catalyst. made the term "indie film" palatable and marketable, making
the first director to become an actor and an egocentric rock star at the same
time. opening the floodgates for further decentralization such as _El
Mariachi_ and _Blair Witch Project_. but let's face it, the script was
tight, the convoluted time angles intriguing and the right mix of faces and
dialogue made it great. sure, it was a ripoff of pretty much everything,
but it's the equivalent of Nirvana
in the film industry. - @Om*
JULES - "That's what I've been
sitting here contemplating. First, I'm gonna deliver this case to Marsellus.
Then, basically, I'm gonna walk the earth."
VINCENT - "What
do you mean, walk the earth?"
JULES - "You know,

FU_. Just walk from town to town, meet people, get in adventures."
Pulp Fiction (1994)
Tarantino wrote two of the three stories before he wrote
_Reservoir Dogs_ (1992) and _True Romance_ (1993).
After the success of those films, he decided to write
a third story, intending
to have each segment directed by a different person.
The parts of "Honey Bunny" and "Pumpkin" were written
specifically for Amanda Plumber and Tim Roth.
The bandaid on Marsellus Wallace's neck was there

When Butch is approaching his apartment, there is
an advertisment for Jack Rabbit Slims on the radio.
The marquee where Butch boxes advertises the following
fights: "Coolidge vs. Wilson" and "Vossler vs. Martinez"'. The first
is a reference to the presidential election contested by Calvin Coolidge
and Woodrow Wilson, the second is a reference to Rand Vossler and
Jerry Martinez are two friends of Tarantino's from when he worked in
a video store.
In _Reservoir Dogs_ (also written and directed by
Tarantino), Nice Guy Eddie refers to a nurse named "Bonnie".
When Bruce Willis' character Butch goes to leave the
pawn shop after freeing himself, he pauses for a moment- he can either
go to Tennessee and collect his money, or go back to help Marsellus Wallace.
Near to where he pauses are a Tennessee license plate, and a neon sign
for "Killians Red" on a shelf. The only letters that are still lit spell
"Kill ed". We are then shown a shot of Zed's keyring with the "Z" trinket:
we are left with the subliminal message "Kill Zed", which is exactly what
Butch proceeds to do, instead of going to Tennessee and possibly getting
