Forced, Contrived, those words alone cannot even explain how unnatural this film is, the film has no flow at all, it comes off as a bunch of junk put together, I agree with Pauline Kael that it is extremely immature, take the scene where john travolta goes to Eric Stoltz house to buy drugs, we are given a cheap low angle of Eric Stoltz ass, while looking up at travlolta to talk, did Mr. Tarantino hand the camera to a 6 year old?
It is rumored that Stanley Kubrick said that the “dead nigger storage scene” was the worst scene in all Cinema History, and if true then i certainly agree, Tarantino using the N word over and over again did nothing but ruin any chance the movie had of being any good. While writing he must have forgot that Jules and Vincent were Hitman, loaded with guns…in their pants.
An Example of how Contrived the film is, We are given a scene where Christopher Walken explains how important his fathers watch is, 2 scenes later, he loses the watch, the film is so set up for itself that its nauseating.
The Great Directors almost always fill up there frame with great information, that resonates with the story and the audience, what does Tarantino fill the frame with? Eric Stoltz ass. 1 star.
