this movie has a very unique style that set in stone what Tarantino's directing would be like. It uses a unique structure and script that allows the movie to switch main characters smoothly. The way the the story all connect is amazing and the dialogue is perfectly Tarantino.
3.8 stars. I can't relate to people who cite 'Pulp Fiction' as their favourite film... I simply can't imagine it holding that kind of meaning for me. It's entertaining, often really funny and, to a degree, it's intellectually gratifying, but "COOL!" isn't such a powerful emotional response that I'd rank it above all others! But, yeah, it has a pretty killer soundtrack and the cast are all on-point.
The film that brought Godard-isms into mainstream media, this hyper-loquacious quasi-exploitation film was high art when I was younger and ignorant, but, now, after finally stepping into the rich stream of film history, it's roots are REALLY showing...four stars because it's well made, and everyone did their job pitch perfectly...
I feel like I don't love this movie as much as some other people love this movie. It was hollow to me, devoid of depth, meaning, and empathy. And yet, the surfaces pop with such brilliance that it almost makes up for what it lacks. Somehow, it's such a cool film it ends up being one of my favorite movies anyway, despite how shallow it is.
