Pulp Fiction

This Tarantino’s movie is a very different movie. In the first and last scene the wicked story has it’s culmination. Everything in between is telling two and a half different stories, which all intertwine at some point. The main story is about gangsters (Samuel L. Jackson, John Travolta) who earn their living by driving around LA, shooting people for their boss, doing drugs and quoting bible to their soon-to-be-dead victims. The second story is about a boxer (Bruce Willis) who back-stabbed his boss and is now on a runaway. Until he literally saves his bosses ass and they kiss and make up and he is left alone to retire with his french girlfriend and grandgrandgrandgrandfather’s gold watch, which has seen more asshole than most human beings. And the missing half of a story is a “failed” cafe-robbery when two amateurs try to rob two hard-boiled gangsters. That sooooo ain’t gonna happen..

When I first saw this as a teenager I thought this is the best movie ever with lot’s of violence, off-topic dialogue before action scenes and references to popular culture and music. Well, I still think it is a very good movie, but not the best ever, yet I am still giving it full five stars.

Pulp Fiction, Quentin Tarantino, USA, 1994
