The Pulp Fiction Movie Page
Tarantino's second movie is 1994's Pulp Fiction. It stars John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Willis, Tim Roth, Ving Rhames, and Uma Thurman. The movie title is a reference to the early 20th century book genre "pulp fiction" known for its cheap, pulpy paper pages and underworld topics such as: gangsters, violence, drugs, and overtly sexual (for the time) situations. Probably the most famous writers from this genre were Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler.
