A local university student has today officially entered young adulthood as an alternative individual, after paying $50 dollars for a the poster artwork of Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction, a film that was released roughly three years before she was born.
“Yeah, it’s one of my favourite movies” says Katie Mason (19).
“That, and Donnie Darko”
Pulp Fiction is a 1994 American black comedy neo-noir crime film written and directed by Quentin Tarantino, and starring John Travolta and Uma Thurman. The film was directed in a highly stylized manner and tells a series of criminal stories from the underworld of 1990s Los Angeles. The film’s title refers to the pulp magazines and hardboiled crime novels popular during the mid-20th century. It is known for it’s graphic violence and use of the n-word.
Katie, who up until six months ago still had a One Direction poster in her bedroom, has made it clear that she’s not really into the Marvel and DC franchises that are currently taking cinemas by storm – and that she’s more into dialogue-heavy ‘films’ that are presented out of chronological order.
“Everyone is talking about Hemsworth. Give me a balding Bruce Willis covered in blood any day”
Katie is yet to illegally download the entire Kill Bill triology, but says she’s pretty much hooked on anything with Uma.
At time of press, Katie was discovering the music of Elliott Smith – a musician who she now describes as the most underrated singer-songwriter since Rodriguez.
