Pulp Fiction (1994)
Most critics hailed this foreboding film a watershed, even "the first masterwork of the post modern pop culture generation" (Brian Laidman). Three separate and non linear plot lines intersect in an orgy of violence, racism, sadism, black humor, and stream of consciouness vulgarity. Old school movie released the same year: Forest Gump. New school enfant terrible: writer-director Quentin Tarantino.
