The Final Season - Week 6: Pulp Fiction

Pulp Fiction.jpg

Quentin Tarantino, 1994

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.
