Cinematography Spotlight: Pulp Fiction

It’s hard to believe Quentin Tarantino’s masterpiece Pulp Fiction was released in cinemas 20 years ago today – that almost makes it an adult in the eyes of the law. Here are 20 widescreen Cinemascope reasons – part of a wider series diligently captured by Evan Richards – that show exactly why the cinematography by Andrzej Sekula, with all its unconventional framing and use of strange angles and vantage points, is among the very best of the 1990s. Sekula, who was born in Poland, was also the cinematographer on Reservoir Dogs and is best known for his work on those two early Tarantino films.

    This is one movie I’ll have to re-visit again…I saw it twenty years ago and remember nothing about it! And if we’re voting for our favorite photo of the bunch, I’m going with the nighttime street lit by streetlights.

      I like that shot too. You should really give it another go if you don’t remember much about it – it’s a great, great film I reckon. One of my favourites.
