Tarantino unveils Pulp Fiction at the Cannes Film festival. It is well received and earns him the Palm d’Or. The crime-driven movie follows the interactions of multiple characters in a circular “self-referential” structure. John Travolta and Uma Thurman play the film’s protagonists and are joined by Samuel L. Jackson, Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth, and Bruce Willis.
When I’m writing a movie, I hear the laughter. People talk about the violence. What about the comedy? Pulp Fiction has such an obviously comic spirit, even with all the weird things that are happening.
