Come see cult classic Pulp Fiction on the big screen in L3! From an original 35mm film print.
One of the most famous films ever, by one of the best film-makers ever, and in 35mm! A great way to start Welcome Week. The BBFC rating is 18, so it's also a great way to celebrate adulthood if you're a fresher and have just turned 18!
Written and directed by Quentin Tarantino, Pulp Fiction is one of the greatest films of all time.
It tells the stories of two hitmen (John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson), their boss’s wife (Uma Thurman), an aging boxer (Bruce Willis) and other players in the Los Angeles criminal underworld as their paths cross and lives intersect in pursuit of a mysterious briefcase and a gold watch.
Tarantino’s screenplay is a masterpiece, with much of the joy of the film coming from the perfectly written characters interacting with each other in iconic scene after iconic scene, each featuring the rich and memorable dialogue that is typical of his writing. Even minor characters such as Harvey Keitel’s Winston Wolfe become highlights of the film from the few minutes of screen time they receive. Samuel L. Jackson’s performance stands out as one of the finest in his career, as he brings to life a fascinating character through a number of both tense and comedic moments, including some spellbinding monologues.
Equally brilliant is the film’s direction. The soundtrack is impeccably chosen for any given moment, while the use of title cards, colour and a non-linear narrative enhances the film’s mood, giving it a certain uniqueness that, alongside the brilliant acting and writing, has earned it a cult following and impacted popular culture more than perhaps any other modern film.
So, now you’ve heard the facts, come and see the Fiction – projected in glorious 35 mm at the Warwick Student Cinema. You won’t regret it.
