melanie, who happens to be an unambitious surfer living with Ordel. She slouches down on the couch after serving the drinks and teasingly keeps her feet right next to the glass. Consciously or not, she moves her bare feet full of toe rings in a seductive manner at which Louis flashes a glance. The scene is too small for anyone to call it a ‘foot fetish’ manifestation but does have an underlying play that evokes sensual thoughts nonetheless.

1. Knight of Cups (2015)
Probably the most talent-heavy ‘foot–love’ scene, ‘Knight of the Cups’ stars Christian Bale as a comedy writer who lacks direction.
