Lawrence Bender’s Success and Role in “Pulp Fiction”

Good movies offer great entertainment and wonderful memories. However, many a time we don’t know or remember the producers behind some of our favorite films. One of the most popular movie producers is Lawrence Bender. He has worked in the entertainment industry for about three decades now.

Some of his notable works include “Pulp Fiction,” “Reservoir Dogs,” “Inglourious Basterds,” “Alien Abduction,” “Django” and “88 Minutes”. Bender’s work hasn’t gone unnoticed, as he has won 6 Academy Awards and received multiple Oscar nominations in categories such as the best picture film.

“Pulp Fiction” is one of my favorite movies by Lawrence Bender. The feature film starred many A-list actors that including Bruce Willis, John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson. It featured an interesting plot that revolved around criminal activities in Los Angeles, CA. Bender, in collaboration with Quentin Tarantino, made a follow-up sequel titled Kill Bill.

The dialogues in “Pulp Fiction” are engaging and memorable. They captivated my attention so much that I actually forgot that the movie was 154 minutes long. Some of my favorite lines in the movie are:

Jules: Say ‘what’ again… I dare you. I double dare you.

Mia: … you know you’ve found someone special when you can shut up for a minute and share the silence.

At some point, Jules quotes the biblical book of Ezekiel, which turns out to be interestingly poetic. I was perturbed at how the cinematography blended well with the artistic words spoken throughout the movie.

Another thing I liked about the movie was how Lawrence Bender used background music to set the tone for different scenes. The music not only suited the scenes but also sounded amazing. In my opinion, the background music took the movie to another level.

As seen in most of his works, Producer Lawrence Bender has achieved a lot during his career. He has built a legacy for himself with the help of his close friend Tarantino and many other talented individuals in the industry. Bender owes much of his success to his educational background. He studied Civil Engineering at the University of Maine before he took an interest in the film industry.
