    It’s easy to compare Pulp Fiction with Kill Bill. Most people who watch these movies are so wrapped in the violence that they don’t really see the many different layers about the violence in these films. Pulp Fiction is more of a movie about a mobster culture whose tied with a sense of morality that in some ways resembled our own. There were good deeds, and there was betrayal.
