a fantastic meme
catalyst. made the term "indie film" palatable and marketable,
making the first director to become an actor and an egocentric rock
star at the same time. opening the floodgates for further
decentralization such as _El Mariachi_ and _Blair Witch
Project_. but let's face it, the script was tight, the
convoluted time angles intriguing and the right mix of faces and
dialogue made it great. sure, it was a ripoff of pretty much
everything, but it's the equivalent of Nirvana
in the film industry. - @Om*
JULES - "That's what I've
been sitting here contemplating. First, I'm gonna deliver this
case to Marsellus. Then, basically, I'm gonna walk the earth."
VINCENT - "What do
you mean, walk the earth?"
JULES - "You know,
like Caine in _KUNG FU_. Just walk
from town to town, meet people, get in adventures."
Pulp Fiction (1994)
- Quentin Tarantino
wrote two of the three stories before he wrote _Reservoir
Dogs_ (1992) and _True Romance_ (1993).
- After the success of those films, he decided to
write a third story, intending to
have each segment directed by a different person.
- The parts of "Honey Bunny" and "Pumpkin" were
written specifically for Amanda Plumber and Tim Roth.
- The bandaid on Marsellus Wallace's neck was
there because actor Ving Rhame has a scar there that the makeup people
felt would be too distracting during that scene.
- The book that Vincent reads is _Modesty
Blaise_, by Peter O'Donnell.
- Vince can be seen heading for the bathroom in
the opening scene.
- When Vince and Lance are attempting to give Mia
the adrenalin injection, the board games "Operation" and "Life" are
visible in the background.
- When Butch is approaching his apartment, there
is an advertisment for Jack Rabbit Slims on the radio.
- The marquee where Butch boxes advertises the
following fights: "Coolidge vs. Wilson" and "Vossler vs.
Martinez"'. The first is a reference to the presidential
election contested by Calvin Coolidge and Woodrow Wilson, the
second is a reference to Rand Vossler and Jerry Martinez are two
friends of Tarantino's from when he worked in a video store.
- In _Reservoir Dogs_ (also written and directed
by Tarantino), Nice Guy Eddie refers to a nurse named "Bonnie".
- When Bruce Willis' character Butch goes to
leave the pawn shop after freeing himself, he pauses for a moment- he
can either go to Tennessee and collect his money, or go back to help
Marsellus Wallace. Near to where he pauses are a Tennessee license
plate, and a neon sign for "Killians Red" on a shelf. The only letters
that are still lit spell "Kill ed". We are then shown a shot of Zed's
keyring with the "Z" trinket: we are left with the subliminal message
"Kill Zed", which is exactly what Butch proceeds to do, instead of
going to Tennessee and possibly getting "kill ed".
- All of the clocks in the movie Pulp Fiction are
stuck on 4:20.
- John Travolta plays Vince. Travolta
in real life is a member of Scientology, a
pseudo religion started by an author of pulp fiction, L.
