OK, it was fun watching this and that's all about it. Neither a classic nor an amazing piece of cinematic masterpiece everyone is talking about. It's always funny when two guys pick up guns and use words like "motherfcker", Tarantino didn't invent it.
My problem with "Pulp Fiction" is that I found it to be nowhere nearly as spectacular as I was told it was. There is no real insight here, just stylistic escapades and this would be fine as well, but they don't help much either. There are some fine scenes here and there, however. Overall, I think this is just a fancier popcorn flick, nothing more, nothing less and, yes, the perfect venture for film snobs.
For me the most over-rated film ever. Not sure what's good about this one. But it seems that it is a must to like this one. While Kill Bill is pointless cruelty Pulp Fiction is just meaningless and confused. May be somebody could help me on the plot to deepen my understanding.
removes humanity even further than reservoir dogs, completely detaching human characters from any proceedings (except some forced late game grabs by jules). while never exactly boring, its lack of content beneath the kaleidoscopic irony makes it hard to justify the bloated length. could watch travolta make goofy heroin faces all night long, but unfortunately that's only 20 mins of a 150 minute movie
Mia: Don't you hate that?
Mia: Uncomfortable silences. Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullshit in order to be comfortable?
Vincent: I don't know. That's a good question.
Mia: That's when you know you've found somebody special. When you can just shut the fuck up for a minute and comfortably enjoy the silence.
