    DescriptionWhen "Pulp Fiction" was released in theaters in 1994, it was immediately hailed as a masterpiece. The "New York Times" called it a "triumphant, cleverly disorienting journey," and thirty-one-year-old Quentin Tarantino, with just three feature films to his name, became a sensation: the next great American director. Nearly twenty years later, those who proclaimed "Pulp Fiction" an instant classic have been proven irrefutably right. In "Pulp Fiction: The Complete Story of Quentin Tarantino's Masterpiece," film expert Jason Bailey explores why "Pulp Fiction" is such a brilliant and influential film. He discusses how the movie was revolutionary in its use of dialogue ("You can get a steak here, daddy-o," "Correct-amundo"), time structure, and cinematography--and how it completely transformed the industry and artistry of independent cinema. He examines Tarantino's influences, illuminates the film's pop culture references, and describes its phenomenal legacy. Unforgettable characters like Jules Winnfield (Samuel L. Jackson), Vincent Vega (John Travolta), Butch Coolidge (Bruce Willis), and Mia Wallace (Uma Thurman) are scrutinized from all-new angles, and memorable scenes--Christopher Walken's gold watch monologue, Vince's explanation of French cuisine--are analyzed and celebrated. Much like the contents of Marcellus Wallace's briefcase, "Pulp Fiction" is mysterious and spectacular. Illustrated throughout with original art inspired by the film, with sidebars and special features on everything from casting close calls to deleted scenes, this is the most comprehensive, in-depth book on "Pulp Fiction "ever published.

    Back cover copy
    In this first-ever complete history of the movie dubbed "nothing less than the reinvention of mainstream American cinema" by "Entertainment Weekly, "discover everything about Quentin Tarantino's brilliant 1994 film--from its origins to its sensational release (screaming women! fainting men!) to its phenomenal effect on how movies are both made and seen. We'll get down to brass tacks, describing what Marsellus Wallace looks like (and what might be in his briefcase), why hamburgers--preferably Big Kahuna burgers--are the cornerstone of any nutritious breakfast, and much more. The book is illustrated throughout with glorious "Pulp"-inspired artwork, images of movies and cultural touchstones that influenced Tarantino, and a stunning selection of movie stills and behind-the-scenes photos from the film's production--included thanks to the generous cooperation and support of Quentin Tarantino and Miramax Films.
