Pulp Fiction (1994)

Quentin Tarantino’s films are as much about the movies as they are about violence. After bursting on the scene with his tribute to heist films, Reservoir Dogs (1992), he revolutionized the industry with Pulp Fiction. His time-jumbled tale of lowlifes (including John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Willis and Uma Thurman) revolving around a crime boss (Ving Rhames) contains a dizzying array of film references speaking to a generation that delighted in the increasing proliferation of media. It also inspired other filmmakers who, like Tarantino, had grown up at the movies or in front of the TV. Although some critics considered his use of startling, graphic and sometimes even slapstick violence nihilistic, others found the sheer love of cinema behind his work exhilarating.

Join us for a special conversation with John Travolta, Uma Thurman, Samuel L. Jackson, and Harvey Keitel.

Also in attendance: Rosanna Arquette, Phil LaMarr, Burr Steers, Eric Stoltz, Julia Sweeney, and Frank Whaley; producer Lawrence Bender; executive producers Michael Shamberg and Stacey Sher.

d. Quentin Tarantino, 154m, 35mm
