Puppet Fiction 2014
Quentin Tarantino created the story for Pulp Fiction, an American crime movie, along with Roger Avary. Pulp Fiction explores four interconnecting tales of crime and violence in Los Angeles, California.
Scenes that Avary originally penned for True Romance (1993) were included into Tarantino’s 1992 and 1993 film Pulp Fiction. Its plot doesn’t follow a strict timeline. A lot of a number of subjects, and the film features an ironic combination of strong violence and humour. The script was supposedly rejected by TriStar Pictures because it was “too demented,” but Miramax co-chairman Harvey Weinstein was intrigued and the movie ended up becoming the first Miramax fully financed project.
Won the Palme d’Or and enjoyed enormous critical and financial success. It received seven Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, and won for Best Original Screenplay. It also helped launch the careers of Travolta, Jackson, and Thurman. Its creation, promotion, release, and financial success had a significant impact on independent film.
Pulp Fiction is hailed as Tarantino’s masterpiece, with special attention paid to the screenplay.  Due to its self-reflexivity, unique plot, and copious tribute and parody, reviewers have called Pulp Fiction a benchmark of postmodern cinema. It is frequently seen as a cultural turning point because of how its aesthetic influenced filmmaking and other forms of media. The cast received a lot of appreciation as well, with Travolta, Thurman, and Jackson receiving special mention. It was considered the finest movie since 1983 by Entertainment Weekly in 2008, and it has been included on many critics’ lists of the best movies ever created. The Library of Congress chose Pulp Fiction in 2013 for preservation in the United States National Film Registry because it was “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.”
The story of Pulp Fiction is told out of chronological order and follows three primary interconnected stories, each with a different protagonist: Butch Coolidge, a prizefighter; Jules Winnfield, Vincent’s business partner; and hitman Vincent Vega.
The movie starts with a couple staging a robbery at a restaurant, then it jumps around to several storylines before returning to the diner for the climax. There are seven narrative scenes, and intertitles are used to set up the three main storylines:
(i) “Prologue – The Diner”
Earlier work before “Vincent Vega and Marsellus Wallace’s Wife”
The movie “Vincent Vega and Marsellus Wallace’s Wife”
“The Gold Watch”‘s prelude (a – flashback, b – present)
With “The Gold Watch”
called “The Bonnie Situation”
“Epilogue – The Diner”
The seven sequences would go as follows in chronological order: 4a, 2, 6, 1, 7, 3, 4b, 5. Sequences 2 and 6 are shown from separate points of view, and Sequences 1 and 7 partially overlap. The structural form, in the words of Philip Parker, is “an episodic narrative with circular events adding a beginning and a refer to the structure as a “circular narrative”.
Jules Winnfield and Vincent Vega, two hitmen, go up at an apartment to get a briefcase from Brett’s business partner for their boss, gangster Marsellus Wallace. Jules shoots one of Brett’s associates after Vincent examines the briefcase’s contents. He quotes a verse from the Bible, and he and Vincent then murder Brett for trying to betray Marsellus with Brett.
Jules and Vincent inspect themselves for injuries before shooting the other man who comes out of the restroom and started firing at them. Vincent dismisses Jules’ claim that their survival was a miracle as they depart in a car with Brett’s friend Marvin. In broad daylight, Vincent accidently kills Marvin by shooting him in the face, leaving a bloody trail that covers Jules, Vincent, and the interior of the automobile. At the home of Jules’ buddy Jimmie, who insists they solve the issue before his wife Bonnie gets home, they hide the automobile. Winston Wolfe, a cleaner sent by Marsellus, gives Jules and Vincent instructions on how to clean the vehicle, conceal the body in the trunk, get rid of their bloody clothing, and tow it to a junkyard.
Jules, who believes that their “miraculous” survival at the flat was proof of divine intervention, informs Vincent at a diner that he intends to give up his life of crime. A duo known as while Vincent is in the lavatory. Jules uses the package’s contents to divert Pumpkin before overpowering him and holding him at gunpoint. Honey Bunny erupts in hysteria and raises her weapon at Jules. Jules diffuses the situation when Vincent returns with his gun pointed at her. He quotes a verse from the Bible, admits he leads a life of crime, and permits the robbers to take his money and run. With the briefcase in hand, Jules and Vincent depart the restaurant. They give Marsellus the briefcase and wait while he pays boxer Butch Coolidge to foul in a forthcoming battle.
The following day, Vincent buys heroin from Lance, his narcotics dealer. After taking a shot, he drives to meet Marsellus’ trophy wife, Mia, where they would be escorted while Marsellus is away. After eating at the 1950s-themed Jack Rabbit Slim’s and competing in a twist competition, they go home. Mia discovers Vincent’s heroin when he’s in the lavatory and snorts it, thinking it’s cocaine. She overdoses, and Vincent hurries her to Lance’s place, where they administer an adrenaline shot to bring her back to life. Mia is dropped off by Vincent at her house, and the two make a pact not to tell Marsellus about what happened.
When Butch double-crosses Marsellus with the bribe money, he wins the fight but accidently kills his opponent in the process. He gets ready to depart with his lover, Fabienne, knowing that Marsellus will send hitmen after them, but he finds out that she has forgotten to pack a gold watch that has been passed down to him through his family. He hears the toilet flush as he heads back to his flat to get it and spots a rifle on the kitchen counter. Butch shoots Vincent dead and leaves as soon as he leaves the loo.
Marsellus notices Butch halted at a stop sign, and Butch rams into him before being struck by an approaching automobile, leaving both of them hurt and confused. When Marsellus awakens, he fires at Butch and chases him into a pawn store. The shop owner, Maynard, grabs them at gunpoint, holds them in the basement, and binds and gags them as Butch obtains the upper hand and prepares to shoot Marsellus. Marsellus is taken into another room by Maynard and his sidekick Zed, who then start to rape him while the “gimp,” a solitary figure in a bondage outfit, keeps an eye on Butch. The gimp is rendered comatose when Butch escapes. He resolves to stay and save Marsellus, arming himself with a katana he bought from the pawnshop. Zed is shot in the crotch by Marsellus after he kills Maynard and frees him. Marsellus tells Butch that they are even, to keep the rape a secret from others, and to leave Los Angeles for good. Zed’s motorbike is used to pick up Fabienne, and they ride off.
