The Making of Pulp Fiction

Pulp Fiction

Jackson, Travolta, Keitel, and Tarantino pose in front of the house where Tarantino’s character lives.

For the Vanity Fair article “Cinema Tarantino: The Making of Pulp Fiction,” journalist Mark Seal catches up with director Quentin Tarantino and the producers and cast of the 1994 independent movie Pulp Fiction. In addition to the detailed article, Vanity Fair has posted photos and ephemera from the set.

The project was Pulp Fiction, three intertwined crime stories set in Los Angeles. “Like the way New York is an important character in New York crime films, I would make Los Angeles an important character,” Tarantino tells me. “Then I started thinking about all of the characters overlapping The star of one story could be a small character in the second story and a supporting character in the third story and all that kind of shit.”
