"Pulp Fiction" Movie Review Essay & Film Analysis

It just so happened that synonymous to the name Quentin Tarantino is a picture of «Pulp Fiction», released in 1994. The film, whose budget was very modest $ 8 million, has not only become one of the most lucrative in the history of world cinema, but also gave its creator first "Oscar", as well as an absolute triumph at the Cannes festival, where "Pulp Fiction" won the Palme branch. However, no award can not be compared with manic popularity Tarantino picture of the audience of all generations. In fact, "Pulp Fiction" became a symbol of the modern gangster cinema, catching the baton from the ingenious retro-drama "The Godfather". However, these pictures even nothing to compare - each of them is good in its own way, because they were taken in a completely opposite styles, though still tell of ancestral problems of American gangsterism. So before removing it a cult drama "Reservoir Dogs", Tarantino got carte blanche to create their next film. With young producers were willing to work not only beginners, but also the first Hollywood stars led by the Bruce Willis . Also in the movie "Pulp Fiction" in the background, not disdained to appear and such character actors as Christopher Walken and Harvey Keitel , which are the representatives of the older generation of Hollywood stars and adorn their professionalism any picture. However, all the glory of the cast was almost forgotten at the time of shooting pictures John Travolta , whose successful career 70-80s came to naught. His hero, Vincent Vega, an accomplice of crime boss, to be so vivid and memorable that ever entered into the pantheon of the best characters in American cinema. But would not be returning thank Travolta is so powerful, if not the duet with the then little-known Samuel L. Jackson , which is embodied partner Travolta, Jules Winfield, whose philosophical reasoning during violent crimes forever become classics and dismantled for quotes.
So, the plot of the film Quentin Tarantino's structure is not quite standard. Nominally we are six chapters of the narrative, which at some point bound together. But only three chapters received from the director's own name, the others are integral components of the project, but with broader aspects that do not fit into the framework of a novel. the first chapter of the film can be roughly described as "robbery." Here we meet an old friend of Tarantino, Tim Roth as a small robber Ringo, who along with his girlfriend is about to get ready to take over the small family cafe where lunch. The second chapter introduces us to the already mentioned Vincent and Jules, who is nominally considered the main characters of the film, and go to the next "aggressive negotiations" with small speculators, who dared to rob the toughest criminal Los Angeles boss, Marsellus Wallace by Wing Reymza . The third chapter , as well as two follow-up, received brand names of Tarantino's "Vincent Vega and Marsellus Wallace's wife." In this part of the hero of John Travolta will entertain the wife of his boss, a young and charming Mia by Uma Thurman . In the program are not ordinary dances in a charming retro-bar conversations on a variety of topics and stringent consequences of drug use, is poured into one of the worst nights in the life of Vincent Vega. The fourth chapter was called "Gold watches" and tells the story of the boxer Butch (Willis), the best years of which have long gone, the opportunity to earn good money is - crime boss Wallace offers the hero of money a guaranteed loss in the next battle. However, the old dog decides to do everything on his own and, naturally, holds in its fight, then hastily hiding from gangsters embittered. But what does a gold watch, you will learn while watching novellas. The fifth chapter , «The situation with Bonnie" again brings us back to Vincent and Jules, who inadvertently killed in his car guy, but in order to hide the traces at the time of stop at a modest and other harmless Jules, Jimmy (Quentin Tarantino himself). But since he is clearly not involved in the world of crime, then his wife, Bonnie, who is about to come in from work, will be very unhappy to see in his house two people in the face of blood and the car with a corpse in the garage. Therefore Vincent through the boss is the best specialist to address, Mr. Wolfe (Keitel), who with the help of Nordic calm careless heroes and save the hapless Jimmy marriage. The sixth chapter , as well as the introduction, can be described as "robbery." We meet again the good old robber Ringo. Only here the story gets an unexpected continuation, when it turns out that in a cafe having lunch as Vincent and Jules
«Pulp Fiction" - is the apogee of creative style of Quentin Tarantino. Here in its entire splendor of his love for the old gangster drama, style of a retro shooting, classic songs of a bygone era and simply create an incredibly vivid characters, which can not be found in everyday life. An important role in the films of Tarantino played quite numerous and lengthy dialogues, most of which are only indirectly belongs to the main action of the film. We can say that it is branded chip from Tarantino, which will subsequently be copied a variety of directors. When viewing the "Pulp Fiction" Be prepared for the fact that 90% of the time the characters will just talk to each other, and all the rest of the time - it is wild and captivating action scenes, which are immaculately decorated by a brilliant soundtrack. It can somehow relate to the dialogue from Tarantino, but the music in his films is divine! Directed as usual took the reins of the music in their own hands and returned from oblivion many old songs and long-lost tunes from old movies that are played with new colors and again in vogue, making a soundtrack disc to the "Pulp Fiction" is not less popular than the film itself.
as for the general meaning of this painting, some logical and moral promise, then find it is not so easy. It may not even need to, because Tarantino takes his movie for themselves ... movies. His works are filled with his own signature style and sometimes we have to just watch the episodes of the life of those or other characters that are not only not going to repent of their sins, but also elevate your lifestyle to the absolute. And this, together with the rivers of blood and the abundance of obscene expressions. But it's Tarantino. There is nothing to be surprised, his work just have to accept.
In the end I want to say that the «Pulp Fiction» is a progressive film of its time, which rightly deserves its cult status. Of course there are also minuses (too tight, kind of pointless), but the picture of Quentin Tarantino, of course, carries in himself without reserve. "Pulp Fiction" is not a drama. It's more of a gangster thriller, philosophical arguments and excellent black comedy. Because I wish you pleasant viewing. How would it not sound nice in relation to a rigid and uncompromising cinema.
