Putting the Pulp in Pulp Fiction
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Between interlocking story lines and black humor, few films have gained such universal critical acclaim (without winning Best Picture) as Quentin Tarantino’s 1994 mob masterpiece Pulp Fiction. Dominated by brilliant dialogue, violence, and subtle criticisms of American culture, the Best Original Screenplay-winning film intertwined food to further each of these critical plot threads. Indeed, Tarantino’s use of food was central to every major scene in the film, heralding impending violence and offering a tangible and relatable avenue for a commentary on American culture at that time.
