Film Analysis: Pulp Fiction
with Andrew Chirchirillo, PhD
Pulp Fiction is a movie about lowlifes.
It presents us with three of the oldest chestnuts in the world: Two hitmen out on a job; a boxer who is supposed to throw a fight; a guy who’s supposed to take out the boss’s lady. The characters in these three stories are linked by their connection to a crime boss, Marsellus, and framed by the story of a young couple in the midst of robbing a diner.
