Pulp Fiction 
Pulp Fiction review
4/4 stars

One of the funniest and uniquely written dark comedies I’ve seen. It is amazing that the stories of a dignified boxer, a Bonnie/Clyde like couple, a crime boss, 2 humorous hitmen and a girl who likes to have fun can be interwoven. A glamorous cast consisting of John Travolta (Vincent Vega), Samuel L. Jackson (Jules Winnfield ), Bruce Willis (Butch Coolidge), Harvey Keitel (Winston Wolf), Uma Thurman (Mia Wallace), Christopher Walken (Captain Koons), Rosanna Arquette (Jody) and many more. The picture had a killer soundtrack and style of chronology that has never been done before. It boasted witty dialogues blurted by memorable characters. What makes this groundbreaking indie film special? Other than the casting, screenplay, various themes, the set pieces, costume, it’s the directing. Quentin Tarantino makes the characters likeable with certain shots throughout the film.

A biblical passage shared by Jules “The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who in the name of charity and goodwill shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee” from Ezekiel 25:17 kind of sums up the totality of Pulp Fiction. The “Pumpkin” and “Honey Bunny” situation shows the selfishness of their acts. The Gold Watch scene where Butch saves Marsellus (though he can easily leave him behind being raped) was an act of charity and good will. Vengeance and anger was shown by Jules and Vincent, in the end, the valley of darkness turned to light. This occurred when Jules reflects his life and lets the couple go with the cash. Themes like friendship, a “higher being,” fate, determination, relationships, coke addiction, effects of drugs, and loyalty makes the film one of the distinct classic films of the 90’s.
