Pulp Fiction actors reunite at TCM Classic Film Festival

Actors John Travolta, Uma Thurman, Harvey Keitel, and Samuel L Jackson of Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction came together for the opening of the TCM Classic Film Festival the other day to celebrate their film's 30th anniversary. Pulp Fiction is part of the film festival, whose theme this year is "Most Wanted: Crime and Justice in Film." The festival is also screening Chinatown, Dog Day Afternoon, Dirty Harry, North by Northwest, On the Waterfront, and In Cold Blood

Every screening at the TCM Classic Film Festival has a special introduction that offers context to the films, a festival tradition. The screening of Pulp Fiction this Thursday at the Chinese Theater in Hollywood, California, included a discussion with its stars Travolta, Jackson, Keitel, and Thurman.

Travolta discussed how "Pulp Fiction is part of cinema history, with such classics as Gone with the Wind and Lawrence of Arabia." Samuel L Jackson talked about Tarantino's characterisation and storytelling style.

Tarantino directed the film that came out in 1994 from a screenplay by him and Roger Avary. The screenplay of Pulp Fiction earned the duo an Academy Award in 1995 and has since been a big part of pop culture, film schools, and film discussions online. The film, considered a cult classic today, also stars Bruce Willis as a boxer named Butch Coolidge, Christopher Walken as Captain Koons, and Ving Rhames as Marsellus Wallace. It is best known for its humour in otherwise serious situations, nonlinear narrative, and portrayal of gangsters as 'cool' characters.
