I think you could write psychoanalytical diarrhea of the keyboard and be published as well.
However, I see the movie a different way. A simpler way. A non-psychobabble horseshit way.
They are characters in a world. They may be different stories, but they are all about the same world. Characters in a world intertwine and relate. Nothing is new, except in this movie, he tells separate stories about the supporting characters in this world.
Good vs. evil and right vs. wrong is a conflict in damn near EVERY movie. Just because QT expressed it with rapists and pop culture and all the other horseshit mentioned in the article/ your reply doesn't mean it doesn't boil down to the same damn thing as all these other movies.
NONE OF THIS IS ABOUT THE WORLD AS A WHOLE. Can the world relate to characters? Sure. But it's not this huge all-encompassing statement about the unbearable battle between evil and good that all of humanity faces and that B-grade Book of Revelations you and Crouch spell it out to be.
QT didn't tell a NEW story with Pulp Fiction. He just told it differently. People took notice because of its unusual structure and its harsh violence.
