Pulp Fiction is the latest movie from writer/director Quentin Tarantino.Tarantino, whose first film (Reservoir Dogs) gathered quite a cult following, hasgone over the top with his sophomore effort.

Fiction stars John Travolta,Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, and Uma Thurman. It contains three basic,violent stories that cross paths and have an effect on each other. One story isabout two hit men (Travolta and Jackson) who accidentally kill a youth in theircar. From there we go to Bruce Willis, a boxer who is supposed to lose a fixedboxing match, but instead splits with the money (after he wins, killing hisopponent). The third story is about Travolta's character, Vincent Vega (brotherof Vic Vega, "Mr. Blond," of Reservoir Dogs) who escorts his mob boss's wife todinner and dancing. All this sounds pretty dull, and re-hashed, but Tarantinomakes it seem like all fresh material.

These three stories don't go inorder, but rather are tied together in a sequence of flashbacks. In one sceneTravolta and Jackson are in the same restaurant as the guy from the robberystoryline.

Tarantino has a flare for the strange, violent and funny. Inone scene where Travolta kills the kid in the backseat, he says "Oops" as thoughhe had spilled his coffee. You don't know if you should laugh, or be horrified.

Pulp Fiction is a great movie, which some people won't like. For realaction movie fans, it's a quality piece of "Fiction."
