It's no coincidence that Pulp Fiction made a star of Samuel L. Jackson, who embodied Tarantino's devolution of blaxploitation heroism (a prototype that was always community conscious) as a figure of single-minded, craven, remorselessness.


Dumbest thing ever said.  Jules struggles with God and Providence and mercy throughout PF.  Was this writer not even listening?  "But I'm trying, Ringo.  I'm trying real hard to be the shepherd....."

He's neither single-minded, craven, or remorseless. He's none of the above.  He's complicated, he struggles with his own violence, his own evil profession.  He pities the very criminal (Roth) who tries to victimize him.   This critic needs to pull his/her head out of his/her ass and get a clue about just how complex QT's reaction to blaxploitation was.

Movie-nerd Tarantino goes for shock, but he also aims for pain. His penchant for pop effects does not erase the fact that this is a black woman butchered by a white woman....


.....who was butchered previously by that very same black woman.  

ARGH!  It's a revenge plot you moron!  What do "pop effects" have to do with it?  What "pop effects" is that critic even talking about?

God, utter fucking bullshit.....
