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.

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…
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.
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…

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…
Yes, I've watched this twice in two days. In my prior review yesterday, I stated that Pulp Fiction wasn't my favorite Tarantino film.
I was wrong.
Everyone has one of those films, one that you constantly fight with. Basically, Pulp Fiction has always been mine. When I first saw it at age 13, I loved it. I really loved it. It was when I was starting to watch film seriously, but after awhile, I almost forgot about it. Recently, I've been watching a lot of Tarantino, and I remembered how I haven't seen Pulp Fiction in so long.
That brings me to my viewing yesterday, which was disappointing because I didn't remember it being as great as when I saw…
La mejor de las películas en la que no sucede nada.
This movie is mandatory viewing for every year.
There is so much to grasp and admire.
#43. This is one of my all time favorite movies, and I believe it's Tarantino's best. If you're on this site and you haven't seen this film, you may just be on the wrong site.
Sin lugar a dudas mi película favorita.
Soundtrack inolvidable, marca el regreso de Travolta a su mejor forma.
Un clásico de los 90's
Is there a "six stars" option?
Have watched this movie in at least one film class each year. Choose different movies, professors.
Recently I was contemplating making a list of my favorite scenes in film, but I decided that instead of just…
