Quentin Tarantino’s feature debut follows a group of men attempting to sort out why and how their jewellery heist failed.
Dir Quentin Tarantino
With Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Steve Buscemi
Quentin Tarantino’s audacious feature debut was an important moment for American independent cinema in the 90s, bringing a fresh blend of stylised violence, pop culture references and non-linear storytelling. Following a failed jewellery shop heist, a group of men find themselves holed up in a warehouse as they try to get to the bottom of what went wrong. Perhaps the film’s language and violence was too much for Academy voters, but Tarantino made up for the loss with his follow-up, Pulp Fiction.
