Why do you like Pulp Fiction ?

Post by quentin2304 » Wed Oct 11, 2017 4:57 pm

Hello everybody,
I wondered why people like so much the movie ? Why this film is mythical ? Why we are talking about it today ?

Is it for the actors ? Theories (briefcase...) ? Tarantino ? Other ?

Don't hesitate to answer me, I'm curious to see what U are going to say !

Hi man

welcome to the forum.

I think there is a myriad of reasons, but let me just name two that I think are the most pertinent from today's perspective:

1. When it came out, everything about it was quite fresh, the non-chronological narrative, the cool gangsters, the episodic structure, the soundtrack, the bursts of violence. In that specific mix, it was unlike anything people had witnessed before

2. I think it's a "hang out" movie, the way Quentin describes these himself: as an audience, you find these characters so three-dimensional, you'd like to hang out with them, spend time with them, and you actually do. The film is quite long so by the end you've been through two or so days in the lives of them and oh boy what two days those have been. It's wild, even though a lot of what actually happened (e.g. the boxing match) you never get to actually see....
