Pulp Fiction (1994)

Reviewed on 2011 January 20

This is the first Tarantino film that I ever saw, it’s my personal favorite, and is the most quote-worthy in my opinion. This is a non-linear, interwoven storyline featuring thugs, a gimp, a gangster who allegedly threw someone out a window like they were old produce, and a watch that survived Christopher Walken’s…well…

Jules Winnfield (Samuel L. Jackson) and Vincent Vega (John Travolta) are a couple of gangsters in Marsellus Wallace’s (Ving Rhames) stable. A couple of wannabes have a mysterious briefcase that belongs to Marsellus and he dispatches Jules and Vince to go get it. In the meantime there’s a boxer (Bruce Willis) that Marsellus thinks needs to be taught a lesson, Marsellus’s crazy bride Mia (Uma Thurman) who Vince needs to babysit for a night, and lots of other characters that seem like they’re from some fractured versions of a ’30s dime novel.

I love the fact that you can discuss it to this day. Everyone has a favorite sequence — mine is the Wolf in action — and there are pages of talk about what was really in that briefcase. A winning script plus brilliant acting make this a classic. A great Friday night movie, no matter how many times you may have seen it.
