Pulp Fiction is an unapologetic story which has multiple sub-plots that are influenced by, or revolve around a Los Angeles crime lord Marsellus Wallace (Ving Rhames). The mini sub-plots involve two hit men, Marsellus Wallace’s wife Mia, an aging boxer, and a pair of lovebird thieves, which all brilliantly come together to tell one story in non-linear fashion. In my opinion, the stars were shining bright, the moons were properly aligned and time stood still for Quentin Tarintino wrote and directed Pulp Fiction, one of the greatest movies ever developed on Kodak film. Samuel L Jackson, is not a great actor in my opinion, but his performance as the hit man Jules Winnfield, explodes in this film and was so brilliant that 10 horrible movies later, Jackson is still reaping the benefits by receiving 20 million dollar contracts in the mere hope that he will muster half the performance he displayed in Pulp Fiction. This is the kind of movie that comes once every 20 years, because unlike the hundreds of millions of dollars it takes to make a Titanic or a Lord of the Rings, Pulp Fiction only needed a directing genius, slick and well timed editing, actors digging deep to revive their lost careers, and the coolest compilation of music you would ever hear in a single film. If you watch Pulp Fiction and you don’t like it, watch it again. If you still don’t like it, watch it again. After watching it three times you still don’t like it, go rent “Bad Boys II” or something because you know nothing about good film making. Ok I’m just kidding. Ok, no I’m not.
