Not the best movie. Not the one that touched you the most deeply or the one that had you cheering the loudest. Not the best-written, -acted or -directed. Not the one that’s rewarded you with fresh insights over countless viewings. Simply the one that gave you the most flat-out joy while you were watching it for the first time.
Mine would be Pulp Fiction. I don’t even think it’s Tarantino’s best movie, but its combo of dark humor, crazy violence and bizarre plot twists had me gaga from first minute to last.
How about you?
