Part of Depot's Early Tarantino season

One of the most influential films of the 1990s, Pulp Fiction is a delirious post-modern mix of neo-noir thrills, pitch-black humour, and pop-culture touchstones.

Two hitmen set out to retrieve a suitcase stolen from their mob boss employer, who has also asked one of them to take his wife out a few days later while he is out of town. An ageing boxer is paid by the mob boss to lose his next fight. Two young lovers and small time thieves decide they need a change of venue ... The lives of these seemingly unrelated people are woven together in a wildly entertaining and exhilarating motion picture adventure that both thrills and amuses.

'It's full of perfect Tarantino moments, with meta references, B-movie sleaze and a sheer sense of fun' - Kate Muir, The Times
