Pulp Fiction

Although it’s also been quite a while since I last revisited Pulp Fiction, I was worried heading into it that it would be too familiar, and not as good as I remembered. Well, quite the opposite, not only did I enjoy this almost as much as when I watched it (over and over) back in the day, it’s really amazing to see what Tarantino was able to achieve on only his second film – and as much as I can say I like all of his movies, I don’t think he’s ever been able to surpass Pulp Fiction. I hear some people say that Reservoir Dogs is a superior movie, but I couldn’t disagree more. As exciting and enjoyable as it is, Dogs is too raw, it’s still Tarantino exploring the medium, seeing how he can subvert it. Pulp Fiction is a masterclass in structure.
