I'd pair it with Pulp Fiction
3 September 1999 | by (Montréal) – See all my reviews

A young first time film maker who plays in his flick. Guns and guts splashed all over. Some very outrageous moments. Wacky characters and outrageous situations. Bound to make you laugh with unease and faint any lady in the tv room. This is unreal given you get rid of expectations and give it room to be outrageous. This guy has a great career before him. Remember his name and watch it here years from now.
