Pulp Fiction

Sunday, Jul 14 at 5:30 pm

Location: Redstone Theater

Dir. Quentin Tarantino. 1994, 155 mins. DCP. With John Travolta, Uma Thurman, Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Willis, Ving Rhames, Amanda Plummer, Tim Roth. Tarantino became a household name with his culture-leveling surprise blockbuster, a film of elaborately intertwining stories that all but rewrote the rules of American narrative filmmaking. As loquacious hit men Vincent and Jules, Travolta and Jackson embodied characters who became almost instantly identifiable, yet nearly every detail of Tarantino’s astonishingly realized world still stands out: Travolta’s dance-floor duet with Thurman’s gangster’s wife to Chuck Berry’s “You Never Can Tell; the escalating, nightmarish scenario of Willis’s crooked boxer Butch; Plummer and Roth’s small-time hoods robbing a diner at just the wrong time. Moving to its own eccentric internal rhythms and coursing on the excitingly unpredictable energy of Andrzej Sekula’s cinematography and Sally Menke’s editing, Pulp Fiction is the definitive film of its era, earning Tarantino a screenplay Oscar and igniting a career that remains essential to the landscape of American auteur cinema.
