Pulp Fiction

pulp fiction

Pulp Fiction is an American movie of the year 1994, winner of a Golden palm and an Oscar, written and directed by Quentin Tarantino, and led by John Travolta, Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson and Uma Thurman, between others. Because of its eclectic dialogs, its ironic combination of humor and violence, and its multiple cinematographic references and the culture pop, it is considered to be one of the most representative movies of the cinema realized by Tarantino.

The movie is clear of three short histories that intermingle as the film advances. It begins with a man and a woman called Pumpkin and Honey Bunny, who are preparing to moor. After the credits, the history continues with two “gangsters”, Vincent Vega and Jules Winnfield,  sent by their boss Marsellus to the apartment of a few pickpockets called Marvin, Brett and Roger to recover a strange suitcase which content is never revealed. On having come to the place they recover the suitcase and kill Roger and Brett.

I believe that it  is of the best movies that I have ever seen and since then it’s one of my favorite ones.

Louise is working in a fast food restaurant as a waitress and has some problems with her friend Jimmy, who, as a musician, is always on the road. Thelma is married to Darryl who likes his wife to stay quiet in the kitchen so that he can watch football on TV. One day they decide to break out of their normal life and jump in the car and hit the road. Their journey, however, turns into a flight when Louise kills a man who threatens to rape Thelma.

It’s a good film that makes you think in some extrem situations where you can meet involved in this life.
