What was in the Briefcase?
About the only thing that sticks with me as terribly incongruous about Pulp Fiction is wondering what exactly were Brett and his buddies doing with the apparently very valuable property of Marsellus Wallace. They come across like a bunch of not terribly competent college kids, way out of MW's league.
So what was he doing having Brett and his buddies even working for him in the first place not to mention holding that briefcase?
Fans of film, video games and comics love coincidence in their stories. Noticing connections between story universes, characters intertwined with characters from other works and pop-culture symbols can give fans a glimpse into the mind of the writer and director. Finding these “Easter eggs” is like mining nuggets of entertainment gold.
I'm working on a project identifying some of the fonts used in Pulp Fiction. I''m looking mainly at intentional usage of fonts: titles, created products, etc.
Earlier in the movie, Eric Stoltz's character asks "I'm all out of balloons, is a baggie okay?"
Now I am no drug expert but am I to infer that heroin is supposed to go into a balloon and cocaine into a baggie? And Mia Wallace thought that was cocaine and that's why she overdosed?
A friend of mine who knows a lot more about drugs than I do said that's not true, but what do you guys think?
I will be glad if you have the answer :)
