    As I Was Moving Ahead Occasionally I Saw Brief Glimpses of Beauty


    I don't remember the names of my great-grandparents.

    Quentin Tarantino's vapid mess of a follow-up swallows the novelties of Reservoir Dogs and regurgitates them into a sickening and gelatinous peak of post-modern cinema.

    Hailed at the time for its never-before-seen non-linear narrative (The Killing? ? The Conformist?) and it's original decade-long dialogue scenes (Godard?) while simultaneously being praised for its ingenious "references" to these very works, Pulp Fiction laid the groundwork for the immature mediocrity that Tarantino would wallow in…
