Starring Samuel L. Jackson, John Travolta and Uma Thurman, Pulp Fiction exploded on to the screen in 1994 and transformed the direction of contemporary cinema. Nominated for seven Oscars and winner of the BAFTA award, this triplet of masterfully interwoven crime stories is witty, gritty and shamelessly violent, displaying Tarantino's visceral approach to character and plot. Tarantino has spawned a whole host of wannabes in the wake of this, the defining movie of the 1990s. But none has demonstrated the elegant style and compassion that make Tarantino's screenplays so compellingly readable. Nominated for seven Oscars, Pulp Fiction starred John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Willis and Uma Thurman and won the US Oscar for Best Screenplay, the BAFTA and the prestigious Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival. Quentin Tarantino's other films include Reservoir Dogs, Jackie Brown, From Dusk Till Dawn and most recently, Inglorious Basterds and Django Unchained.
