Pulp Fiction debuted at Cannes 24 years ago

Quentin Tarantino Uma Thurman John Travolta Cannes 2014

You may be surprised to hear that it’s been almost 25 years since Pulp Fiction had its premiere at Cannes Film Festival.

Seriously, it doesn’t seems that it was more than two decades ago, but it’s true, we have checked many times hoping to see it was a mistake because no one likes the fact of growing old. But we are becoming wise too, right? Right?

So on May 21st, 1994, the visitors of the famous Cannes Film Festival had an opportunity to see the movie which was described in Rolling Stone magazine as a gamechanger and modern classic.

Two days later, on May 23rd, this Quentin Tarantino’s masterpiece was awarded Palme d’Or.

The movie was quite a surprise for the audience in Cannes because all of a sudden they found themselves watching people shooting, cleaning a dead body mess, torturing each other, sticking a needle straight into the heart… it was like someone rashly woke them up with the noise.

Pulp Fiction became a must-see movie. Everyone wanted to watch it and everyone was impressed, one way or another. Last but not least, it brought a lot of money.

As die-hard fans of Tarantino movies, we have chosen, as a closing line, this great short description from the 10-best Cinema list that Time published in 1994 (Pulp Fiction was No. 1 on the list): “Quentin Tarantino’s adrenaline rush of a melodrama is a brash dare to timid Hollywood filmmakers. Let’s see, he says, if you can be this smart about going this far.”
