Writer-director Quentin Tarantino (Jackie Brown, Django Unchained and The Hateful Eight) raised his game with this story told out of chronological order, full of punchy dialogue and graphic violence. In an ode to the pulp magazines and crime novels of the mid-20th century, the lives of several characters are creatively woven into four tales that make up the core theme of this modern classic. The film won the Cannes Film Festival’s Palm d’Or and received seven Oscar nominations, including for Best Picture and Best Director, winning for Best Screenplay. It re-ignited the then-fading career of John Travolta and helped awaken a cinematic industry that many insiders felt had become safe and lackluster. The Library of Congress selected it for preservation in the National Film Registry in 2013.
