Over this semester I will be reviewing some movies available on Netflix that I feel are just too outstanding for someone of our generation to miss out on, and I can think of no better film to start with than the Tarantino classic “Pulp Fiction.”

“Pulp Fiction” is a 1994 crime movie set in 1970’s America about two philosophical hit men. Or is it about an actress who married a crime lord? No wait, it’s about a boxer finding himself on the wrong side of some bad people. So many little strands weave through this story that you can’t really tell which is the focus. You think they can’t possibly be connected, but when the strands finally weave together, they do so in an incredible way. This is all due to the spectacular directing of Quentin Tarantino.

Quentin Tarantino came out of nowhere as an independent film maker, taking the world by storm with his first movie “Reservoir Dogs” regarded now as being the greatest independent film of all time. After that he made “Pulp Fiction,” which won 65 awards including an Oscar and a Golden Globe. When it was released in 1994 “Rolling Stone magazine” stated: “Whatever you call it, Pulp Fiction is indisputably great.”

This movie is not only amazingly written and directed, it also hosts a score of outstanding actors, including John Travolta, Uma Thurman, and Samuel L. Jackson, just to name a few. It takes a lot to define a decade, but I would say that “Pulp Fiction” defined the cinematography of the 90’s and is definitely worth a watch if you can handle the very aggressive language, and a whole lot of “Tarantino blood.” And it just so happens it’s available to stream on Netflix now.
