Hey have you watched this?: Pulp Fiction
Plot: Multiple stories in Los Angeles resolve around a boxer, two hit men, a security guard, some bank robbers and others.
Why you should watch this: Even if you haven’t seen Pulp Fiction, you’ve felt it’s touch. It was so ground breaking that it is still being copied today. Not only that but it had star making turns for Quentin Tarantino, Samuel L. Jackson and John Travolta, (although Travolta couldn’t keep it up.)
Watching it again in the theater you see why. The film is so different, even now, that it feels like a breath of fresh air. I was constantly thinking of what the first audiences must have thought. How weird and brilliant it must have been.
Really what makes the movie work is the characters. Jackson’s Jules and Travolta’s Vincent have such great chemistry that you forget how little screen time they have together. Watching their scenes, you realize why there have been so many copy cats. They work brilliantly together and it’s awesome to see them. Bruce Willis shows up to deliver a great segment and the film is so filled with great performances that you forget that Uma Thurman and Christopher Walken are in it.
I think you should watch this film because it’s the perfect example of what independent movie should be. Everything from the characters to the look to the story structure are so far from the main stream that it’s amazing this worked at all. Watch this now!
