I found an error in Pulp Fiction...

Post by Navajas » Sun Dec 31, 2006 6:08 pm

When Mia Wallace goes to the bathroom in Jack Rabbit's Slims to powder her nose... After she returns to the table she seems excited that her food arrived and starts eating instantly like shes hungry! Cocaine suppresses appetite and the way she was snorting lines every couple of minutes Im pretty sure she cant eat a hamburger! Another scene is when Vincent shoots Heroin while driving a car... That impossible... However in this case I always thought that Vincent only tripped about driving the car and that he was at the dealers house, flying with his thoughts imagining that he was driving... Cause he asked him if he could shoot up in his house, then suddenly the movie jumps to the car scene...

1. Mia only takes one bite and sip of her shake. She doesnt eat like a pig.
2. Vincent shot up at Lances house. He asks Lance "Mind if I shoot up here?". There is no solid time frame there. He may have stayed an half hour or an hour before he went to pick up Mia in his car.
3. Its a movie, not reality (ex: look at the size of the IV needle!). There is a thing called suspension of disbelief when watching films.

Exactly, and after that bite, she lights up a cigarette instead (if I remember this correctly). Now, that doesn´t sound like a hungry person to me. Anyway, who cares? It´s not like it´s reality. It´s a MOVIE.

Some coke heads have to do a line so they can eat. If they are a real coke head they will get sick if they don't do a bump from time to time.

ok for the weird jump from Lance's place to the car, there's the same thing in Easy Rider
from "scene A" to "scene B", it looks like
AAAABABABABABBBBBB
get it?

The heroin scene is just like the pool scene in The Graduate - it is a long period of time that is shown as a synopsis in a short scene - Have you ever snorted coke?  It affects everyone differently.

And the fact that Jules and Vincent survived gunshots didn't occur to you? And the fact that the shots were already there on the wall before the guy used the gun? I mean what is up with that??!?

The insert shots that you're talking about, with the spoon, the needle, etc. All of that happens in Lance's house. He drives his Malibu afterwards. mmmkaay

hahahahaha when i first saw this movie i was about 6 or 7 and i always thought vincent was shotting up in the car too. But now that i am a bit older and have seen the movie a lot more times i can claerly tell that he is shooting up at lances. but it misleads you to believe that he shooting up in the car because the camera only focues on his ands and the needle, the rest is dark. Then it keeps on flashin to vincent in the car and he looks all fucked up. I think tarantino did this to shiw us the effects of his actions while he was doing them.

NO.  He shoots up at Lance's - but the scene takes place in the car where he is stoned out of his gourd - having recollections of shooting up at Lance's - the scene is supposed to relate the viewer to the confusion and loss of reality that the drug causes - kind of like the scene of The Graduate where Dustin Hoffman is laying out by the pool - it seems like it takes place in one afternoon but it is actually the duration of an entire summer - it is an old technique.

Funny, I've never thought this. But I could see where one may get confused.

I always thought that the most obvious error in Pulp Fiction was when Vincent tells Jules he doesn't watch TV, but talks to Lance about Cops. But, that was probably intentional...just to show how stupid Vincent was. (<off topic)

But, yeah...the "Vincent gets high" montage might be misleading that way. It almost makes it look like someone's in the passenger seat helping him.

The "I don't watch TV" was sarcasim, meaning he rarely watches it and he tells jules about cops.

the bullets in the wall b4 they get shot

The hunger point makes no sense, that is not an error. With the heroin thing you've got me for a moment. Then I watched the scene itself and got it cleared out. It's pretty simple. Here, I'll draw it out for you:

-Mind if I shoot up here ? / Hey, mi casa su casa. / Muchas gracias
-close up shot Vince opening heroinbag (although black background probably at Lance's place)
-Vince tripping (in his car while driving to Mia)
-Vince preparing needle (at Lance's)
-Vince tripping (in his car while driving to Mia)
-Vince preparing heroin with a spoon and a lighter (at Lance's)
-Vince tripping (in his car while driving to Mia)
-Vince putting the needle in his arm (at Lance's)
-Vince tripping (in his car while driving to Mia)
-Vince arriving at Mia's

Get it ?

There is also an error when Jules is in the apartment he calls Brad Bret. No big deal no need to devote a thread to it....ohhh I hope I just didn't ruin that for someone ;)
