From Library Staff
Pulp Fiction won the Palme d'Or in 1994, followed by Quentin Tarantino picking up the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay and quickly becoming one of the biggest filmmakers in the world.
“Pulp Fiction,” directed by Quentin Tarantino. Yes, this movie is mostly about two mob hit men and the misadventures they have.

From the critics
Sexual Content: 9/10. No actual scenes but has MUCH sexual diolouge, cheating on spouses. Grapihic talk about sex and a male on male rape scene (which isn't graphic but disturbing non the less)
Violence: 10/10 Extreme. There is a very disturbing OD scene. Assassinations get very violent. Someone has their head blown off (the most graphic scene) blood and brains splatter over everyone (this later is a major subplot line). People are shot and stabbed. Much gore.
Coarse Language: Extreme 10/10. Had the record for F-Bombs for a while clocking at something like 300. Other profanities are used. Lot's of sexual language.
Frightening or Intense Scenes: Intense OD scene, I can see how it might be scary. A lot of suspense = everything becomes way more intense
Violence: Lots of guns, and even a sword... Some nice blood and brains. Keep in mind that most of the blood and violence is very unexpected and then the aftermath is pretty drawn out.
Coarse Language: Lot's of swearing, but that's kind of expected... People are a bit too sensitive to it I think...
Violence: This title contains a lot of violence and other disturbing scenes...

“Hamburgers: the cornerstone of any nutritious breakfast.” -Jules Winnfield
You see that, young lady? Respect. Respect for one's elders gives character.
I have character.
Just because you are a character doesn't mean that you have character.
Vincent: A "please" would be nice.
The Wolf: Come again?
Vincent: I said a "please" would be nice.
The Wolf: Get it straight, Buster. I'm not here to say "please". I'm here to tell you what to do. And if self-preservation is an instinct you possess, you better ****ing do it and do it quick. I'm here to help. If my help's not appreciated, lots of luck, gentlemen.
Jules: No no, Mr. Wolfe, it's not like that. Your help is definitely appreciated.
Vincent: Look, Mr. Wolfe, I respect you. I just don't like people barking orders at me, that's all.
The Wolf: If I'm curt with you, it's because time is a factor. I think fast, I talk fast, and I need you two guys to act fast if you want to get out of this. So pretty please, with sugar on top, clean the ****ing car.
Jules: "What do they call a Big Mac?"
Vincent: "Well, Big Mac's a Big Mac, but they call it, 'le Big Mac'."
Vincent: "Ahh man, I shot Marvin in the face."
Jules: "Why the fuck'd you do that?!"
Vincent: "I didn't mean to do it, it was an accident."
Jules: "Man, I seen some crazy ass shit in my time, but this?"
Vincent: "Chill out man. I told I didn't mean to do it. You probably went over a bump or something."
Jules: "Ain't tryin' to hit no motherfuckin' bump."
Butch: I think I cracked a rib.
Fabienne: Giving me oral pleasure?
Butch: No, retard, from the fight.
You ever read the Bible Brett? There's a passage I got memorized, seems appropriate for this situation: Ezekiel 25:17. "The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you."
