The film was nominated for seven Oscars, including Best Picture; Tarantino and Avary won for Best Original Screenplay. It was also awarded the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. A major commercial success, it revitalized the career of its leading man, John Travolta, who received an Academy Award nomination, as did costars Samuel L. Jackson and Uma Thurman.
The movie is fun to watch. There is no great storyline but still you will be hooked to the movie because of its non-linear structure. If you deviate your attention from the movie, you will be wondering whats happening on screen 🙂
