Pulp Fiction 
It's What Happens AROUND the Guns That Matters...
4/4 stars

After the art house success of Reservoir Dogs, writer-director Quentin Tarantino decided to tell another story filled with guns, blood and a blatant disregard for chronology. Interweaving three (originally unrelated) stories into one LA epic, "Pulp Fiction" is a delirious -- and deadly smart -- celebration of everything that's "bad" in movies: hitmen, gambling, criminals, crooked boxers, wayward femme fatales and the worst pawn shop in the history of cinema.

Despite an entire generation of directors who would attempt (and, mostly, fail) to copy Tarantino's chic ultraviolence, the true lasting effect of "Pulp Fiction" on the public consciousness is its dialogue. Tarantino's ear for writing words that work was so impressive, most of the cast agreed to work for scale (aka Hollywood's version of minimum wage) just so they could have a chance to deliver these delicious diatribes.
