Can't see the "Forrest" for the Royale with cheese

Tuesday, July 30, 2019

Looking back, 1994 was a stellar year for film. Consider some of the best flicks from 25 years ago, including "The Shawshank Redemption," "The Lion King," "Quiz Show," "Hoop Dreams," and "Four Weddings and a Funeral." But film fans often argue that the heavyweights that year were "Pulp Fiction" and "Forrest Gump." The latter earned Oscar gold in the form of the Best Picture winner at the Academy Awards. But the former is regarded by many critics and cinephiles as easily the best movie of 1994--and possibly the 1990s.

Writer Adam Nayman just wrote a fantastic essay on this topic, one that makes a solid case for why "Pulp Fiction" is the much better film--one that changed cinema forever. I highly recommend this read, available here.
