Paul Thomas Anderson,
One of the best making of documentaries I've ever seen
I used to watch a lot of making of documentaries on DVD's. Eventually, I got tired of them, because most of the documentaries contain the same things. When I bought the DVD of Pulp Fiction, I was very pleased with the other features on the disk, so I decided to watch the documentary titled "Pulp Fiction: The Facts."
This documentary is a making of feature, but it also features interviews with the cast and crew. Some interviews are recent, but some are from over 10 years ago. It starts out by interviewing Quentin Tarantino, along with Producer Lawrence Bender. They tell the story about how Tarantino started out. It even shows footage from Tarantino's first film "Reservoir Dogs." Most of the stars are interviewed, and it even covers topics in the film, such as how Tarantino made three stories come together as one, how the film was conceived by audiences, and even a quick segment about Tarantino's view on violence.
To top it all off, there is some behind the scenes footage, mainly of the part where Butch hits Marcellus with his car. At the end of the documentary, there is footage of the Cannes Film festival, and there is also information about the awards that Pulp Fiction won and was nominated for.
This was definitely worth watching. Anyone who enjoyed Pulp Fiction, or likes Quentin Tarantino should see this. It is only half an hour long, and in that half hour, the viewer gets just about all the information they could want, without being overloaded or bored.
