It's hot, it's cool and -- for a movie that sometimes comes at you like a blindsiding fist -- it's unfailingly playful.
October 7, 2016
It's full of perfect Tarantino moments, with meta references, B-movie sleaze and a sheer sense of fun.

Though Pulp Fiction is only Tarantino's second film as writer-director, he creates his own world as confidently and recognisably as Harold Pinter or Joe Orton does or did.
September 22, 2015
It resurrects John Travolta from "Look Who's Talking" hell, it makes Bruce Willis into a serious actor and it honors the power and fancy of intelligent dialogue (written by the director himself).

This movie gets its charge not from action pyrotechnics but from its electric barrage of language, wisecracks and dialogue, from the mordant '70s classicism of its long-take camera style and its smart, offbeat, strangely sexy cast.

Tarantino has fashioned the film as an ironic commentary on the themes of contingency and redemption - bedrocks of more conventionally prototypical Hollywood fare.
May 29, 2019
As much pop as pulp, this is exhilarating stuff and clearly one of the best films of the 1990s.
May 29, 2019
This movie boasts groundbreaking direction, cinematography, screenwriting, soundtrack, and extraordinary performances (particularly by Thurman, Travolta, and Jackson).
May 29, 2019
Even at its most mindless this is essential stuff.

There's not much to add about Tarantino's magnum opus, so popular over the years and buoyed by dialogue so sharp and witty it'll be quoted with glee by the grandchildren of millennials.

Pulp Fiction is condemned to be a hit. [Full Review in Spanish]

Pacey, punchy and at times hilarious. It's quite a movie.
April 24, 2019
What is unusual is that a director with such visual flair should be so interested in words. Tarantino offers actors the kind of dialogue -- and monologue -- usually found only in theatre.

Reservoir Dogs still looks like the great American film of the decade, but Quentin Tarantino's second film as writer-director shows him already deep in the territory of self-parody.
April 24, 2019
I was looking forward to this like you wouldn't believe... but it all goes on for so long and it's not terribly witty.
April 24, 2019
I can't think of another filmmaker in America who disturbs me this way. But I know full well that that's his point. It's because he's on to something. He has put some things together that I don't think should be put together.

Soon enough you come down off its high, with that druggie feeling of your bones being hollow and your skin encrusted with dirt; but you can't deny that the movie delivers... or that it somehow elevates craft and cleverness to the level of art.

These days a genuine movie surprise is so rare that it feels like a gift.

Tarantino changed cinema. It's a fact that's as simple as the movie he achieved that with. Pulp Fiction is perfect storytelling. [Full review in Spanish].
