My 150 Favorite Films - #14
This movie was a game changer for many, including it's director, Quentin Tarantino, it's star, John Travolta, and the Hollywood landscape in general. Inspired by many genre films, Tarantino first made his mark with Reservoir Dogs (see My 150 Favorite Films - #82), and continued his trajectory with this landmark film. Without a linear plot point, it's difficult to describe what this movie's about, but suffice to say it manages to be both shocking, and very, very funny. Also starring Samuel L. Jackson, Uma Thurman, plus a cast of thousands (seemingly), Pulp Fiction went on to inspire and influence many more films in its wake. Winner of the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay.
