James Luxford presents… Pulp Fiction

Dir. Quentin Tarantino. USA 1994. 2h 34m. Starring John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Uma Thurman


Quentin Tarantino’s second film took the world by storm winning the Palme d’Or and a Best Original Screenplay Oscar. Independent American cinema would never be the same again.

The lives of two mob hit men, a boxer, a gangster’s wife, and a pair of diner bandits intertwine in this postmodern masterpiece.


“A spectacularly entertaining piece of pop culture.” ~ Todd McCarthy, Variety

“Tarantino’s dialogue, with its densely propulsive, almost lawyerly fervor, its peppery comic blend of literacy and funk, has more snap and fight than most directors’ action scenes.” ~ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
