Pulp fiction ~ trailer analysis

  1. 1. TRAILER ANALYSIS GENRE – Crime Fiction/ Thriller/ Indie/Drama PULP FICTION
  2. 2. NARRATIVE CHARACTER TYPES Protagonists/AntiHero’s – Vincent Vega and Jules Winfield Butch Coolidge – Protagonist Marsellus Wallace – The Dispatcher Mia Wallace – The Princess
  3. 3. NARRATIVE STRUCTURE • Part 1: Equilibrium, trailer lists all the titles that the film has won e.g. ‘Best picture of the Cannes film festival’, a relaxing music accompaniment is played along side of this. All is then disrupted when loud gunshots shoot through the titles and a fast paced iconic song kicks in, to match this pace, every clip is shown for a few seconds and then cut, I think this is representing the pace of the film. Later on in this part, the music changes to an off beat, slow-paced song where multiple narrative plots begin to be explained. • Part 2: The equilibrium is then disrupted when we see 2 of the main characters shooting towards the screen as it flashes, I think this was done to show a clear division between each act, Tarantino clearly wanted this to be a significant part in the trailer. A funkier, faster song then bursts in and the action begins in sync, the cuts then gradually build up whilst the music does. • Part 3: The music cuts out again (this happens frequently during the trailer so that we can hear the dialogue clearly) and then the song that was played in the intro comes on, the actors are introduced visually and verbally, as the trailer comes to a close we see the iconic shot of Samuel L Jackson and John Travolta firing their guns.
  4. 4. CAMERA AND MISE EN SCENE • Throughout the trailer there is a large range of postmodern shots used e.g. the shot on the left has been filmed from inside the boot of the car, this makes the characters look very intimidating and makes the viewer feel as if they are in the boot. I have noticed that this shot is a signature shot from Tarantino’s films because he used it in almost every one. • Tarantino paid a lot of attention to costumes, props and décor in this film, as you can see all the characters had a very bold costume on that helped you remember them, the costumes that these characters wore are now very iconic and well-known e.g. Jules Winfield and Vince Vegas black and white suits. • On the left they feature a shot in some sort of celebrity look-alike café, where we see a Marilyn Monroe clone rein acting a famous photograph of her dress blowing up.
  5. 5. EDITING AND SOUND • The editing in this trailer is all done very fast, they use cuts edits between each clip to match the speed of the film and also to keep the suspense throughout the trailer. • A lot of title cards were used in this trailer e.g. at the beginning rolling credits were used to promote the awards that the film won and was nominated for. Whilst these were being shown, a narrator was reading them out, I think this was done to bring more attention to them. • When these titles stop, suddenly bullet holes burst through the text signifying the genre of the film – CRIME • The red titles represent the blood and gore that will be shown in the film. • In this trailer a lot of different songs are played, I think each song is played along side each separate narrative, each song is specialised to the pace of the storylines.
