The poster for the film Pulp Fiction is an homage to the days when 10 cents could buy a day's worth of entertainment printed on cheap paper pulp.
The film itself, populated as it is by gangsters, drug dealers, perverts and common robbers, is the cinematic version of pulp fiction brought to life by Quentin Tarantino.
