Pulp Fiction in my opinion is one of the best movies made. It crosses so many Genre’s and has some of the most potent, sarcastic and eclectic dialogue of any movie I have seen.
It’s the kind of movie that holds up after even ten or fifteen viewings!
It has an incredible mix of humor and violence and the storyline is non-linear and still makes great sense.
There are so many excellent and intense characters in this movie, basically centered around and in Los Angeles.
Different critics have different views as to what genre this film is. Some critics consider it a “Black Comedy”, some call it “Neo-Noir” and then some call it more “gangland camp.”
Whatever the genre, Pulp Fiction was an amazing breakthrough in independent cinema, breathing new life into that genre and convincing producers and studio heads alike that this kind of film can make money and makes sense to back them.
There is so much Pulp Fiction Memorabilia generated since the film was released anyone who collects it, will find a great assortment of memorabilia.
I love the entire film but one part stands out above the rest. It is the scene that is so hard to watch but is one of the most potent scenes I have ever seen in a movie. It is when Marcellus and Bruce Willis’s character come charging into the pawn shop fighting with each other. The events that take place after that, the visual of both of them strapped to a chair with a leather bound strap with an apple in the middle fitting into their mouths in eerie yet visual masterpiece.
Once you’ve seen that and the events that follow I don’t think one can ever get those images out of their minds.
