About the author
- Dana Polan is a professor of critical studies in the school of cinema-TV, university of Southern California. He is the author of several publications including In a lonely place.
- In this book, Dana Polan sets out to unlock the style and technique of Pulp Fiction. He shows how broad Tarantino's points of reference are, and analyzes the film's considerable narrative accomplishment and complexity. In addition, Polan argues that the macho attitudes celebrated in the film are much more complex and fragile than they sometimes seem.
Mini review: Dealing with Tarantino's masterpiece Pulp Fiction, it's offering nice analyis and very in-depth trivia. I own a book of the same series (BFI Classics) and those are generally great bargains. Must-read for fans and must-read if you have to analyze the film yourself (review by tarantino.info)
