It’s a visceral experience.
Pulp Fiction, his second feature production begins by lulling you into quiet state, and then hits you over the head – and then the Main Titles hit.
It’s a terrific cinematic experience.
I like the film a great deal, and had trepidations about the new 4k, knowing that it was coming from Paramount, but I’m thrilled by what I’m seeing and hearing. It was shot on a normal speed Kodak stock, and while the 4k appears almost grainless, it’s there. At least I presume that’s the original grain, although anything is possible.
But bottom line, resolution has not been tainted, it looks fabulous, and that’s what matters. I’ve got to believe that Mr. Tarantino, as a film geek, would not have approved a de-grain.
Color, densities, black levels and stability are all state of the art, and the track will clean the lint from your speakers.
The overall resolution in projection is magnificent.
A beautiful representation of the film on a tiny silver disc.
