    Still feeling so box-fresh, it’s hard to believe it’s 20 years since Quentin Tarantino followed debut Reservoir Dogs with this Big Kahuna of a movie. A triple-decker LA crime-tale, with “a bunch of gangsters doin’ a bunch of gangster shit”, as Samuel L. Jackson’s hitman puts it, QT gave the genre an adrenaline shot bigger even than the one John Travolta plunges into Uma Thurman. Twisted, kinky, bizarre – and that’s just the scene with The Gimp – even Quentin’s gourmet coffeemaking cameo doesn’t derail this pop culture classic. Now where did we put our gold watch?

    While the litany of useless jive-talkin' crime caper imitators which followed looked tired even on first viewing, Tarantino's intricately woven saga of scumbags and unlikely heroes is still as fresh and staggeringly original as the day it roared onto the big screen. Why? Well, the pitch-perfect cast is one thing, but mainly it's because, for all his big-chinned fanboy nerdishness and misguided acting aspirations, Tarantino understands what makes movies `cool' and delivers on every count. Crackling storytelling, whipsmart dialogue and great characters. It just doesn't get any better than this.

    Four intertwining tales of betrayal, loyalty, and crime shed some light on the whacky lives of hitmen, mob wives, and boxers. Five years on and Tarantino's epic still rewards repeat viewing. Fresh and deeply funny, it retains its power to both repel and fascinate. A pastiche of old Hollywood studio movies, with a post-modern veneer and irony-heavy existential rambling, this triple tale of troubled gangsters works. Why? Because beyond the wisecracks, ultra-violence, twisted, time-jumping plot and wickedly funny scenarios, you actually care about the characters.
