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.
