10/14/1994 Pulp Fiction opens

October 14, 1994.  Quentin Tarentino's crazy masterpiece Pulp Fiction opened on this date.  Several storylines weave through, with thematic connections rather than chronology.  The hero (or at least anti-hero) of one story is the villain in another, and a character we see die, strolls by cheerfully in a later scene that (in real time) takes place earlier.  It was nominated for several Oscars,  winning  for Best Screenplay.  (Forrest Gump beat it for Best Picture.)  It won the Edgar for Best Movie, natch, and restarted the career of John Travolta.
