Der Koffer aus Pulp Fiction

They eat at a s-themed restaurant and participate in a twist contest, then return home with the trophy. While Vincent is in the bathroom, Mia finds his heroin, mistakes it for cocaine , snorts it, and overdoses.

Vincent rushes her to Lance's house, where they revive her with an adrenaline shot to her heart. Butch betrays Marsellus and wins the bout, accidentally killing his opponent.

At the motel where he and his girlfriend Fabienne are lying low and preparing to flee, Butch discovers she has forgotten to pack his father's gold watch, a beloved heirloom, and flies into a rage.

Returning to his apartment to retrieve the watch, he notices a MAC on the kitchen counter and hears the toilet flush.

Vincent exits the bathroom, and Butch shoots him dead, leaving the gun inside. As Butch waits at a traffic light in his car, Marsellus happens to spot him.

Butch crashes his car into Marsellus, leaving both of the men injured and dazed. After coming to, Marcellus takes a gun out, shoots at Butch, and chases him into a pawnshop.

Butch gains the upper hand and points the gun at Marsellus, but the owner, Maynard, captures them both at gunpoint and ties them up in the basement.

Zed, a security guard, joins Maynard. Together, they take Marsellus to another room to rape him, leaving "the gimp", a silent figure in a bondage suit , to watch Butch.

Butch breaks loose and knocks out the gimp with a punch. He is about to flee but decides to save Marsellus, returning with a katana from the pawnshop and killing Maynard.

Marsellus retrieves Maynard's shotgun and shoots Zed in the crotch. Marsellus informs Butch that they are even, as long as he tells no one about the rape and departs Los Angeles forever.

Butch picks up Fabienne on Zed's chopper , and they drive away. Earlier, after Vincent and Jules have killed Brett in his apartment, another man bursts out of the bathroom; this man shoots at them wildly but misses with every bullet.

Jules and Vincent kill him. Jules professes their survival was a miracle, which Vincent disputes.

As Jules drives, Vincent accidentally shoots Brett's associate Marvin in the head, covering themselves and the car in blood in broad daylight.

They hide the car at the home of Jules' friend Jimmie, who demands they deal with the problem before his wife comes home.

Marsellus sends his cleaner , Winston Wolfe, who directs Jules and Vincent to clean the car, hide the body in the trunk, dispose of their bloody clothes, and take the car to a junkyard.

At a diner, Jules tells Vincent that he plans to retire from his life of crime, convinced that their "miraculous" survival at the apartment was a sign of divine intervention.

While Vincent is in the bathroom, a couple dubbed "Pumpkin" and "Honey Bunny" hold up the restaurant. Jules overpowers Pumpkin and holds him at gunpoint; Honey Bunny becomes hysterical and trains her gun on him.

Vincent returns with his gun aimed at her. Jules recites the biblical passage, expresses ambivalence about his life of crime, and allows the robbers to take his cash and leave.

Jules and Vincent leave the diner with the briefcase. Additionally, Bronagh Gallagher plays Jody's friend Trudi who does little but smoke a bong during the scene where Vincent revives Mia.

According to author Jason Bailey, "Quentin thought it would be funny to have this casual observer who just happened to be there. All of this was born out of the experience of, when you go to someone's house to buy drugs, there are always people who are just there.

LaMarr auditioned for Tarantino after both had done a show for an improv group a few months prior. Tarantino was unsure whether to play Jimmie or Lance, choosing Jimmie as he wanted to be behind the camera during Mia's overdose scene.

Frank Whaley portrays Brett, an associate of Jules and Vincent who has a briefcase requested by Marcellus. He recalls, "we ended up meeting and spending time together, and I liked him, so I was really happy when he asked me to be in this movie.

The scene of the confrontation between Brett and Jules went through several takes due to Steers making mistakes. Steers recalled in an interview that he had found acting difficult due to the loudness of the gunshots.

Angela Jones portrays Esmeralda Villalobos, a cab driver who aids Butch's escape. Her casting and character were inspired by her performance in the short film Curdled , later remade as a feature film with finance from Tarantino and again starring Jones.

Buscemi, who had appeared in Reservoir Dogs , was originally considered for the role of Jimmie, but was unable to commit. Roger Avary wrote the first element of what would become the Pulp Fiction screenplay in the fall of Tarantino and Avary decided to write a short , on the theory that it would be easier to get made than a feature.

But they quickly realized that nobody produces shorts, so the film became a trilogy, with one section by Tarantino, one by Avary, and one by a third director who never materialized.

Each eventually expanded his section into a feature-length script. The initial inspiration was the three-part horror anthology film Black Sabbath , by Italian filmmaker Mario Bava.

The Tarantino—Avary project was provisionally titled " Black Mask ", after the seminal hardboiled crime fiction magazine.

With work on Reservoir Dogs completed, Tarantino returned to the notion of a trilogy film: "I got the idea of doing something that novelists get a chance to do but filmmakers don't: telling three separate stories, having characters float in and out with different weights depending on the story.

You know, you've seen the story a zillion times. I wanted him to be a bully and a jerk". He cast the lead actress, Angela Jones , in Pulp Fiction and later backed the filmmakers' production of a feature-length version of Curdled.

Released in the United States in October , the picture was a critical and commercial success. In January , the Pulp Fiction script was complete.

Tarantino and his producer, Lawrence Bender , brought the script to Jersey Film. Before even seeing Reservoir Dogs , Jersey had attempted to sign Tarantino for his next project.

He characterizes the studio's position: "'This is the worst thing ever written. It makes no sense. Someone's dead and then they're alive.

It's too long, violent, and unfilmable. So I thought, 'That's that! Bender brought the script to Miramax , the formerly independent studio that had recently been acquired by Disney.

Though he had recently appeared in several big-budget flops, he was still a major overseas draw. Principal photography commenced on September 20, I wanted it to look like an epic.

The reason we use it is that it creates an almost no-grain image, it's lustrous. It's the closest thing we have to 50s Technicolor.

One of his pop totems, Fruit Brute , a long-discontinued General Mills cereal, also returned from the earlier film. No film score was composed for Pulp Fiction ; Quentin Tarantino instead used an eclectic assortment of surf music , rock and roll , soul , and pop songs.

Dick Dale 's rendition of " Misirlou " plays during the opening credits. Tarantino chose surf music as the basic musical style for the film, but not, he insists, because of its association with surfing culture: "To me it just sounds like rock and roll, even Morricone music.

It sounds like rock and roll spaghetti Western music. Lovelace also appeared in the film as Laura, a waitress; she reprises the role in Jackie Brown.

The album peaked on the Billboard chart at number Estella Tincknell describes how the particular combination of well-known and obscure recordings helps establish the film as a "self-consciously 'cool' text.

The Weinsteins "hit the beach like commandos", bringing the picture's entire cast over. The first U. Todd McCarthy called Pulp Fiction a "spectacularly entertaining piece of pop culture It's like, all of a sudden, 'I gotta watch this I gotta pay attention.

It's actually fun to watch an audience in some ways chase after a movie. The New York Times published its review the day of the opening.

Janet Maslin called the film a "triumphant, cleverly disorienting journey through a demimonde that springs entirely from Mr.

Tarantino's ripe imagination, a landscape of danger, shock, hilarity and vibrant local color As Peter Biskind describes, "It was not platformed, that is, it did not open in a handful of theaters and roll out slowly as word of mouth built, the traditional way of releasing an indie film ; it went wide immediately, into 1, theaters.

Miramax played with the issue in its marketing campaign: "You won't know the facts till you've seen the fiction", went one slogan. The website's critical consensus reads, "One of the most influential films of the s, Pulp Fiction is a delirious post-modern mix of neo-noir thrills, pitch-black humor, and pop-culture touchstones.

The response of major American film reviewers was widely favorable. It dares Hollywood films to be this smart about going this far.

If good directors accept Tarantino's implicit challenge, the movie theater could again be a great place to live in. I'm not sure I've ever encountered a filmmaker who combined discipline and control with sheer wild-ass joy the way that Tarantino does.

The Los Angeles Times was one of the few major news outlets to publish a negative review on the film's opening weekend. Kenneth Turan wrote, "The writer-director appears to be straining for his effects.

Some sequences, especially one involving bondage harnesses and homosexual rape, have the uncomfortable feeling of creative desperation, of someone who's afraid of losing his reputation scrambling for any way to offend sensibilities.

While not panning the film, Stanley Kauffmann of The New Republic felt that "the way that [it] has been so widely ravened up and drooled over verges on the disgusting.

Pulp Fiction nourishes, abets, cultural slumming. Debate about the film spread beyond the review pages. Violence was often the theme.

In The Washington Post , Donna Britt described how she was happy not to see Pulp Fiction on a recent weekend and thus avoid "discussing the rousing scene in which a gunshot sprays somebody's brains around a car interior".

In the Chicago Tribune , Todd Boyd argued that the word's recurrence "has the ability to signify the ultimate level of hipness for white males who have historically used their perception of black masculinity as the embodiment of cool".

Only in this age could a writer as talented as Tarantino produce artworks so vacuous, so entirely stripped of any politics, metaphysics, or moral interest.

At the 52nd Golden Globe Awards , Tarantino, named as sole recipient of the Best Screenplay honor, failed to mention Avary in his acceptance speech.

Travolta, Jackson, and Thurman were each nominated as well for the 1st Screen Actors Guild Awards , presented on February 25, but none took home the honor.

Pulp Fiction quickly came to be regarded as one of the most significant films of its era. In Siskel's view,. Each film shook up a tired, bloated movie industry and used a world of lively lowlifes to reflect how dull other movies had become.

And that, I predict, will be the ultimate honor for Pulp Fiction. Like all great films, it criticizes other movies. And that the parody or alteration of that film creates a new form, a different experience for the audience.

In a widely covered speech on May 31, , Republican presidential candidate Bob Dole attacked the American entertainment industry for peddling "nightmares of depravity".

Pulp Fiction was soon associated with his charges concerning gratuitous violence. Dole had not mentioned the film; he cited two less-celebrated movies based on Tarantino screenplays, Natural Born Killers and True Romance.

Paula Rabinowitz expresses the general film industry opinion that Pulp Fiction "simultaneously resurrected John Travolta and film noir".

Less than a year after the picture's release, British critic Jon Ronson attended the National Film School 's end-of-semester screenings and assessed the impact: "Out of the five student movies I watched, four incorporated violent shoot-outs over a soundtrack of iconoclastic 70s pop hits, two climaxed with all the main characters shooting each other at once, and one had two hitmen discussing the idiosyncrasies of The Brady Bunch before offing their victim.

Not since Citizen Kane has one man appeared from relative obscurity to redefine the art of moviemaking. Its impact on Hollywood was deeper still.

According to Variety , the trajectory of Pulp Fiction from Cannes launch to commercial smash "forever altered the game" of so-called independent cinema.

Once the studios realized that they could exploit the economies of small scale, they more or less gave up buying or remaking the films themselves, and either bought the distributors, as Disney had Miramax, or started their own And its impact was even broader than that.

It has been described as a "major cultural event", an "international phenomenon" that influenced television, music, literature, and advertising. Several scenes and images from the film achieved iconic status; in , Entertainment Weekly declared, "You'd be hard-pressed, by now, to name a moment from Quentin Tarantino's film that isn't iconic.

In , BBC News reported that "London transport workers have painted over an iconic mural by 'guerrilla artist' Banksy Jackson and John Travolta clutching bananas instead of guns.

One of the more notable homages to Jules "Biblical" quote was one Jackson himself played a part in, near the end of 's Captain America: The Winter Soldier , Jackson's character Col.

Nick Fury , presumed dead, visits his own gravestone, on which, below Fury's name is inscribed "The path of the righteous man Pulp Fiction now appears in several critical assessments of all-time great films.

In , Entertainment Weekly named it the best film of the past quarter-century. A Empire poll combining the opinions of readers, movie industry professionals, and critics named Pulp Fiction the ninth-best film of all time.

Tarantino has stated that he originally planned "to do a Black Mask movie", referring to the magazine largely responsible for popularizing hardboiled detective fiction.

Both dealt heavily in the realm of improbable coincidences and cruel cosmic jokes, a realm that Pulp Fiction makes its own.

He suggests that Leonard's "rich dialogue" is reflected in Tarantino's "popular-culture-strewn jive"; he also points to the acute, extremely dark sense of humor Leonard applies to the realm of violence as a source of inspiration.

Robert Kolker sees the "flourishes, the apparent witty banality of the dialogue, the goofy fracturing of temporality [as] a patina over a pastiche.

The pastiche The movie's host of pop culture allusions, ranging from the famous image of Marilyn Monroe 's skirt flying up over a subway grating to Jules addressing a soon-to-be victim as " Flock of Seagulls " because of his haircut, [] have led many critics to discuss it within the framework of postmodernism.

Describing the film in as Tarantino's "postmodern masterpiece He characterizes its convoluted narrative technique as "postmodern tricksiness".

She proposes that it "can be seen as effecting her resurrection from the dead, simultaneously recalling and undermining the Gothic convention of the vampire's stake.

On this model, the referencing of previous aesthetic forms and styles moves beyond Mark T. Conard asks, "[W]hat is the film about?

Pulp Fiction unmasks the macho myth by making it laughable and deheroicizes the power trip glorified by standard Hollywood violence.

There is no nudity and no violence directed against women Where Stone sees a celebration, Kolker finds a vacuum: "The postmodern insouciance, violence, homophobia, and racism of Pulp Fiction were perfectly acceptable because the film didn't pretend seriousness and therefore didn't mock it.

That's why Pulp Fiction was so popular. Not because all audiences got all or any of its references to Scorsese and Kubrick, but because the narrative and spatial structure of the film never threatened to go beyond themselves into signification.

Henry A. Giroux argues that Tarantino "empties violence of any critical social consequences, offering viewers only the immediacy of shock, humor, and irony-without-insight as elements of mediation.

None of these elements gets beyond the seduction of voyeuristic gazing Regarding the violence and nihilism in the film, Pamela Demory has suggested that Pulp Fiction should be seen in light of the short stories of Flannery O'Connor , [] which likewise feature "religious elements, banality, and violence with grotesque humor.

Pulp Fiction is full of homages to other movies. According to the filmmaker;. Everybody thinks that I wrote this scene just to have John Travolta dancing.

But the scene existed before John Travolta was cast. But once he was cast, it was like, "Great. We get to see John dance.

All the better. My favorite musical sequences have always been in Godard, because they just come out of nowhere. It's so infectious, so friendly.

And the fact that it's not a musical, but he's stopping the movie to have a musical sequence, makes it all the more sweet.

Jerome Charyn argues that, beyond "all the better", Travolta's presence is essential to the power of the scene, and of the film:. Travolta's entire career becomes " backstory ", the myth of a movie star who has fallen out of favor, but still resides in our memory as the king of disco.

We keep waiting for him to shed his paunch, put on a white polyester suit, and enter the Odyssey club in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, where he will dance for us and never, never stop.

Daniel Day-Lewis couldn't have woken such a powerful longing in us. He isn't part of America's own mad cosmology Doch im Film erfährt man nie, was genau darin transportiert wird.

Zwar wird er in einigen Szenen geöffnet, aber der Inhalt bleibt dem Zuschauer stets verborgen. Man sieht lediglich ein orangenes Licht aus dem Koffer scheinen.

Laut Regisseur Quentin Tarantino sei das volle Absicht. Der Zuschauer soll selbst interpretieren, was sich darin befindet. Co-Autor Roger Avary verriet allerdings, dass ursprünglich Diamanten dafür vorgesehen waren.

Jerome Patrick Hoban. Pulp Fiction Koffer

Perhaps the most popular theory, however, is that the briefcase contains Marsellus Wallace's soul. Snopes has an example of this theory:. Remember the first time you were introduced to Marsellus Wallace.

The first shot of him was of the back of his head, complete with band-aid. Then, remember the combination of the lock on the briefcase was Then, remember that whenever anyone opened the briefcase, it glowed, and they were in amazement at how beautiful it was; they were speechless.

Now, bring in some Bible knowledge, and remember that when the devil takes your soul, he takes it from the back of your head.

Yep, you guessed it. What is the most beautiful thing about a person: his soul. Marsellus Wallace had sold his soul to the devil, and was trying to buy it back.

The three kids in the beginning of the movie were the devil's helpers. And remember that when the kid at the end came out of the bathroom with a "hand cannon," Jules and Vincent were not harmed by the bullets.

It was divine intervention. In a interview with Playboy, Samuel L. Jackson explained how he asked Tarantino what was in the suitcase and got the reply, "Whatever you want it to be.

The "pulp" in "Pulp Fiction" is "toilet paper. Every time Vincent Vega goes to the bathroom , something terrible happens.

When Vega spends a long time psyching himself up at Mia Wallace's house, she overdoses on his heroin.

At the diner, if he hadn't been reading "Modesty Blaise" in the bathroom, he probably wouldn't have let Jules Winnfield talk calmly with the robbers.

Once again, if he wasn't reading "Modesty Blaise" at Butch Coolidge's house, he would have been ready to kill the boxer on the run.

It wasn't just that whenever he'd go to the bathroom, something bad would happen, Vega also took way longer than a normal person every time. Starting to read a book in the middle of hanging out with Winnfield is sort of rude.

Why did he cherish his bathroom time so much? On top of Vega's bathroom habits, other characters in the movie really could have benefitted from hurrying up a little.

The assailant from Brett's apartment would have been in the room to begin with if he hadn't taken so long in the bathroom, which could have led to both his and Marvin's survival.

Slightly more of a stretch as nothing changes at the diner due to her action, but Wallace, too, could have spent less time in the bathroom and not done cocaine, which led to an eventual overdose.

Jules Winnfield's Ezekiel monologue is a "misquote," but could actually be the real passage from how The Bible was written in Tarantino's universe.

Before executing Brett in his apartment, Jules Winnfield says he's memorized a passage from Ezekiel and says:.

The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness.

For he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers.

And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you. This isn't how the Bible passage actually goes in real life in any translation as it's pulled from the intro of a Sonny Chiba movie called "The Bodyguard.

But what if in Tarantino's universe, the Bible was actually more hyper-violent. As Reddit user ProfessorStephenHawk points out , "If the Bible had been translated in this way, it would mean a world where more emphasis is placed on 'striking down' evil men.

Even saying those who do so are blessed. That kind of change in text would have some consequences, ie. The ultra-violence in Tarantino movies would certainly make a lot more sense if Jesus was more of a Django-esque character in the Bible.

The classic movie mistake of the bullet holes already being in the apartment wall before Vincent and Jules are shot at was actually intentional.

Vincent Vega and Jules Winnfield are attempting to collect Marsellus Wallace's suitcase from Brett's apartment when a surprise assailant jumps out and tried to shoot them with a gun.

All shots miss, Vega and Winnfield kill the assailant and Winnfield chalks it up to "divine intervention," saying, "We should be fucking dead" and "God came down from Heaven and stopped these motherfucking bullets.

In this scene, however, the bullet holes behind Vega and Winnfield that were seemingly caused by the assailant's missed shots are there before he even jumps out.

The album peaked on the Billboard chart at number Estella Tincknell describes how the particular combination of well-known and obscure recordings helps establish the film as a "self-consciously 'cool' text.

There is no nudity and no violence directed against women Where Stone sees a celebration, Kolker finds a vacuum: "The postmodern insouciance, violence, homophobia, and racism of Pulp Fiction were perfectly acceptable because the film didn't pretend seriousness and therefore didn't mock it.

That's why Pulp Fiction was so popular. Not because all audiences got all or any of its references to Scorsese and Kubrick, but because the narrative and spatial structure of the film never threatened to go beyond themselves into signification.

Henry A. Giroux argues that Tarantino "empties violence of any critical social consequences, offering viewers only the immediacy of shock, humor, and irony-without-insight as elements of mediation.

None of these elements gets beyond the seduction of voyeuristic gazing Regarding the violence and nihilism in the film, Pamela Demory has suggested that Pulp Fiction should be seen in light of the short stories of Flannery O'Connor , [] which likewise feature "religious elements, banality, and violence with grotesque humor.

Pulp Fiction is full of homages to other movies. According to the filmmaker;. Everybody thinks that I wrote this scene just to have John Travolta dancing.

But the scene existed before John Travolta was cast. But once he was cast, it was like, "Great. We get to see John dance. All the better.

My favorite musical sequences have always been in Godard, because they just come out of nowhere. It's so infectious, so friendly.

And the fact that it's not a musical, but he's stopping the movie to have a musical sequence, makes it all the more sweet.

Jerome Charyn argues that, beyond "all the better", Travolta's presence is essential to the power of the scene, and of the film:.

Travolta's entire career becomes " backstory ", the myth of a movie star who has fallen out of favor, but still resides in our memory as the king of disco.

We keep waiting for him to shed his paunch, put on a white polyester suit, and enter the Odyssey club in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, where he will dance for us and never, never stop.

Daniel Day-Lewis couldn't have woken such a powerful longing in us. He isn't part of America's own mad cosmology Tony Manero [is] an angel sitting on Vince's shoulder Estella Tincknell notes that while the "diner setting seems to be a simulacrum of a 'fifties' restaurant The 'past' thus becomes a more general 'pastness' in which the stylistic signifiers of various decades are loaded in to a single moment.

The pivotal moment in which Marsellus crosses the street in front of Butch's car and notices him evokes the scene in which Marion Crane's boss sees her under similar circumstances in Psycho When Butch decides to rescue Marsellus, in Glyn White's words, "he finds a trove of items with film-hero resonances".

At the conclusion of the scene, a portentous line of Marsellus' echoes one from the crime drama Charley Varrick , directed by another of Tarantino's heroes, Don Siegel ; the name of the character who speaks it there is Maynard.

That's definitely the one to beat in that particular category! Neil Fulwood focuses on Butch's weapon selection, writing, "Here, Tarantino's love of movies is at its most open and nonjudgemental, tipping a nod to the noble and the notorious, as well as sending up his own reputation as an enfant terrible of movie violence.

Moreover, the scene makes a sly comment about the readiness of cinema to seize upon whatever is to hand for its moments of mayhem and murder.

The traditional Japanese sword, in contrasts, represents a culture with a well-defined moral code and thus connects Butch with a more meaningful approach to life.

Robert Miklitsch argues that "Tarantino's telephilia" may be more central to the guiding sensibility of Pulp Fiction than the filmmaker's love for rock 'n' roll and even cinema:.

Talking about his generation, one that came of age in the '70s, Tarantino has commented that the "number one thing we all shared wasn't music, that was a Sixties thing.

Our culture was television. Sharon Willis focuses on the way a television show Clutch Cargo marks the beginning of, and plays on through, the scene between young Butch and his father's comrade-in-arms.

The Vietnam War veteran is played by Christopher Walken, whose presence in the role evokes his performance as a traumatized G.

Willis writes that "when Captain Koons enters the living room, we see Walken in his function as an image retrieved from a repertoire of s television and movie versions of ruined masculinity in search of rehabilitation The combination of the mysterious suitcase lock is , the " Number of the Beast ".

Originally, the case was to contain diamonds, but this was seen as too mundane. For filming purposes, it contained a hidden orange light bulb that produced an otherworldly glow when the case was opened.

The interview resumes with Rodriguez discussing how radically the "knowledge" of the briefcase's contents alters one's understanding of the movie.

Despite Tarantino's statements, many solutions to what one scholar calls this "unexplained postmodern puzzle" have been proposed.

That movie, whose protagonist Tarantino has cited as a source for Butch, features a glowing briefcase housing an atomic explosive. Analyzing the notion, Roger Ebert dismissed it as "nothing more than a widely distributed urban legend given false credibility by the mystique of the Net".

Jules ritually recites what he describes as a biblical passage, Ezekiel , before he executes someone.

The first version of the passage is as follows:. The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.

Blessed is he who in the name of charity and goodwill shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children.

And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy My brothers. And you will know My name is the Lord when I lay My vengeance upon thee.

The second version, from the diner scene, is identical except for the final line: "And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you.

While the final two sentences of Jules' speech are similar to the actual cited passage, the first two are fabricated from various biblical phrases.

Tarantino's primary inspiration for the speech was the work of Japanese martial arts star Sonny Chiba. Its text and its identification as Ezekiel derive from an almost identical creed that appears at the beginning of the Chiba movie Karate Kiba The Bodyguard ; , where it is both shown as a scrolling text and read by an offscreen narrator.

The path of the righteous man and defender is beset on all sides by the iniquity of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.

Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper, and the father of lost children.

And I will execute great vengeance upon them with furious anger, who poison and destroy my brothers; and they shall know that I am Chiba the Bodyguard when I shall lay my vengeance upon them!

In the s television series Kage no Gundan Shadow Warriors , Chiba's character would lecture the villain-of-the-week about how the world must be rid of evil before killing him.

Two critics who have analyzed the role of the speech find different ties between Jules' transformation and the issue of postmodernity.

Adele Reinhartz writes that the "depth of Jules's transformation" is indicated by the difference in his two deliveries of the passage: "In the first, he is a majestic and awe-inspiring figure, proclaiming the prophecy with fury and self-righteousness In the second It may make you feel good, but it certainly doesn't leave you any wiser.

Much of Pulp Fiction ' s action revolves around characters who are either in the bathroom or need to use the toilet. To a lesser extent, Tarantino's other films also feature this narrative element.

Butch and Fabienne play an extended scene in their motel bathroom, he in the shower, she brushing her teeth; the next morning, but just a few seconds later in screen time, she is again brushing her teeth.

After Marvin's absurd death, Vincent and Jules wash up in Jimmie's bathroom, where they get into a contretemps over a bloody hand towel.

As described by Peter and Will Brooker, "In three significant moments Vincent retires to the bathroom [and] returns to an utterly changed world where death is threatened.

In the Brookers' analysis, "Through Vince She links this fact with the traditional derisive view of women as "the archetypal consumers of pulp":. Locating popular fiction in the bathroom, Tarantino reinforces its association with shit, already suggested by the dictionary meanings of "pulp" that preface the movie: moist, shapeless matter; also, lurid stories on cheap paper.

Perched on the toilet with his book, Vincent is feminized by sitting instead of standing as well as by his trashy tastes; preoccupied by the anal, he is implicitly infantilized and homosexualized; and the seemingly inevitable result is being pulverized by Butch with a Czech M61 submachine gun.

That this fate has to do with Vincent's reading habits is strongly suggested by a slow tilt from the book on the floor directly up to the corpse spilled into the tub.

Willis reads Pulp Fiction in almost precisely the opposite direction, finding "its overarching project as a drive to turn shit into gold.

This is one way of describing the project of redeeming and recycling popular culture, especially the popular culture of one's childhood, as is Tarantino's wont as well as his stated aim.

Pulp Fiction won eight major awards from a total of twenty-six nominations, including a Best Original Screenplay win at the 67th Academy Awards.
