I was wrong.
This film is a miracle.
Next thing you know I’ll be praising Schindler’s List.
But don’t get me wrong.
I’m being honest.
Pulp Fiction is a masterpiece.
I’ve taken a lot of potshots at Quentin Tarantino.
In reality (of course) I was only shooting at myself.
Because once something becomes too big and too popular…
it can be hard to relate to it.
[Like another masterpiece…The Big Lebowski]
Because I had a massive panic attack when I saw Pulp Fiction in the theater.
No, the big one.
Shot to the heart.
I thought Tarantino gave America a bad name…gave cinema an empty way.
I was wrong.
I hope someday I will be testifying about my conviction in the veracity of the 9/11 commission report.
Snowball day in hell.
My Schindler’s List paean will have long been on this newsstand by then.
Which is to say, not bloody likely.
But there was something I always liked about Tarantino.
Less Miller, more Burroughs.
Hubert Selby meets Comic Book Guy.
Which is to say, me…basically.
Ok, not exactly…but close enough to be a band apart.
Another great film review , Quentin Taratino I like because he pays homage to the samurai and Japan’s great past in both Kill Bill 1& 2 he has a loving approach to the Samurai Japanese tradition , Pulp fiction has everything and its brilliance is the way it uses the genre and makes a number of valid points A great Movie.

Yes, I like the Kill Bill that I have seen. The only one I didn’t like was Inglorious Basterds. Thank you Laurence!! –Paul
Funny review, Paul. Thanks! And thank you for writing. I was just recently thinking of how much I like your reviews. 🙂
Thanks Kristina 🙂 I really appreciate that!!! –Paul
Your another “miracle” review, dear Earthling friend! 🙂 The most I liked parts of this movie have been the dialogue between Butch and Marcellus characters. Sometimes, some experiences are remembered to some movies and their dialogs, you know. For example, if I feel little upset, I remember this one and I smile:
butch: you okay?
marcellus: no man, i am pretty fuckin’ far from ok
Yeah 🙂 that is a great line!!! –Paul
