“It’s a Chopper Baby!” PULP FICTION Midnights This Weekend at The Tivoli
“That’s thirty minutes away. I’ll be there in ten.”
PULP FICTION plays midnights this weekend (May 27th and 28th) at the Tivoli (6350 Delmar Blvd, St. Louis, MO) as part of their Reel Late at the Tivoli Midnight series.
I watch PULP FICTION every couple of years and it just gets better. The icy wit, the connoisseur soundtrack, the violence , the extended dialogue riffing, the trance-like unreality, the inspired karmic balance of the heroin scene and the adrenalin scene, the narrative switchbacks that allow John Travolta to finish the film both alive and dead, the spectacle of him being made to dance badly, but also sort of brilliantly …and above all else, the sheer excitement that Tarantino managed to conjure up in 1994. Today this touchstone of cool seems to extend its dangerous influence everywhere: movies, fiction, journalism, media, fashion, restaurants, you name it. Everyone has been trying to do irony and incorrectness since, but without Tarantino’s brilliance. Experience PULP FICTION on the big screen again when it plays this Friday and Saturday (May 27th and 28th).
Reel Late at the Tivoli takes place every Friday and Saturday night and We Are Movie Geeks own Tom Stockman (that’s me!) will be there with custom trivia questions about the film and always has DVDs, posters, and other cool stuff to give away. Ticket prices are $8
