With a sprawling cast, whip-smart script, and stylish visual aesthetic, it's no surprise that Pulp Fiction helped redefine a genre of films that would follow the movie's 1994 release. There are a million stories in the City of Angels, and the craziest seem to revolve around John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson’s deadpan-deadly duo of contract killers, who wax philosophical in between pulling jobs for crime kingpin Marsellus Wallace (Ving Rhames). Along the way there’s Uma Thurman as a coke-sniffing gangster’s moll; Bruce Willis as a prizefighter having a really, really bad day; and a lovey-dovey pair of bandits (Tim Roth and Amanda Plummer) who pick the wrong diner to hold up. Quentin Tarantino’s ingeniously plotted instant classic crackles with spot-the-reference pop-culture allusions and a retro-cool soundtrack. Pulp Fiction is as iconic as cinema gets, and Tarantino's exhilarating dialogue and surprising script deliver equal parts thrills and laughter for audiences to slurp down like a $5 milkshake. (USA, 1994, 154 min., Color, DCP)
