‘Pulp Fiction’ is one of those films, the conversations surrounding which I have little to add to, mostly because everything has already been said, in much better ways than I could ever dream of. It’s exciting then, that I landed a topic like this, regarding films that you can see if you love ‘Pulp Fiction’. I’m fairly certain that the majority of my readers fall into this category of Tarantino fandom (do forgive me if I’m wrong), and while my recommendations could literally weed out every single critically acclaimed film from the director, I’ve decided to not do exactly that.
‘Pulp Fiction’ is known for its non-linear storytelling, its colorful characters, snappy dialogue, and intriguing yet seemingly substance-less plot. I’ve tried to include films here that have similarities to the 1994 classic on the basis of plot, character-writing, storytelling, and theme. I hope you find the list to be an interesting read, because the main film at hand is one of my favorites of all time, and it wasn’t an easy job coming up with films similar to ‘Pulp Fiction’ while being entertaining enough for the people I’ve targeted. The number of Tarantino film recommendations have been reduced to give rise to fresher titles. You can watch several of these movies like ‘Pulp Fiction’ on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime.
10. Memento (2000)
Arguably director Christopher Nolan’s most ambitious film, ‘Memento’ is a giant experiment in editing that plays a game with its audience by telling a part of its story in reverse, intercut with another part told in the form of a normal, sequenced narrative, to give one of the most exciting neo-noir mysteries in film history. I don’t really enjoy the writing style practiced by the Nolan brothers, but this movie is backed by one of their best ever screenplays, and it’s amazing how they pulled off what they did on the budget they had. All of that being said, the ending (um, beginning) of the film feels a little off to me, and a couple of plot holes have me scratching my head, though the excitement I have as I see the picture washes over pretty much every major flaw it has.
