PULP FICTION + Boozy Vanilla Milkshake
May 19, 2017 @ 8:30 pm
“I’d like to know what a $5 shake tastes like […] Goddamn, that’s a pretty fucking good milkshake.” Vincent Vega
“We were primed for a movie like Pulp Fiction. Its narrative and visual and aural pastiche, spitting pop cultural allusions like sparks from a grinding wheel, spoke a language we instinctively understood. Pulp Fiction didn’t define us so much as it revealed us, by dramatizing our sensibilities to the world.” Senses of Cinema
“Pulp Fiction is quite innocent, both obnoxiously and endearingly so. It’s undeniably a personal film, but it’s a personal ode to impersonality, to emotional evasion through stuff… Something like Pulp Fiction, which has grown more and more pleasurable over the years, can almost play like disreputable porn that allows us to drink in the forbidden pleasures of tactile variety, whether it’s of humans, toys, objects, or outfits.” Fandor
Vincent Vega (John Travolta) and Jules Winnfield (Samuel L. Jackson) are hitmen with a penchant for philosophical discussions. In this iconic, multi-strand crime movie, their storyline is interwoven with those of their boss, gangster Marsellus Wallace (Ving Rhames) ; his actress wife, Mia (Uma Thurman) ; struggling boxer Butch Coolidge (Bruce Willis) ; master fixer Winston Wolfe (Harvey Keitel) and a nervous pair of armed robbers, “Pumpkin” (Tim Roth) and “Honey Bunny” (Amanda Plummer).
Dir. Quentin Tarantino. 1994. 154 min.
