QUENTIN TARANTINO MOVIE POSTER
PULP FICTION, 1994
Movie Reviews

Directed by Quentin Tarantino
Starring: John Travolta, Bruce Willis, Samuel J. Jackson, Uma Thurman, Harvey Kietel
Review by Sergei Petrov



SYNOPSIS:

The lives of two mob hit men, a boxer, a gangster's wife, and a pair of diner bandits intertwine in four tales of violence and redemption

REVIEW:

The film opens in a coffee chop where two robbers, Honey Bunny and Pumpkin, come up with the plan to rob this coffee shop now. We are then introduced to two hit-men, Jules Winnfield and Vincent Vega, who go from mission to mission throughout the film, as their boss, Marsellus Wallace, gives them commands on who to go after next, one of the main missions being is to recover a suitcase.

A boxer, Butch Coolidge, has to split the town as Marsellus Wallace and his hit men are after him for killing his opponent in the ring when he was supposed to through in the fight to lose.A compilation of wearied sequence of events brings and intertwines all of the story lines together.

Pulp Fiction Ė A film in Dialogue

A wacky and at times bizarre series of events makes this film far from being good. Even a wonderfully written script by Quentin Tarantino, and another directorial hit after Reservoir Dogs, as well as great acting from all members of the cast, couldnít help to make this film all it could be. An astonishing amount of thought and detail that was put into creating this film overall missed the big picture of making this movie interesting.

The film starts out with a somewhat intriguing conversation between Honey Bonny and Pumpkin, played by Amanda Plummer and Tim Roth, who decide to rob the coffee shop they are sitting in. As they pull out their guns we are transported to another story line, leaving their comeback until almost the end of the film.

John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson give wonderful performances as two hit men named, Vincent Vega and Jules Winnfield. They deliver their dialogue in a superb way throughout the film. Not to give away an already complicated story, it will just be said that Vincent and Jules run into unfortunate situations during each of their missions that they are sent on by their boss Marsellus Wallace, played by Ving Rhames.

Marsellus, a well known and very much feared mob boss, sends out his men to recover his stolen suitcase as well as an aging boxer Butch Coolidge, played by Bruce Willis, who has just won a boxing match even though Marsellus told him to lose it. Butch and his girl Fabienne, played by Maria de Medeiros, are then forced into hiding and decide to split town. Right before their departure Butch realizes that Fabienne has forgotten his grandfatherís golden watch which he has to go get, running back towards what he was running away from, and much more.

A short but very unique performance by Uma Thurman, who plays Mia Wallace, (Marsellusí wife) should not go unnoticed under any circumstances. Elegant and intriguing as in most of her films, Uma conveys an image of a lost, confused and spoiled woman who might have gotten married for all the wrong reasonsÖor under some sketchy circumstances, that are not revealed during the film. Her brilliant performance brings a very special touch to the film, making it one of the best highlights in the whole movie.

A lot could be said about this very much arguably master piece. A play by play of it is unnecessary, and itís all up to the viewers to either get it or not, as its one of those few films that you either love or you hate. There shall be no middle. This is a must see picture, and the reasons being is to know whatís all the fuss about, and view the work of Mr. Tarantino at its infancy, but questionably one of his most memorable, must see and best works. Thatís not to say that itís a great film.

The main reason this film stood out for so long as a somewhat modern classic could have, is because of the incredible dialogue. To get the film you really have to listen close and pay attention to every word and movement of the mouth. Its talk, talk, talk, and uncanny interactions of human kind in the craziest way possible, with the most madcap characters you would never meet in your life.

But once again the splendid lines do not compensate for the lack of story, action and overall film, not living up to its full potential and hype.
