Cool Stuff: The Works – Tony Scott

This week, after putting out a great video of Rian Johnson, he quickly hit us with a great video of the work of Tony Scott. Watch below:

Cool Stuff: Video Essay Dissecting ‘Pulp Fiction’

Last week Peter Labuza and Matt Zoller Seitz over at Press Play posted a fantastic video essay dissecting one of my all-time favourite films from one of my all-time favourite filmmakers, Pulp Fiction.

What’re your theories on Pulp Fiction?
