Yesterday I saw Pulp Fiction for the first time. I did not see this movie when it was released or afterword because of its dark, violent reputation.  But what was dark and violent by the standards of 1996 seems mild today demonstrating that [something disturbing about our society].  I enjoyed the way the movie circled back on itself;  the characters were endearing though they talked too much.  A sign of how respectable this movie has become is that it is part of the Criterion collection.
