5. Pulp Fiction

Genre: Drama

Release Year: 1994

Reservoir Dogs may have launched Quentin Tarantino’s filmmaking career, but it’s with Pulp Fiction where he made a name for himself in movies. The 1994 film, winner of the Palme D’or at the Cannes Film Festival, is a masterfully non-linear tale of people linked to each other trying to overcome difficult circumstances over the course of two days.

Those difficult circumstances are claiming a boss’ stolen property, taking the boss’ wife out for a nice night out (hint: it’s not such a nice night out), escaping the trouble that leads into bigger trouble and a massive mess that requires a professional to clean up. All of them add together to tell the story of lives caught in a constant loop of hoops to jump through.

The film’s cast is astounding, with John Travolta, Uma Thurman, Samuel L. Jackson, Ving Rhames, Tim Roth, Harvey Keitel, Bruce Willis… the list goes on. Each find such wonderfully memorable lines and moments, combining Tarantino’s distinct voice and style to make what’s still today his best film.

There are plenty of Tarantino films on Netflix, but it’s Pulp Fiction that holds a special place in his work as a landmark movie that still holds up just as perfectly as it did at its release.
