    * Increased absurdity level and some deadpan delivery allow to execute surprising twists. You are always on guard that the film might go in a completely different direction at a moment’s notice.

    * As with “Thunder Road”, writer/director Jim Cummings gives new angle to father-daughter dynamics we usually see in this kind of genre.

    * Liked cross-editing scenes for comedic effect and raised tempo.

    * Liked werewolf as a metaphor for alcoholism. Reminded me of "The Shining".

    * “The most annoying man” is the role Sander was born to play. Similarly to “Curb Your Enthusiasm”, Safdie brothers also apply the Jewish concept of “learning through suffering”.

    * Should be watched with camomile tea to ease the tension. Safdie brothers give the film relentless drive. Every scene is cause and effect.

    * Cosmic Vangelis-esque (“Blade Runner”) score by Daniel Lopatin gives the film almost serendipitous feeling.

    * With all that Safdie brothers manage to stay very grounded to reality. The story is based on their own father’s experience in the  Diamond  District in New York.

    Mummy and Alien walk into a bar. And the barman says: "Fuck off".

    I've seen "Pulp Fiction" a bunch of times. On different screens. But I have never seen it on the beach, in 35mm, in Cannes, with Tarantino, Thurman, Travolta, Harvey Weinstein attending. If there is a definitive way how to watch "Pulp Fiction", this must be it.
