One of the defining films of the 1990s, Pulp Fiction was the “Seinfeld” of crime-caper movies, with long stretches of amusingly trivial chatter tied together by wild coincidences. The film's success inspired a slew of knock-offs, rekindled John Travolta's career—thus making Battlefield Earth possible—and afforded director Quentin Tarantino the cachet to make any film he wanted. Though the director's 2009 war epic Inglourious Basterds was an even bigger box-office hit, Pulp Fiction remains his signature work. The film screens for free tonight at sunset as part of Discovery World's outdoor Fish Fry & A Flick series, following a Bartolotta fish fry that begins at 5 p.m.
