Directed by Quentin Tarantino | 1994

With John Travolta, Uma Thurman, Samuel L. Jackson

Perhaps no filmmaker has gained more traction appropriating blackness than Quentin Tarantino, who, in this compulsively entertaining, endlessly quotable instant classic, casts himself as the n-word spouting husband of a black woman. In her righteous essay on Pulp Fiction, bell hooks observes that Tarantino “represents the ultimate in ‘white cool’: a hard-core, cynical vision that would have everyone see racism, sexism, homophobia but behave as though none of that shit really matters.”
