Outrageously violent, time-twisting, and in love with language, Pulp Fiction is widely considered to be one of the most influential American movies of the 1990s.
Director and co-screenwriter Quentin Tarantino synthesised such seemingly disparate traditions as the syncopated language of David Mamet; the serious violence of American gangster movies, crime movies, and films noirs mixed up with the wacky violence of cartoons, video games, and Japanese animation; and the fragmented storytelling structures of such experimental classics as Citizen Kane, Rashomon, and La jetée.
The Oscar-winning script by Tarantino and Roger Avary intertwines three stories, featuring Samuel L Jackson and John Travolta, in the role that single-handedly reignited his career, as hit men who have philosophical interchanges on such topics as the French names for American fast food products; Bruce Willis as a boxer straight out of a 1940s B-movie; and such other stalwarts as Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth, Christopher Walken, Eric Stoltz, Ving Rhames, and Uma Thurman, whose dance sequence with Travolta proved an instant classic.
