There are a great number of things we can discuss about the movie. Let me focus on the plot to ask this basic question: Why tell the story in a non-linear style? The first time I read Pulp Fiction, I thought Tarantino had gone the non-linear route because it was stylistically cool. And indeed, it is cool. Arguably, this movie spawned an entire wave of cinematic storytelling, everything from end-scenes placed up front movies The Usual Suspects , movies which employ occasional non-linear elements Out of Sight , to movies whose plot is told forward and in reverse Memento.
Tarantino goes to great lengths up front, enormous gobs of seemingly inane dialogue P. So Tarantino has set us up to anticipate yet another post-modern, ironic take on violence, the breakdown of society, etc.
But what is really going on, in my opinion, is far more traditional: A tale about morality and humanity, one guy who finds it Jules , and one guy who does not Vincent. The guy who finds it lives. The guy who does not dies. What if we consider Jules and Vincent to be co-protagonists. Both are confronted by the same story-turning event, the Fourth Man shoot-em-up scene which happens on P.
Against all odds and in defiance of all logic, both Jules and Vincent survive without a scratch. From now on in, you can consider my ass retire. He had come onto the scene as a brash and independent thinker but he set his sights on the ultimate prize. He wanted to be Hollywood royalty, a legendary director. He wanted people to listen and to see the Los Angles he saw every day: the underbelly, the slick and degenerate criminal world. He locked himself in a hotel room with Roger Avary, and they cracked Pulp Fiction.
A few months later, it was in producers' hands, then shooting, and finally The screenplay and film launched many imitators, but none were able to equal the success or fervor as Pulp Fiction. Now, I want to take a look back at a few more interesting parts of the Pulp Fiction screenplay to see what we can learn as writers.
They dreamed of making it big time. Tarantino was the first to do so, jumping into Reservoir Dogs and making his mark on indie cinema. But he still needed that crossover. When Tarantino was stuck in Amsterdam on a press tour, Avary showed up to hang out.
They locked themselves into a hotel room and started working on Pulp Fiction. It was a collaborative effort that brought out the best in both filmmakers. The script was about a side of Los Angeles most people have never seen. It was a bold introduction to the world, and its non-linear storytelling managed to hit every beat, while also feeling fresh and new. The story is told non-linearly, meaning out of order. I grabbed this helpful, complete summary from GradeSaver's Study Guide.
Honey Bunny teases Pumpkin for not wanting to commit armed robberies anymore, and Pumpkin explains that robbing the diner would be better than robbing convenience stores or banks. She agrees, and the two leap to their feet and draw their weapons, before the opening credits roll.
Across town, two men in suits named Vincent and Jules ride in a car discussing Europe and fast food.
Jules tells Vincent that Marsellus, their boss, allegedly had a man thrown off a balcony for massaging his wife Mia's feet, who Vincent has been instructed to take out to dinner.
They argue about the implications of foot massages, before storming an apartment with three men inside. Jules kills one, and recites Ezekiel before killing another, named Brett. Vincent retrieves a briefcase, the contents of which glow, from a kitchen cabinet. In a bar, Marsellus gives an envelope full of cash to a boxer named Butch, bribing him to throw his next match.
Vincent and Jules, now wearing tee shirts, enter the bar, and Butch has a brief exchange with Vincent on his way out. After downloading three grams of heroin, Vincent shoots up and heads to Mia's house.
Mia does cocaine in the bathroom while Vincent fixes himself a drink. They head to a restaurant named Jackrabbit Slim's, where they talk about Mia's failed television pilot and the foot massage rumor, which Mia denies. Mia forces Vincent to participate in a twist contest, which they win. Back at Mia's house, while Vincent uses the bathroom, Mia mistakes his heroin for cocaine and snorts it, falling unconscious.
A panicked Vincent rushes her to Lance's house, although Lance is reluctant to help. Vincent is able to successfully revive her with an adrenaline shot straight to the heart.
At the end of the night, Mia tells Vincent a joke from her television pilot, which she previously refused to divulge, and the two agree to keep the night's events a secret.
As an adult, Butch kills his opponent in a boxing match, rather than purposely lose as Marsellus wanted. Butch escapes in a cab driven by a woman named Esmeralda, and calls a bookie named Scottie who plans to collect Butch's earnings. Meanwhile, Marsellus orders that Butch be killed.
The next morning, Butch realizes his gold watch is missing, and angrily leaves the motel in search of it.
Butch cautiously returns to his apartment, and initially finds no one there. He retrieves the watch and notices a gun on the counter. He hears the toilet flush, and kills the man who emerges from the bathroom, which turns out to be Vincent.
Butch leaves and is spotted by Marsellus at a stoplight. Butch rams him with his car, and an injured Marsellus chases an injured Butch until both men are subdued inside a nearby pawn shop by the owner, named Maynard.
Butch and Marsellus awaken in the pawn shop basement, where Maynard has bound and gagged them. A man named Zed shows up, who orders Maynard to get "the Gimp," a man in a full-body bondage suit who sleeps in a trunk. Zed drags Marsellus into another room to be raped while Maynard watches, and Butch manages to break free.
Butch is about to flee when he hears Marsellus's cries and instead retrieves a katana sword and ambushes the men, killing Maynard. Now freed, Marsellus shoots Zed in the crotch, and tells Butch that the men are even, as long as Butch leaves town and never tells anyone about the incident. Butch rides Zed's chopper motorcycle back to the motel, and he and Fabienne ride away together.
The film flashes back to the scene where Jules recites Ezekiel , this time from the perspective of an armed man hiding in the bathroom. After Jules kills Brett, the man runs out and fires wildly, miraculously missing Jules and Vincent with his entire clip. Jules and Vincent kill him, and Jules calls the event an act of "divine intervention. In the car, the men continue debating "divine intervention," and Jules pledges to give up his life of crime.
Vincent accidentally shoots Marvin in the face, killing him. At Jimmie's house, Jules calls Marsellus for help, who arranges for a man named Winston Wolfe to come over and help fix the situation.
Jimmie tells the men they have ninety minutes before his wife Bonnie arrives home.
