Pulp Fiction is an American comedy film penned and created under the direction of Quentin Tarantino. However, it is also to be noted that Roger Avaryalso had an immense part in helping with the writing of the story. Lawrence Bender fabricates the film with the aid of A Band Apart and Jersey films production companies. The film was released on May 21, 1994, in Cannes and on October 14, 1994, in the U.S and ran for 154 mins.
The film has several parts of True Romance’s scenes, which Avary penned. The film was a hit and bagged the Palme d’Or award in the Cannes Film Festival of 1994. The story chiefly has three parts with three different heroes and storylines. You will need patience and must pay attention to know the three interlinked stories.
The cast and crew of the film are as follows- John Travolta as Vincent Vega; Samuel L. Jackson as Jules Winnfield; Uma Thurman as Mia Wallace; Bruce Willis as Butch Coolidge; Harvey Keitel as Winston Wolfe; Tim Roth as Ringo; Ving Rhames as Marcellus Wallace and Christopher Walken as Captain Koons.
The plot does become confusing at times since the three stories sometimes fail to establish links with one another. The story begins with the duo- Hitmen Jules Winnfield and Vincent Vega have seen to be standing at a building to get a briefcase for their chief Marsellus Wallace from Brett. While looking at the objects of the briefcase, one of the members of Brett gets shot by Jules. He utters words from the Bible, and he, with his companion, Vincent, kills Brett for attempting to trick Marsellus.
They get hold of the briefcase and hands it over to Marsellus. While they wait, they see Marsellus pay off boxer Butch Coolidge to fix his forthcoming match. The next event depicts Vincent buying heroin for Lance, the drug dealer, and went to Mia, Marsellus’s wife, to aid her in moving away. While Vincent is in the washroom, Mia sees the heroin and breathes it confusing it with cocaine.
She faints and is taken to have an adrenaline injection into her chest in Lance’s house and can be said to have been somehow saved. Vincent returns Mia to her home and promises each other not to speak of the incident to Marsellus. Butch, on the other hand, runs away with his partner Fabienne thinking that Marsellus might kill Butch for tricking him. In the later part, Jules speaks of giving up his illegal job. Pumpkin and Honey Bunny seems to have been knowing that Jules and Vincent have Marsellus’s briefcase and demands it from Jules while Vincent is in the washroom.
Jules, however, could restrict Pumpkin but is threatened by Honey Bunny and gun points him, Vincent arrives and controls the situation, but Jules speaks phrases from the Bible and lets them have the money. The story does become confusing and boring at times and sometimes even loses its track, yet it does, in the end, make you appreciate it. For more such films, stay tuned with us.
