I watched this film the other day, and I found it really interesting. It's not for little kiddies, and involves lots of violence, drugs, sex and swearing, but in the film it isn't annoying or crucial to the film- it just sets the scene and adds to the atmosphere. Without giving too much away, it's basically, made up of several stories, all of which are closely connected, with the same characters appearing in different ones etc., there is no single grand plot. It is centred around criminals and gangsters, and their activities. There is a very black humour to it, but it works. I thought it was fascinating, entertaining, horrifying and funny in parts. 8/10

A lot of people say that it is disturbing how this movie tries to make violence "cool", but I think the violence isn't the cool part, the shattered structure of the story, the characters, the dialogues and the people are what made this movie a legend among movies.
If you liked Pulp Fiction and don't know any other Tarrantino movies yet (not sure how this is even possible) you should get out now and get them. Start with Reservoir Dogs. Do it like Mr.Wolf:"that's 30 minutes away, I'll be there in ten".
Ahh, this thread should have been made long ago, The movie is great not for the killing but for the situations and resolutions withing the movie and all the ineresting events within the two days that the movie takes place. I think its interesting how the movie isn't shown in direct chronological order, it makes you have to think about some things while still being greatly enjoyable.
This is indeed a great movie, (yes, I have seen it). Mr. Wolf was a great character. "Just because you are a character dosen't mean you have character". hehe. Also, if you like the likes of 'Pulp Fiction' and 'Resevoir Dogs', try: 'Snatch', or 'Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels'. British film at it's best :)
Its a nice movie, I enjoy watching it, let alone quoting it. The jumpyness of the film kind of annoyed me the first time I saw it, but it wore off afterwords.
