Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction is in his genre, crime, a real masterpiece. The movie tells us four stories. Each story is quite simple and not that hard to follow. But the storyline is nonlinear, what makes the movie so intriguing. Even though the different stories are told non-chronological through each other, the movie makes an organized and clear impression. There’s also a lot of violence in Pulp Fiction, but most of it is off-screen. You can really see the typical characteristics that Tarantino’s films have, like a trunk, barefoot, and triangle shot. The dialogues are rude but at the same time humoristic. The Oscar for Best Writing is worth it.
The script was written in a Coffee shop and hotel room in Amsterdam. Therefore, the movie has references to Amsterdam, like when Vincent Vega and Jules Winnfield are in the car talking about smoking a joint in Amsterdam. Because Tarantino used to work in a video rental store before he became successful, there are also references to other movies in Pulp Fiction. All those little details makes it such a genius movie.
So, if you haven’t seen Pulp Fiction -the most influential American movie of the 90’s- yet, you better be watching it soon.
