The Gold Watch story in Pulp Fiction, an In-depth Analysis

Rob Ager, the film critic behind gives an in-depth analysis of The Gold Watch scene in Pulp Fiction. He uses video and narrative to build a case that much more symbolism and story is being transmitted than first meets the eye.

Anyone with more than a casual interest in the film will appreciate Mr. Ager's analysis as it will give the viewer even more to think about during subsequent viewings of the film. Nicely done!

It's a great (if a bit hard to understand accent-wise for yanks) analysis if the Gold Watch story. Given the deep insight of Mr. Ager and popularity of this move it would be great to see more analyses of the other stories in Pulp Fiction. Well done mate! I intend to watch all your other ones too.


Nice article. A bit of an over-analysis but that's the bread and butter of literary criticism, isn't it?


I too thought Ager's work was great, but an over-analysis of sorts. To me that watch symbolized honor. I think this movie is one of the greatest movies (if not the greatest) ever made. The watch was a significant plot device unlike perhaps the briefcase.


Awesome stuff
