Gran Apertura Vol#5- Pulp Fiction

Gran Apertura means "Great Opening" in Italian. I felt it was an appropriate title for the new column I will be writing here at C-C-D. I love movies, but every once in a blue there is an opening segment in a movie that just sets the bar way to high for the rest of the flick. This opening scene is so good, it can't be topped by the rest of the movie itself. Or, sometimes the opening scene is part of an excellent film, and it does the job of getting you roped in. No matter what, the opening scene in a movie is probably THE MOST IMPORTANT scene in the whole film. So this column will highlight some of the greatest opening segments from the wide world of cinema. If you like what you see, maybe you will go ahead a check out the films in completion. Happy Viewings!!!

Pulp Fiction - 1994

One of my all time favorite movies, and the one that put one of my favorite directors, Quentin Tarantino, on the map. The opening scene is important, because in the non linear story line of the film, it all comes full circle back in the diner. I love this movie more then words can express. Enjoy this first scene, and if you never seen this movie... besides being ashamed of yourself, get to a video store!!!!
