One of the most influential films of the 1990s, Pulp Fiction is a delirious post-modern mix of neo-noir thrills, pitch-black humor, and pop-culture touchstones.

  • 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.

  • It's hot, it's cool and -- for a movie that sometimes comes at you like a blindsiding fist -- it's unfailingly playful.

  • 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.

    February 16, 2016 | Full Review…
  • 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).

  • Unmissable.

    14/06/2017 A hilariously violent and extremely well written script + a huge cast of top of the line actors combine to make this masterpiece. No more needs to be said, except: If you like your movies Pulp Fiction is a must watch!

    Arguably Tarantino's best film. Pulp Fiction mixes everything into one package perfectly like a royale with cheese!

    There's something to be said about how perfectly Pulp Fiction flows with such a non-linear storyline. Quentin Tarantino had already earned his spurs with Reservoir Dogs, and now decided to take everything to the nines with his sophomore film. The beauty of Pulp Fiction is how the storylines are so well intersected, and yet it begins and ends nearly exactly the same way. Not only is it one of the most important films of the 1990s, but it served as a platform for incredible dialogue, a veritable showcase depicting the bleak yet flashy glamour of 90s' LA, and a scenario of sorts of just what ordinary, and not-so-ordinary people can do when under duress.

    I always find Quentin Tarantinos films hard to review, Well to start off I can say it's nothing that you will have seen before, A great mix of humour and violence, A very strong cast all give a great performance, Very well told short stories that all connect in different ways, Maybe too long but Tarantinos films are unique and need its running time to be told how he wants, Not a film for everyone but if you're into crime/drama then you will love this.
