Pulp Fiction (18)

Celebrate 25 years of Tarantino’s neo-noir classic with a 35mm screening.

Pulp Fiction is a delirious and stylish mix of neo-noir thrills, pitch-black humour and pop-culture touchstones, accompanied by possibly one of the best soundtracks ever set to film. The interwoven stories of a sprawling cast of characters enthralled audiences in the 1990s, making Pulp Fiction one of the most popular films of its era.

It was met with considerable praise from the public, and won the 1994 Palme d’Or at Cannes. 25 years later, the influence of the film is boundless: Tarantino’s sharp, propulsive dialogue and an ingrained understanding of ‘cool’ have inspired a whole generation of filmmakers.

This film is screening as part of Celluloid Saturday and as part of Women in Widescreen.

Introduction

This screening will be introduced by The Celluloid Sorceress, Rebecca Nicole Williams.
