Critics and audiences worldwide hailed PULP FICTION as the star-studded picture that redefined cinema in the 20th Century! Writer/director Quentin Tarantino (Academy Award(R) Winner -- Best Original Screenplay, 1994) delivers an unforgettable cast of characters -- including a pair of low-rent hit men (John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson), their boss's sexy wife (Uma Thurman), and a desperate prizefighter (Bruce Willis) -- in a wildly entertaining and exhilarating motion picture adventure that both thrills and amuses!
This collector's edition of Pulp Fiction retains several supplemental features from the out-of-print Criterion Collection laserdisc, adding some fine bonus material of its own. A new documentary combines cast and crew interviews from various sources with on-set footage and healthy hindsight on the Pulp Fiction phenomenon, while the Charlie Rose hour from 1994 remains a definitive interview from the peak of Quentin Tarantino's stratospheric success. Better yet is Michael Moore's priceless off-the-cuff interview with Tarantino, Samuel L. Jackson, and producer Lawrence Bender at the 1995 Independent Spirit Awards--a refreshing and high-spirited moment of indie-Hollywood candor, with all pretense of seriousness removed. A comprehensive archive of reviews and articles (including one by Tarantino) will prove of lasting value as reference material, and the exclusive DVD-ROM features include "enhanced playback," allowing users to watch the film accompanied by informative text, or side by side with the screenplay. And since the otherwise talkative Tarantino doesn't do commentaries, an "open-mic" feature allows do-it-yourself commentary--it's like karaoke for cinephiles! --Jeff Shannon

PULP FICTION (1994) is an intentionally fragmented religious allegory.
The movie starts in the story's middle, just after its most crucial scene has occurred. The ending reveals this moment: the conversion of a bad man into a true prophet of God and not a false one who liked quoting Biblical verse before killing his mark, also the doom of this converted man's partner, a non-believer who continues on an evil path until he's struck down.
You may remember early on that John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson are shot at from close range and the bullets seemingly pass through them without harm. Jackson correctly recognizes this as both Divine intervention and a message that if he doen't change his ways he will surely die. In the diner, Travolta dismisses this as bunk, goes on to try and "hit" Bruce Willis, a boxer who was supposed to take a dive but didn't, and ends up dead when Willis uses Travolta's own automatic weapon to shoot him down.
If I were to put the film in correct order it would be:
Travolta's and Jackson's recovery of a briefcase filled with who knows what, the early morning murder of two men who had the case and the miracle.
The accidental killing of the third man in Jackson's car.
The scene at Tarantino's house with "fixer" Harvey Keitel.
Jackson's revelation in the diner about becoming a righteous wanderer and Travolta's rejection of the miracle message, an act that seals his doom.
The diner being robbed by Tim Roth and Amanda Plummer, with Jackson now demonstrating his newfound holiness: he lets them both live.
Travolta's non-date with Uma Thurman that almost ends in her OD death.
During this same evening, Bruce Willis wins a fight he's ordered to lose, then tries to escape the wrath of mob boss Ving Rhames.
The next morning, Willis goes to his apartment where he recovers his wristwatch and kills Travolta.
Immediately after, Willis encounters Rhames on the street; the two of them end up prisoners at a sádistic pèrv's gunshop.
Their narrow escape from death here is the story's actual end. There's a grudging truce between Willis and Rhames, but Willis must leave town. Jackson has gone off to be a prophet, Travolta is dead.
Supporting cast includes: Rosanna Arquette, Christopher Walken, Eric Stoltz, Kathy Griffin, Julia Sweeney and the film's producer, Lawrence Bender.
At the 1950s retro burger joint, Buddy Holly is played by Steve Buscemi.
