Just because you are a character doesn't mean you have character.
A burger-loving hit man, his philosophical partner, a drug-addled gangster's moll and a washed-up boxer converge in this sprawling, comedic crime caper. Their adventures unfurl in three stories that ingeniously trip back and forth in time.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
The Wolf is the shepherd.
"Blessed is he who in the name of charity and good will shepherds the weak through the Valley of Darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children."
When Jules and Vincent need to get off the road, what does Jules say: "This is the Valley, Vincent. Marcellus ain't got no friendly places in the Valley." They were in the valley of darkness. They needed someone to help them out. "If Jimmy's ass ain't home, I don't know what we're going to do." They were hoping Jimmy would be their brother's keeper. Of course, what was the first thing Jimmy told them: "Storing dead n$%$#*( ain't my business." If he…
It’s all about the dialogue! This is the most quotable film ever for me and my absolute favorite from Quentin Tarantino. Pulp Fiction perfectly works as a mix of different genres and you can totally feel the director’s love for cinema with so many film references that just mesh very well altogether. The writing is truly brilliant as the characters are all given a lot of care and are quite memorable whether they have big or small roles. Also, this film is really original in the sense that it manages to alternate all the different story arcs in an engaging manner, being constantly surprising and making the viewer relate to the characters to some degree. I can usually pick a…
Fucking perfect from beginning to end. Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction is more than just a film, but a bona-fide landmark in cinematic history. The delirious, introspective, funny, and captivating set of characters are unhinged from any sense of convention, moving through the landscape of Tarantino's sunny little universe with wicked brutality and gorgeous fluidity. Every needle drop of groovy tunes, quick pan of the camera, and quick scrambling of the kaleidoscopic narrative all comes together in a masterpiece of profound audaciousness and sun-soaked perversity. The passion and the vibrant beauty radiates from the screen like the golden glow from Marsellus' briefcase.
Tarantino's ultimate achievement and one that will continue to age like a fine wine.
From the very first words uttered you know you're watching something special. In Reservoir Dogs, Tarantino already showed signs of his unique skill at writing dialogue. In Pulp Fiction he perfects it.
When this came out in Holland, it became mostly known for two things. Firstly the fact that Travolta was playing a role he had never played before and secondly the fact that Tarantino made some great and unbelievably accurate cultural observations about Holland. Both were completely true of course, but that is not what blew me away.
This was my first Tarantino and will always be my favourite. I was completely taken by his prose. There is practically no line of text, no piece of dialogue uttered in…
bad storms here
sunny day here.
nice except temps
yeah, but it's getting cooler
well then that is nice
nothing i can think of-daddy is watching pulp fiction on a channel that bleaps everything
more confusing if that is possible

i mean, why bother?
i love it.
i agree which is what i said
"let's show graphic porn on network tv and just blur the bad parts!"
is what will happen next
well at least we…
This is the ultimate film homage.
I honestly can't see how anyone wouldn't like this film. Even if you don't love it, you have to like something about it. The honest dialogue, the hilarity of it all, the thrill of it all, the awesome performances, the engaging characters, the compelling and thought provoking story, that fucking briefcase...
I swear, I don't think there is a single person on the planet who uttered the phrase "I didn't like Pulp Fiction" just like how no one has ever said "I don't know what's in that fucking briefcase." We all know by now. It's pretty obvious isn't it?
Still Quentin Tarantino's masterpiece to date.
A true masterpiece film
A movie that certainly lives up to the hype, with witty dialogue, interesting characters, a kickin' soundtrack, and brutal violence.
Every line my man Sam Jackson says is pure gold here. This is probably the film I quote the most in everyday life; whether that sentiment suffices as a technical review of the film is a different question, but what (not saying what again) I guess I'm trying to say is that this film goes well above and beyond what is expected in terms of clever, memorable dialogue and is just enjoyable to watch at the highest degree.
Quentin Tarantinos shining jewel. A great film.
Oh. My. God. I feel exhilarated in a way I rarely feel...
I kinda don't know what to say about Pulp Fiction that hasn't already been said? It's certainly Tarantino's biggest masterwork (Reservoir Dogs close behind) and is probably the most intellectually badass film ever produced, and it lives on as one of the greatest movies ever made - a title it very much deserves.
A perfect movie? Hmm. Maybe.
EDIT: After reading some more Letterboxd reviews for Pulp Fiction, I have a few things I can pinpoint my fascination for this movie on. Quentin Tarantino has an unprecedented and perfected skill at writing dialogue in which every line is completely captivating. Nothing any of the characters ever say is…
Favorite of all time!
Check out the big brain on Brett! You a smart mothafucka, that's right!
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
