      The black humor of juvenile spirit: dilute all crises with laughter

      Recently, I have been watching black humor topics, and my works include classic black humor movies such as "Pulp Fiction", "Two Smoking Guns", "The Killer Has No Vacation", "Crazy Stone", and almost all the films of the Coen Brothers; As well as the novel Catch-22, I found that they almost all share a secret, the gameplay of narrative strategy.

      Take Pulp Fiction as an example

      Quentin's 1992 debut, "Reservoir Dogs," has...

      Read Quentin in one sentence

      After reading Pulp Fiction again, I suddenly realized that Quentin is such a person.

      What kind of person is Quentin?

      Its simple, other people's films tell stories, his films tell people. Or to be more specific, other people's films tell the whole story through the way of telling people, and he explains the people through the way of telling the story.

      My guess is that Quentin must first have such a few characters in his mind, and then set up scenes and plots for these...

      The Fullness of Characters in Pulp Fiction

      Just finished watching this movie and wanted to talk about the characterization of this movie from a non-professional perspective.

      The narrative structure is ingenious. I think such a multi-angle narration is the director's desire to break the time limit in a short time span to fill the character's image as much as possible. Many split-shot movies are rough on the characters in order to achieve the delicate plot design, but this movie is special in that it focuses on the most daily...

      Although some people bleed, I still want to be happy

      Pulp fiction is always listed in the classic, must-see, hundred movies. So everyone has seen it, and it has been seen over and over again.
             Look at the various coincidences in this supposedly cruel and bloody underworld with a playful eye. Everything seems to be arranged, even if the disaster was avoided at the beginning, in the end, he had to die in Huangquan. A group of irrelevant people got together for no reason. In a big city, the more people who don't want to see it, actually...

      After Viewing "Pulp Fiction"

      I watched an interesting movie "Pulp Fiction", the plot is very attractive, the plot is very interesting, the characters are very personal, the narration and shooting techniques are relatively unique, the plot changes are very large, but the first time I watched it, it didn't matter much. understand.

      When I watched it again, I found that the more I watched it, the more interesting it became. The "vulgar" content was full of the film: sex, drugs, violence, murder, robbery, gangsters,...

      The stars gather. Quentin's success lies in the fact that the stories lacking a plot are combined in a ring structure, and they are immediately shortlisted for the best movie in the film industry. It consists of five parts: the prologue, the wife of Vincent and Marsha, the golden watch, the situation of Bonnie, and the epilogue. In the seemingly independent stories, there are also interlocking people and events. PS 24-year-old Uma Thurman, Quentin kept her in her most beautiful year. The PPS...

      Quite a few are super boring nonsense + shit and piss plot + blood plasma, but after reading it, I feel a kind of fascinating + funny. From the gangster boss beating the perverted little brother and establishing a friendship with Butch, the plot has become compact. Then the eldest brother who rushed out like a fan to give people's heads, the black brother who started to force religion after killing people, the eldest brother who wanted to chat but accidentally killed people, the director who...

      Watched this shitty movie three times just to be on the safe side, and now I'm pretty sure it doesn't have any more flavor than some kind of cliché about narrative structure. Just like a bunch of plastic flowers, it looks like a false prosperity, but it is really empty....

      I love it, I don't even feel the need to praise its circular narrative or its deep meaning, I'm just fascinated by Quentin's dark romance. The sweetness of that twisting dance, the air kisses behind the back without saying a word after a joke, she was finally no longer the unpredictable person who was in a mess, softly repeating the embarrassment of "ketchup" and looking like a shy little girl . How can I not love. What a good love, just out of reach, in an...

    Lens

    When Jules and Vincent were driving in the car, the reflection of their car could be seen in the background, which was shot on a trailer.
    Coherence: In the scene where Jules and Vincent retrieve the box from the apartment, some different errors can be seen twice, including: bullet holes in the wall, Jules' speech, Jules' gun .
    Coherence: When Jules picked up the hamburger that Bullitt was eating, the size of the hamburger....

    Evaluation action

    In terms of the narrative structure, Tarantino is also the same as his previous style, instead of adopting the common chronological structure, but using a sophisticated structure of nested flashbacks and multiple lines in a loop to tell the whole story. Come. In the film, different stories surrounding Los Angeles gangsters, boxers, mysterious suitcases, accidental fire escapes and hotel robberies are explained at the same time, and...

    Movie quotes

    • Lance: Am I a nigger? Are you in Inglewood? No. You're in my house. White people who know the difference between good shit and bad shit, this is the house they come to. My shit, I'll take the Pepsi Challenge with Amsterdam shit any ol' day of the fuckin' week.

      Vincent: That's a bold statement.

      Lance: This ain't Amsterdam, Vince. This is a seller's market. Coke's fucking dead as disco. Heroin's comin' back in a big fuckin' way. It's this whole seventies retro. Bell bottoms, heroin, they're hot as Hell.

    • Jules: 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."

    • Jules: Why you so interested in the big man's wife?

      Vincent: He's goin' out of town, Florida. And he asked me if I'd take care of her while he's gone.

      Jules: [motioning a gun to the head] Take care of her?

      Vincent: No, man. Just take her out. Show her a good time. Make sure she don't get lonely.

      Jules: You're gonna be taking Mia Wallace out on a date?

      Vincent: It is not a date. It's just like if you were gonna take your buddy's wife to a movie or somethin'. It's just good company, that's all.

      [Jules looks at him as though to say, 'Really?']

      Vincent: It's not a date. It's definitely not a date.
