Customer Review

on May 8, 2003
because I didn't get what I expected. Some movies are great because of the acting, some because of the story, some because of the cinematography. This movie is great because of the dialogue, and it's awfully hard to appreciate the dialogue and how it builds up the plot and tension in the movie the first time through.
Why is Vincent (Travolta) so upset when Marsellus's wife Mia(Thurman) OD's on his heroin? Because of the exchange that he had with Jules (Jackson) about the guy who Marsellus threw out of a four-story window because he massaged Mia's feet (which we actually find out later was actually just a handshake). Vincent can only imagine what Marsellus will do to him if Mia dies.
The dialogue builds on itself and creates the environment which the characters live in. The characters almost never talk *about* what's happening, so the dialogue runs perpendicular to the story. But it still ties the different elements together.
You need to watch this movie at least twice to appreciate it. Also, I would recommend reading Ebert's review of Pulp Fiction in his Great Movies book.
