I was flipping through the channels this evening and ran across Pulp Fiction. It was about halfway through. Usually I’ll just keep on surfing when that happens. But with Pulp Fiction, the rules are different. I had to stop what I was doing and watch the rest. What a movie.
I caught it just as John Travolta and Uma Thurman were eating a late dinner at the Hollywood diner, right before they got up to dance. One of my favorite dance scenes of all time. (Close behind that is JT in the movie Michael, when he’s dancing with all the women at the bar.)
The twists and timing of the scenes in Pulp Fiction are crazy: Bruce Willis discovering John Travolta as he’s coming out of the john. Then JT, still alive and in the apartment with Samuel L. Jackson, who is delivering his Ezekiel speech. The start of the movie is the end of the movie. Or is it the other way around?
