How do you write about a film that everyone has written about? What is there left to say? This film changed the course of film for a good decade. It created its own sub-genre of QT knockoffs. It changed the way many of us thought about film. It’s fucking STAR WARS for the boomslang crowd. It’s the dime store novel where the characters are gray, there is no moral center, and the environment oozes a kind of cool you want to roll up and smoke like a pack of a Kools.
This wasn’t the moment that Tarantino hit me though, he had already done that with RESERVOIR DOGS. This was the moment that I thought the fucker was about to put a hurt on Hollywood. This film is a masterpiece, plain as Jane.
SEE YOU ON FORTY DEUCE,
