Pulp Fiction (18) - Matinee
Saturday 09 December 2017
3:30pm - 6:30pm
Film Unit Cinema in the Nelson Mandela Auditorium
A pair of ice-cold hitmen, a gangster's wife, a boxer on the run, a coffee shop hold-up and a mysterious briefcase intertwine.
Part of the Film Unit Autumn Programme.
Director: Quentin Tarantino Cast: Samuel L Jackson, John Travolta, Uma Thurman, Bruce Willis Country: USA Note: This screening will be subtitled for the Hard of Hearing. A mosaic of intertwining stories, Quentin Tarantinoâ€™s violent epic needs no further introduction as it comfortably settled in film history as a cult-classic. Following two mob hitmen discussing life, massages and hamburgers, a couple trying to rob a diner, the careless and cool wife of a gangster and a boxer winning when he shouldnâ€™t have, the sprawling story shifts into high gear from the beginning and takes no breather. Tarantinoâ€™s style can be fully witnessed in the spectacle that Pulp Fiction is, full of: pop-culture references, exquisite turns of phrases from characters in love with words, extreme situations, over-the-top violence and dark humour. Each of the characters ends up meeting the others in a non-linear story while being stuck into a cycle of violence, a mishmash of reimagined scenes from classic genre films.
