The Final Season - Week 6: Pulp Fiction

Welcome to movie 99 of MotR's10 Years/100 Movies final season! We hope to see you this Tuesday, August 13th, for Quentin Tarantino's post-modern cult classic, Pulp Fiction.

We resisted doing Pulp Fiction for a very long time, but there's no denying the impact it had on American film. Like Bonnie & Clyde, Pulp Fiction set off a new era of independent filmmaking where writers and especially directors were seen as auteurs -- the singular creative masterminds behind their art. Tarantino draws as much inspiration from Hitchcock and Sergio Leone as he does from blacksploitation and kung-fu films of the 1970s to create a style that was truly new, and undeniably signature.

For the people who haven’t seen Pulp Fiction (or any Tarantino) this movie is chock full of foul language, sexuality, drug use, gratuitous violence, and ‘adult situations’. It earned its hard R! Viewer discretion is advised - if you need parental guidance, Tom’s mom will be there. :)

There may be some rain in the morning, but the afternoon and evening are predicted to be lovely and clear. If things change we'll post to the website and Facebook, and we look forward to seeing you!

We're really looking forward to sharing this with you! Hope to see you Tuesday! The days are getting shorter and sunset is earlier in the back half of the season. You're welcome anytime after 6pm, the show will start around 7:50pm.
