Tarantino's second movie is 1994's Pulp Fiction. It stars John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Willis, Tim Roth, Ving Rhames, and Uma Thurman. The movie title is a reference to the early 20th century book genre "pulp fiction" known for its cheap, pulpy paper pages and underworld topics such as: gangsters, violence, drugs, and overtly sexual (for the time) situations. Probably the most famous writers from this genre were Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler.

The Gold Watch story in Pulp Fiction, an In-depth Analysis

Rob Ager, the film critic behind collativelearning.com gives an in-depth analysis of The Gold Watch scene in Pulp Fiction. He uses video and narrative to build a case that much more symbolism and story is being transmitted than first meets the eye.

Anyone with more than a casual interest in the film will appreciate Mr. Ager's analysis as it will give the viewer even more to think about during subsequent viewings of the film. Nicely done!
